Building an On Device Mobile App w/ Local DB that Syncs to a Server
By Carlos Chang-Oracle on Mar 24, 2014
How about building an on-device mobile app that retrieves data from a server, through a Web service, stores the data locally, and keep the source and client data in sync? And get that done today, for both iOS and Android. :-)
Wait, what? :-\
Here’s a great video by Steven Davelaar (Oracle A-Team) doing exactly that - a mobile app, storing data locally (SQLite database) and sync’ing to the server via SOAP. (REST/JSON also do-able) It uses a wizard style extension that they developed to quickly build such an ap. For iOS and Android, same code base using Java and HTML5.
This extension is currently available for JDeveloper, but it’s also being considered for an upcoming release of Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse.
After your done with the video, you can check out Steven's detailed blog on this topic here.
