Company’s mobile application tools and platform integrate with Rational Team Concert to provide cross-platform development for smartphones and tablets

Worklight, the leading HTML5, hybrid and native platform for smartphone and tablet applications, today announced that it has successfully completed "Ready for IBM Rational Software" technical validation for the Worklight Solution for Rational, which enables development, integration and management of rich mobile applications.

The Worklight Studio, a key component of the platform, is an Eclipse-based IDE that enables developers to create multi-platform mobile apps using native or web technologies such as HTML5, CSS and JavaScript, or a combination of both methodologies. The Studio is now integrated with Rational Team Concert and Jazz Build Engine for improved team collaboration and reduced development time with delivery of automated builds for multiple devices.

“As companies seek to deliver unique mobile experiences, efficiency of app development and simplification of the cross-platform effort become critical,” said Ron Perry, CTO at Worklight. “We’re pleased to offer the Rational developer community a solution that addresses this challenge by leveraging key capabilities of Worklight and the IBM Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management and Software and Systems Engineering solutions.”

“Mobile application development typically results in high costs and unnecessary complexity as companies seek to overcome a fragmented landscape with conflicting standards and operating systems,” said Michael Loria, vice president, IBM Rational Business Development. “The Jazz-Worklight solution uniquely offers developers a flexible and automated process that overcomes significant challenges in enterprise mobility.”

The Worklight Solution for Rational leverages the Rational Team Concert build engine to provide centralized builds of iOS and Android apps, ensuring a controlled configuration and allowing multiple developers to use a single Mac computer to build iOS apps, for example. To learn more, please visit
