Implementing Animations and Transformations on the IBM i using CSS3 & jQuery Mobile and the IBM i
Trevor Seeney

September 15, 2015 FASUG Meeting

Session Abstract:
Implementing Animations and Transformations on the IBM i using CSS3

You no longer need Flash to create web-based animations and interactivity. With the introduction of CSS3 it is now possible to create animations and interactivity entirely in CSS markup.

Animations are used to draw the attention of the user to a particular location on the page. In today's environment, where mobile devices are more prevelant than desktop devices, animation is also used to slide-in additional content overlayed over the original content. This presentation will guide the attendee through the creation of simple animations for consumption on our server of choice the IBM i.

I created a little CSS3 animation that you might consider posting to the FASUG website to engender interest.


jQuery Mobile and the IBMi

jQuery Mobile is a HTML5-based Javascript framework with a user interface system designed to make responsive web sites and apps that are accessible on all smartphone, tablet and desktop devices. Note that the inclusion of the word 'mobile' in the name is a misnomer as it works very well on tablets and desktops.

There are many Javascript frameworks, (Ext-js, Dojo, midori, MooTools. Prototype, iUI) but JQuery Mobile is truly multi-platform and does not require a prior knowledge of Javascript and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). This presentation shows how to deploy the jQuery Mobile framework on the IBM/i and how it's "write less, do more" mantra allows you to design a single highly-branded responsive application that will work on all popular smartphone, tablet, and desktop platforms. JQuery Mobile provides the IBM/i programmer with a fast path to developing browser-based applications on our platform of choice. How would your business be transformed if you could run the same Client Access software on about any Operating System, like Macintosh, Linux and Windows? How about a new paradigm for deployment? Would the ability to run it from many different deployment locations like a Thumb Drive, Network Server, Web Deployment, or local Files System be of interest?

Our Speaker:

Trevor Seeney is an experienced software developer and technology consultant. Trevor's recent experience has been focused on developing web-faced applications using PHP and RPG-ILE against MySQL and DB2 databases respectively.

Trevor has delivered web-centric presentations at COMMON on the subject of Javascript and securing CGI applications written in RPG. Previously, Trevor specialized in system security. A COMMON presentation entitled 'How an iSeries/400 is hacked and how to stop it' spawned an article for Midrange Computing and a Webinar on Search-400. Trevor also developed a workstation security product for the System/i, which secures inactive work stations and is commercially available today under the name of ScreenSafer/400.
