WebKit + WindowsMobile



  • Hi all,

    I'm exploring possible solutions for a project on a Windows Mobile device that main requirements are:

    • a web-based application when user is online
    • a client application when user is offline

    A friend talked to me a little about Qt, but I've got a lot of doubts and I want an advice.

    I would know if I can do the web-based application with Qt-WebKit and detect when connection fall down, then launch automatically, and transparent for the user, the client application made with Qt too.

    Is it easy or could be expensive/hard?

    I hope I explained well.

    Thank you,
    SBC

    Yep, it is possible. You might have to detect the disconnection yourself and propagate it to the web sandbox but that is not a big deal.

    Quite a few application for embedded are made just like that actually.

    It is easy if you know C++.

    The one thing I don't know is the state of the port for Windows Mobile, especially now that Microsoft is killing the product. I work mainly on Linux embedded.

    You should ask on the forum "Mobile and Embedded" if Windows Mobile support is still active.
