Gluon develops Java-based solutions. We are laser-focused on realizing the dream of ‘write once, run anywhere’ Java for a new generation of mobile devices.
Our Gluon Mobile library can massively improve time-to-market for applications, by providing APIs for modern ‘material design’ user interfaces, accessing mobile device features, connecting to web services, and synchronizing state across many devices.
Our Gluon CloudLink service provides the backend for synchronizing your application state across your deployments, regardless of the device.
Products & Services
The Gluon Mobile library takes care of all the grunt work, so you can focus on the important aspects of your code.
In particular, Gluon Mobile helps with the visuals, data connectivity, and making use of hardware embedded in mobile devices.
Having your software be part of the cloud has never been easier. Gluon CloudLink takes care of authentication, storage, client access synchronization in a secure, elastic, and performant way. Use the Gluon Mobile library to easily connect to Gluon CloudLink – don’t concern yourself with networking technicalities!
Don’t want to host your data in the cloud? Use Gluon CloudLink On-Premise to have your own cloud hosted behind your VPN.
Gluon Desktop is a ‘convention over configuration’ application framework designed exclusively for building cross-platform desktop applications. It has been designed from the ground up with a focus on having a minimal API, and to also handle as much of the work behind the scenes as possible.
Tools & Open Source
After Sun/Oracle open-sourced the JavaFX framework, there were no technical barriers preventing it from being ported to Android and iOS. This work is coordinated by JavaFXPorts.org. Apart from porting, tools are created that make it easy to deploy applications into the AppStore and the Play Store.
This work forms the underpinnings for much of the Gluon technology stack.
Scene Builder is an open source tool that allows for drag and drop design of JavaFX user interfaces.
Gluon offers IDE plugins for NetBeans, IntelliJ IDEA and Eclipse. Use these plugins to quickly and easily build a Java mobile client!
Gluon Ignite allows developers to use popular dependency injection frameworks in their JavaFX applications, including inside their FXML controllers. Gluon Ignite creates a common abstraction over several popular dependency injection frameworks (currently Guice, Spring, and Dagger, but we plan at add more as the demand becomes obvious). With full support of JSR-330 Gluon Ignite makes using dependency injection in JavaFX applications trivial.
Gluon Maps was created to provide a map engine that can render tiles from different providers (e.g. OpenStreetMap, MapQuest,…) and that developers can use as the base display for their own geo-location based applications.
