Talk contents:

Building streamed iOS and Android mobile and web apps with one Java code

Experience how all apps, mobile or web, are built the same way with iizi!

Discover how one Java code and app streaming technology enables you to build a single cross-platform app for all devices and browsers.

Based on Eclipse IDE, Data Tools Platform (DTP) and Jetty web server, the iizi platform includes prototyping in real-time, UI design, debugging and testing, deployment, a production server with hosting and creation of web and mobile apps for tablet and phone for Android and iOS.

This introduction to iizi will cover:

  • The iizi event driven streamed architecture.
  • Using the VirtualSpace to model your app.
  • Prototyping the UI attached to the VirtualSpace.
  • Running the prototype on live devices during construction.
  • Using localization with automatic translation for multi-language apps.
  • Writing Java code for events in the VirtualSpace or the UI.
  • Using data connectors to populate VirtualSpace data (SQL, Web services).
  • Building and deploying the final iiziApp.
  • Experience New Gen apps live: “Follow-Me” and “Share”.
  • Creating a customized app for Android for Google Play and iOS App Store for publishing on the “stores”.

(Optional attendee requirement: download iiziRun Developer from Google Play or the App Store to your phone or tablet. Laptop users can use a modern browser. This requirement enables you to experience the prototype and app live.)

Come and see us in our “Mindus” exhibitor booth 7 for more live experiences!

Mindus joins the Eclipse Foundation, rethinking and empowering code

MINDUS Beyond Technology (orange-new-black)-white_bg-1998x623.jpg

Monaco, March 20, 2018 – Mindus joins the Eclipse Foundation as a Solutions Member. The Eclipse ecosystem and its extensible powerful development platform are in perfect harmony with Mindus ambition, that is to provide an easily accessible agile sustainable platform to make streamed event-driven apps. We strive to make life easier for non-coders, citizen, and professional developers. 

Based on Eclipse, iizi is the platform that changes the basic of apps. To optimize developers’ productivity, iizi rethinks and empowers code. iizi simplifies the coding complexity, agility and security for ultimate performance. Democratizing code widens diversity and creativity. It also helps to meet the growing demand of developers, enabling diverse people to integrate digitalization faster.

Build streamed apps with one Java code for iOS, Android and the web
Totally focused on Customer Experience, the iizi platform is an architecture producing server-based apps. Big or small, private, social, industrial, even large business applications; any app can be made with iizi. All apps, mobile or web, are built the same way with iizi. This means that you can build mob and web apps with one single Java code.

Features included in iizi platform to help developers are: prototyping in real-time, UI design, debugging and testing, deployment, a production server with hosting and creation of web and mobile apps for tablet and phone for Android and iOS.

Data protection, freedom from devices and customer services are major benefits from iiziApps. As apps are not running on the devices; the data is stored securely on the server, so optimal security is naturally implied. The apps can be picked up anywhere, from anything. Users do not lose a thing anymore, due to battery or connection failure. Disrupt customer services by producing a new gen of apps with iizi, e.g. apps that people can share with other people simultaneously.

The core of iizi is event and focus driven, making it so easy to unleash creativity, while also allowing instant prototypes, full customization and new apps challenges. All of this in Java.

“Eclipse IDE was chosen for its openness. We needed a powerful IDE with lots of extensibility and plugin possibilities, a good and solid architecture and API being multi-platform, supporting the Java language among other things” says Christopher Mindus, co-founder and CTO of Mindus.

Mindus shares the Eclipse Foundation’s belief that technology, and their tools, platforms, and more are driven by sharing knowledge and interactions through an open, powerful and loyal community.

About Eclipse

Eclipse is an open source community, whose projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the life-cycle. A large, vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups, universities and research institutions and individuals extend, complement and support the Eclipse Platform.

The Eclipse Foundation is a not-for-profit, member supported corporation that hosts the Eclipse projects. Full details of Eclipse and the Eclipse Foundation are available at

About Mindus

Mindus was founded 2015 and is based in Monaco.

Behind iizi is 10 years of R&D to simplify and rethink code. All for the well-being of developers.

“We take care of it all: the platform, the server, the hosting, the maintenance and the deployment; even the monetizing, with its disrupting redistribution of royalties to coders” says Nathalie Mindus, co-founder and CEO of Mindus.

Web Summit started as a simple idea in 2010: Let's connect the technology community with all industries, both old and new. It seemed to resonate. Web Summit has grown to become the "largest technology conference in the world". No conference has ever grown so large so fast.
