A word from the writer and from O'Reilly Media approximately what this bookdoes--and doesn't--do:
Palm webOS is a new platform and represents a truly varied sort ofoperating approach the place the net runtime is used because the foundation for the UI andApplication version. Palm and O'Reilly felt that it was once very important to have abook to be had to aid builders get a uncomplicated figuring out of the recent Palmplatform on the time that the SDK was once published; this timing performed a majorrole within the content material and constitution of the book.
Ideally this booklet may were an entire reference of the hot platformbut that wasn't attainable because the content material used to be written while asthe software program SDK used to be being built via the Palm engineering workforce. The bookdoes supply an entire review of Palm webOS, a radical description ofthe program version and provides info on many key layout ideas. Thereare descriptions and examples of UI widgets, providers, storage,notifications, dashboards and history functions, serving as a greatintroduction yet now not as a definitive source.
The e-book makes use of an easy information reader program to demonstrate the technicaldescriptions however the examples usually are not meant to function a cookbooktutorial. skilled builders will be capable of use the examples to buildup a operating program bankruptcy by means of bankruptcy yet others won't locate theloose descriptions sufficient for recreating the applying unaided. additional time, those assorted wishes could be crammed by way of different books, yet in themeantime we are hoping that this e-book will serve a important function introducingdevelopers to webOS and giving them a manner of having begun with webOSapplication development.
