We haven an web application that is hosted on our web servers or at the customer own datacenter. This application is used often on tablets. Customers requested that we provide an windows 8 packaged version. that runs as a windows 8 application but not on the desktop or in ie10.
The packaging would be possible but we want to have the application loaded from the web site. This to prevent communications error due to mismatching api's
Provide an example project that loads a web site inside a windows 8 application context without opening the ie browser.
Allow the user to enter an adres were the server is hosted under settings or something like that. On android we have done this as one field where the base url is provided like [url removed, login to view]
If the adres is changed the application should reload the web context.
Our application uses phonegap, mgwt and gwt but if the example does not require this that is fine.
The exmaple should be runnable inside Visual Studio Expres 2012.
