We have new tool from Oracle which can help to simplify offline logic implementation for JS apps. In this post I will describe how to use Oracle Offline Persistence Toolkit with Oracle JET. However Offline Persistence is not constrained by JET usage only, this toolkit is available on NPM and can be integrated with other JS solutions.
I should emphasise - offline toolkit primary role is to enable mobile hybrid apps to work offline. In my opinion, toolkit usage doesn't stop here. It can enable user to continue his work, when internet connection is available, but back-end server goes down. Technically user would remain online in this case, but in practice application will be broken - no response from back-end for REST calls. Offline persistence toolkit could help to solve such cases - user could continue working with local cache, until back-end is down.
If you want to learn how offline toolkit works and how to use its API, go to GitHub page - check readme, add it to your JET app and try to run/test. Hands-on is the best way to learn something new. Read the complete article here.
