Let us understand some webOS-specific concepts.
Managing Web Apps
The webOS system provides the following app management services:
System and Application Manager (SAM) - Oversees the behavior of apps and manages each app throughout its lifecycle, including the installation, launch, termination, and removal of the app.
Web Application Manager (WAM) - Responsible for launching and managing web apps.
Packaging/Delivering Web Apps
In a webOS system, a web app can be packaged/delivered as follows:
Added in webOS image – The web app is built into the webOS image. This approach is used by platform developers to enhance the functionality of the platform. For details, see Built-in Web Apps.
Installed on webOS device – The web app is installed on the webOS target device. This approach helps 3rd party application developers to create web apps for webOS devices. For details, see Installable Web Apps
