Adapted access of web application via native mobile app
using PhoneGap

Context

An existing web application, containing an evolving Google Maps API component and a
collection of periodically updated images, needs to be made accessible by a native
application on Android, iOS and Windows Mobile. Due to security reasons this needs to be
done via tunneled web scraping. This is then presented in the app with a UI designed for the
mobile form factor.


To target all three big platforms in one code
-
base, the application will be based on
PhoneGap.

Use cases

1.

A user can use the developed mobile a
pplication to see the latest images from the
web application

2.

A user can use the developed mobile application to see and interact with a Google
Maps component containing the same markers as in the existing web application

Aspects / demands

1.

Security

2.

Applicat
ion built using PhoneGap

3.

The mobile app will follow a certain UI design pattern, much different from the UI
structure of the web application

Thesis goals



Develop a web
-
scraping capable application for Android, iOS and Windows Mobile
devices using PhoneGap



Use software tools or techniques to cut and crop large images into individually
presented sections



Develop a Google Maps component inside the PhoneGap application, which uses an
accessible data
-
set containing map markers

Key Metrics



Execution time for down
loading, parsing/processing and displaying of the quite large
map dataset and images over a mobile 3G connection



Frame rate performance of using a Google Maps component inside the PhoneGap
application
