Java is becoming a first-class language for cross-platform mobile development. In this session, we give an overview of the status of Java on iOS and Android. We cover the VM and AOT options, the JavaFX UI framework (using javafxports), the IDE plugins and other tools, and the integration options with cloud and back-end systems.
The Write Once Run Anywhere idea is no longer a dream. Your favourite IDE and the Gluon plugin is all you need to create apps that can be uploaded to the App Store and Play Store.
