One of the tasks recently completed by the Lightstreamer engineering team has been to provide maximum support for all mobile platforms, so that any mobile app for any device could easily become real-time enabled.
The new release of Lightstreamer, codename Duomo, which will be publicly available next week, will contain a lot of exciting new features to extend the power of Lightstreamer's push to every mobile clients.
For each mobile platform, a dedicated full-blown SDK is provided, containing native libs, documentation, and source-code examples and demos. Supported platforms are: Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Java ME.
In addition to the above libs for creating native apps, the new Lightstreamer HTML lib is compatible with most mobile browsers, giving developers full flexibility in choosing whether to build native apps or browser-based apps (including HTML5).
Let's see some cool details about each of those technologies.
All the browsers, both desktop and mobile, can now take benefit from a brand new Stream-Sense algorithm. There are cases where some combinations of antivirus software and proxy servers block any form of streaming. The unique Stream-Sense algorithm of Lightstreamer automatically detects these situations and falls back to Smart-Polling mode, which provides a user's experience that in most cases is identical to real Streaming mode. The new Stream-Sense algorithm of Lightstreamer Duomo is super-fast and much more lightweight than before.
