Ottawa, Canada – February 15, 2013 – The Eclipse Remote Application Platform (RAP) project has announced the RAP 2.0 release. This new release represents a significant engineering effort that transforms RAP from a platform for creating browser-based rich internet applications to a universal platform for creating applications that target many different types of devices, including native mobile platforms, point-of-sale devices, inventory control devices, etc.
Mobile development and M2M development have made support for multiple types of devices an important requirement for enterprise application development. RAP 2.0 introduces a new JSON-based communications protocol that allows Java applications to be written once, deployed on a server, and then support a native client look-and-feel supported on a range of different target devices and platforms, such as iOS, Android, web browsers, and others.
