What is Mobile First?

IBM MobileFirst Foundation, formerly known as IBM Worklight®, is a suite of software development products that allow developers to build and deliver mobile applications for the enterprise.

The MobileFirst Platform Foundation consists of:

MobileFirst Server – the middleware tier that provides a gateway between back-end systems and services and the mobile client applications.  

MobileFirst API - both client and server-side APIs for developing and managing your enterprise mobile applications.

MobileFirst Studio - an optional all-inclusive development environment for developing enterprise apps on the MobileFirst platform.  This is based on the Eclipse platform, and includes an integrated server, development environment, facilities to create and test all data adapters/services, a browser-based hybrid app simulator, and the ability to generate platform-specific applications for deployment. 

MobileFirst Console – the console provides a dashboard and management portal for everything happening within your MobileFirst applications.  

MobileFirst Application Center - a tool to make sharing mobile apps easier within an organization.  Basically, it’s an app store for your enterprise.

BM talks about the MobileFirst Platform in two ways, based in its capabilities and also by its components. The capability areas are: Continuously Improve, Secure, Contextualize and Personalize, and Enrich with Data.

Continuously Improve - allows IT to manage application refresh cycles and collect in-app usage analytics.
Secure - provides enterprise mobility management (EMM) capabilities. 
Contextualize and Personalize - allows developers to create mobile apps that are location- and context-aware.
Enrich with Data - allows IT to join its mobile apps to internal and external data sources by connecting directly with IBM's Cloudant database as a service (DBaaS).

What is Ionic Framework ?

   Ionic is an HTML5 mobile app development framework targeted at building hybrid mobile apps. Hybrid apps are essentially small websites running in a browser shell in an app that have access to the native platform layer. Hybrid apps have many benefits over pure native apps, specifically in terms of platform support, speed of development, and access to 3rd party code.
 
Since Ionic is an HTML5 framework, it needs a native wrapper like Cordova or PhoneGap in order to run as a native app. We strongly recommend using Cordova proper for your apps, and the Ionic tools will use Cordova underneath.
 
Ionic is focused mainly on the look and feel, and UI interaction of your app. onic currently requires AngularJS in order to work at its full potential. While you can still use the CSS portion of the framework, you'll miss out on powerful UI interactions, gestures, animations, and other things.

What is Hybrid App?

Hybrid apps, like native apps, run on the device, and are written with web technologies (HTML5, CSS and JavaScript). Hybrid apps run inside a native container, and leverage the device's browser engine (but not the browser) to render the HTML and process the JavaScript locally.

Benefits

-Developer can use existing web skills
-One code base for multiple platforms
-Reduced development time and cost
-Easily design for various form factors (including tablets) using responsive web design
-Access to some device and operating system features
-Advanced offline capabilities
-Increased visibility because the app can be distributed natively (via app stores) and to mobile browsers (via search engines)

Top Frameworks for Hybrid App

1)IONIC
2)Mobile Angular UI
3)Intel XDK
4)Appcelerator Titanium
5)Sencha Touch
6)Kendo UI
7)PhoneGap

What is Spring MVC?

The Spring Web model-view-controller (MVC) framework is designed around a DispatcherServlet that dispatches requests to handlers, with configurable handler mappings, view resolution, locale and theme resolution as well as support for uploading files. 

The default handler is based on the @Controller and @RequestMapping annotations, offering a wide range of flexible handling methods. With the introduction of Spring 3.0, the @Controller mechanism also allows you to create RESTful Web sites and applications, through the @PathVariable annotation and other features.

Spring Web MVC you can use any object as a command or form-backing object; you do not need to implement a framework-specific interface or base class. Spring's data binding is highly flexible: for example, it treats type mismatches as validation errors that can be evaluated by the application, not as system errors. 

Thus you need not duplicate your business objects' properties as simple, untyped strings in your form objects simply to handle invalid submissions, or to convert the Strings properly. Instead, it is often preferable to bind directly to your business objects.

Spring's view resolution is extremely flexible. A Controller is typically responsible for preparing a model Map with data and selecting a view name but it can also write directly to the response stream and complete the request. View name resolution is highly configurable through file extension or Accept header content type negotiation, through bean names, a properties file, or even a custom ViewResolver implementation. 

The model (the M in MVC) is a Map interface, which allows for the complete abstraction of the view technology. You can integrate directly with template based rendering technologies such as JSP, Velocity and Freemarker, or directly generate XML, JSON, Atom, and many other types of content. The model Map is simply transformed into an appropriate format, such as JSP request attributes, a Velocity template model.

Spring MVC, like many other web frameworks, is designed around the front controller pattern where a central Servlet, the DispatcherServlet, provides a shared algorithm for request processing while actual work is performed by configurable, delegate components. This model is flexible and supports diverse workflows.

The DispatcherServlet, as any Servlet, needs to be declared and mapped according to the Servlet specification using Java configuration or in web.xml. In turn the DispatcherServlet uses Spring configuration to discover the delegate components it needs for request mapping, view resolution, exception handling

What is Flexbox?

The Flexbox Layout officially called CSS Flexible Box Layout Module is new layout module in CSS3 made to improve the items align, directions and order in the container even when they are with dynamic or even unknown size. The prime characteristic of the flex container is the ability to modify the width or height of its children to fill the available space in the best possible way on different screen sizes.

The Flexible Box Module, usually referred to as flexbox, was designed as a one-dimensional layout model, and as a method that could offer space distribution between items in an interface and powerful alignment capabilities.

To use flexbox layout just set the display property on the parent HTML element:

Example:


.flex-container {
  display: -webkit-flex; /* Safari */
  display: flex;
}

Or if you want to display it like an inline element use:

.flex-container {
  display: -webkit-inline-flex; /* Safari */
  display: inline-flex;
}
