We are happy to announce that we have worked with MetaCert to provide a
security API to enable our developers to protect their apps from malicious
and unwanted links.
Most mobile malware is downloaded when end users click on malicious links
inside legitimate apps. The MetaCert Security API adds a thin, but very
powerful, layer of security to your app.
The API allows you to check the reputation of web links in real time,
providing an invisibly secure experience. It can be used to block phishing
sites from loading or navigating to. You can also stop end-users from sharing
links that are NSFW.
To make it even simpler to use the MetaCert Security API, we have published a
MetaCert plug-in. Appery.io developers can quickly add the plug-in to any new
or existing app and check for the reputation of any web links in the app.
The plug-in configures the MetaCert Security API... (more)
A common question we get asked is: “What is the difference between
Appery.io and PhoneGap?”. The simple answer is Appery.io platform uses
PhoneGap (actually Apache Cordova). But let’s look into this more.
First, what is difference between PhoneGap and Apache Cordova?. Cordova is an
open source framework that has two core capabilities:
It allows to package an HTML/JS app as hybrid mobile app. Basically you run
HTML/JS app inside a native wrapper (hybrid app) but it basically looks and
behaves like a native app. This allows you to target multiple mobile
platforms using a single cod... (more)
I just got back from Stamford, CT where I did a talk at the Web, Mobile and
Backend Developers Meetup. In about 90 minutes we built a prototype version
of a productivity app called Vacation Request using Appery.io cloud
development platform. The app helps employees request and submit time off
from their mobile phones. The app has the following functionality:
User login and registration Submit vacation request. The request is saved
into Appery.io database Send an SMS message to the manager notifying him/her
of a new request Send an email to the manger notifying him/her of a new
I have seen this question more than once now, how do you add/delete a row in
a table? Turns out it’s pretty simple. Although you can’t do partial
table update which RichFaces supports, when adding or deleting a row, jut
render the entire table. This will also work with a standard JSF table. Also,
a related post is How to delete a row in JSF. RichFaces 3.3.3 is used.

I have two talks at JavaOne this year. One is a BOF and one is a general
conference session. I won’t be showing any slides, in both sessions I will
show how to build a real mobile app connected to cloud REST APIs. Everyone
will be able to test the app. Hope to see you there.
