Abstract

Methods and systems are presented for lightweight update of mobile hybrid application web content without the need to resubmit the application to the public application stores and go through the approval process (subject to vendor?s terms of service). This method includes the utilization of the IBM Worklight system for developing mobile hybrid applications. Delta updates made to an hybrid application web resources are packaged as change-sets and uploaded to the Worklight server. When the mobile application connects to the Worklight server the system detects that an update is available. The delta change-sets are then delivered to the client application incrementally, to update the application to the latest version.
