This works well in the iPhone app for "South March Highlands Trails" I am developing that will require a lot of additional work before I can submit it for review at Apple.

1) An application server - WebLogic 12.1.1 (12c) in this case

3) A database - The Derby 10.8 instance shipped with JDK 7
4) Web content (html 5 pages, css, javascript - possibly JQuery)
5) Several installations of PhoneGap 2.5 (for iOS6.1.1, BB10 and Android 4.2 at least)
