IBM MobileFirst is a platform consisting of Eclipse and servers. They allow for advanced Hybrid applications utilizing IBM's services for a number of key back-end needs for mobile development.

You pick your application type (Hybrid, ios, Android, etc...) then start adding adapters to access server side information from JMS, JDBC, HTTP and other sources. You then create custom server-side Java code that can be used by MobileFirst adapters.Create, modify and test MobileFirst Java and JavaScript adapters. You can use JQuery Mobile, AngularJS and other javascript frameworks. It supports working with Apache Cordova as well so you can put together some pretty powerful mobile applications with mostly HTML5 and JavaScript. All their examples are documented and the code is in github
