** This class will not be supported in 2015.
All functionalities of AppsFramework are more improved, integrating with CAPH. Therefore Appsframework is not supported since 2015 Smart TV.
AppsFramework is used for creating web based applications for Samsung Smart TV allowing the developers to concentrate on the business logic and services. The AppsFramework provides high-level wrapper APIs that streamline application development while still providing a rich set of application features.
AppsFramework solves problems faced by devlopers devloping for previous versions of Smart TV when they had to use multiple complicated call sequences to manage:
- User input focus
- Showing and hiding each DIVs
- Event handlers using DTV-specified functionality
