Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video jQuery mobile integration, part of Dreamweaver CS 5.5 New Features.
With the Dreamweaver CS5.5 release, Adobe is adding several mobile…application development tools.…In this chapter, I want to go over some of those tools and along the way…discuss Adobe's strategy regarding Dreamweaver and mobile development.…Now the first thing I want to discuss is jQuery Mobile.…jQuery Mobile is one of the most popular mobile user interface open-source…frameworks in use today.…In the CS5.5 release, Adobe has integrated this framework into Dreamweaver,…which makes it extremely easy to build interfaces for your mobile applications,…even if you've never used jQuery or jQuery Mobile before.…
So I went ahead and redefined my site so that the root folder for the local…site is the 04_01 directory.…We don't have any exercise files for this particular example because we're…going to build it from scratch.…So the first thing I'm going to do is go up to File and choose New, and one…of the nice things that they've done to Dreamweaver that you might miss if…you're not really paying attention is they've added some things to the Page from Sample.…

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.
