Creating iOS Apps that Use Liferay

The Liferay Mobile SDK provides a way to streamline consuming Liferay core web services, Liferay utilities, and custom portlet web services. It wraps Liferay JSON web services, making them easy to call in native mobile apps. It takes care of authentication, makes HTTP requests (synchronously or asynchronously), parses JSON results, and handles server-side exceptions so you can concentrate on using the services in your app.

The Liferay Mobile SDK is compatible with Liferay Portal 6.2 and later. It comes with the Liferay iOS SDK and is ready for you to download and use. The official project page gives you access to the SDK releases, provides the latest SDK news, and has forums for you to engage in mobile app development discussions.

The Liferay iOS SDK bridges your native app with Liferay services. Once you’ve installed and configured the Liferay iOS SDK, you can invoke Liferay services from your app.

The iOS app development tutorials include the following topics:

  • Making Liferay and Custom Portlet Services Available in Your iOS App
  • Invoking Liferay Services in Your iOS App
  • Invoking Services Asynchronously from Your iOS App
  • Sending Your iOS App’s Requests Using Batch Processing

You can get started by making Liferay services available to your app. This is accomplished by installing the iOS SDK.
