Chapter 11 of Palm webOS Rough Cuts Now Available

Rédigé par Jonathan Downer le Mercredi 1 Juillet 2009

Chapter 11 of the O'Reilly Palm webOS Rough Cuts is available now - and you keep all those bankruptcy jokes to yourself. Heck, Appendix A is available now as well (thanks jbern8!). Since we missed reporting on Chapter 10, which is also available, we'll give you a quick run down of what to expect in both.

The tenth chapter is perhaps one of the most important, covering Background Applications:

Whether you're interested in building an advanced application or just want to add notifications to a basic application, this chapter covered some essential topics. There was a broad review of advanced multi-stage applications with an introduction to Notifications and Dashboards. You learned that advanced applications are based on an Application assistant, which can handle external launch requests and potentially run in the background. You were also shown how to customize your application's behavior when minimized, meaning switched out of the foreground view, and how to use the internal application notification chain to coordinate actions between assistants or share events and data.

As for Chapter 11, Localization and Internationalization (yep, thats a word) is the name of the game.

In this chapter, you will GET an overview of the framework's locale support and learn how to localize your application. We will localize the News application to Spanish and we will walk through each step of the localization process. In the last section, we'll cover some of the Internationalization APIs available in Mojo.

Between what we know of the leaked SDK, and what's being published in Rough Cuts, the webOS platform is shaping up to be a-plenty powerful, and certainly seems to be giving developers the freedom they need to develop quality applications. Let us know what you think in the comments!
