There is no need for a chance to be given. Since Javaranch forum is based on JForum, you can easily build something for the mobile using JForum without anyone asking you to do something.
I really do not see the need for a Javaranch mobile app. I will never ever keep installing countless apps on my mobile phones while I can access them crystal clear through a browser on my mobile phone!

This assumes that the app would primarily be an app version the forums. Given that currently no design of any kind for an app exists, that may or may not be the case. If it is about the forums, then it would not be as simple as you make it out to be - our JForum version differs significantly from stock JForum. And since neither version has a REST API -a prerequisite for an app- the app couldn't be developed entirely removed from the Ranch team, as we'd take an interest in any API that gets potentially added to the forum software.

That is just unnecessary complication. Like Ulf mentions, REST WS has mostly replaced SOAP based services. If you are trying to build something new, stay away from SOAP. These days I simply hate to even support SOAP infrastructure.

I thought that Javaranch did not have REST -services and that it use SOAP services, so I thought SOAP services can be converted into REST services..
By the way, how can javaranch expose their data?
So Can I get database access?
