Hi guys,

I'm a complete newbie in the field of iPhone development. I wonder if there's any way to develop an iPhone app using java (if so, which one and is it recommended to do so)?

Also, can anyone point at a site to start developing an app (either with obj-C or java)

My goal is to build an app that user can login using credentials and query a remote db.

thanks!!!

Hi Adrian,

no, you can't use Java to develop iOS applications. The book we're promoting here would be a great way for you to start
This might also be an interesting read for you: http://www.jeviathon.com/2011/01/why-i-prefer-ios-development-over.html

Apple's "Your first iOS application" might be a good start, too: http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/iphone/conceptual/iPhone101/Articles/00_Introduction.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40007514-CH1-SW1

Or the Stanford courses: http://www.stanford.edu/class/cs193p/cgi-bin/drupal/

Enjoy!

- Johannes

This answer is a bit outdated by now. There are several solutions:
Codename One (ours)
XMLVM
RoboVM
J2ObjC (mostly for libraries)
Avian

That doesn't include the HTML/JavaScript based solutions.
