Worklight is an Israeli startup that develops a platform that enables enterprises to develop cross platform apps.
The platform is comprised of an IDE and a server. The IDE is an Eclipse plug-in. The server is based on Tomcat and is developed and flavoured by Worklight.
The big idea behind the Worklight cross-platformism is that behind each native app there is a single web app. Write once, run everywhere.
The developer can add server and database interaction by writing Adapters. The adapters take care of HTTP requests and SQL queries, transmitted securely to the back-end services the enterprise has.
Each app built with the Worklight platform can have customizations per OS, with special design and native pages.
The Worklight platform can be downloaded here for free trial.
I started working in Worklight as a Mobile Infrastructure Developer in the beginning of this month. It's a great company, with amazing developers, and a product sure to conquer the enterprise mobile apps development industry. I am planning on being a linchpin in this company, learn and develop a lot.
