Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring mobile application frameworks, part of Dreamweaver CS5.5 New Features.
It's clear by looking at the Dreamweaver CS55 release that Adobe is very serious…about adding mobile development support to Dreamweaver.…In addition to the JQuery Mobile integration that we saw in our last movie,…Adobe has integrated the phone gap framework and added support for building and…emulating Android and iOS apps.…In this movie, we're going to take our mobile application and configure it…for Android phones.…While we do that, I want to talk about Dreamweaver's larger strategy for mobile…development and what your expectation should be in using Dreamweaver to develop…for mobile environments.…
Okay, so I am going to do a very unusual step here.…I want to go out and show you setting up a site for this particular movie and…our next example as well.…I'm going to minimize Dreamweaver and I have my exercise files directly out on the desktop.…If yours are on a different location, just go ahead and open those up.…Now, I'm going to go in the chapter 4 directory, and I'm going to find the 04_02 folder.…

Q: This course teaches us how to create mobile app in the "Mobile App Support" chapter and the app works great. But when we try to upload to android market, it says that the Android Market can't upload a debug/release version. What's wrong with the app?
A: As mentioned in the movie, the Dreamweaver emulator support does not create deliverable apps. It is designed to act as an IDE and debugging environment only. From there it is up to the developer to package and distribute apps to the various app stores.
Take a look at https://build.phonegap.com/. It's an early service dedicated to creating deliverable binaries for multiple platforms. Since it's PhoneGap, it's also the same framework used within Dreamweaver, so Dreamweaver based apps should port right over.
