In this installment, we will be accessing the RESTful web services we created in the previous installment from an iPhone App. For the App, we will take an example app from the book “iPhone SDK Development” by The Pragmatic Programmers”, available at Amazon.com:
Note that the same code we will be providing below would also be used for an iPod Touch or an iPad App.
In this installment we take a look at some of the types of application integration that you may need to do, and how we provide the Unlock Codes for these.
There are two ways to do updates. If you are using a mapped view of a MultiValue file, and make changes to the DataTable objects in the DataSet that we return when using the FWDataAdapter to “Fill” the DataSet, then you can use the FWDataAdapter Update method to automatically do this update using optimistic locking. For those who want more granular control, and who want to do edit checks and update multiple MultiValue files, we’ll also look at a very simple stored procedure for updating a single value.
In our previous installment we looked at the Unlock Codes for MultiValue Mobile Computing.
In this installment we are going to look at how you can integrate your MultiValue data and logic with Cloud Computing platforms.
In this installment, we show you how easy it is to create a Silverlight application that leverages the Web Services layer we built on top of the DAL that we built. This allows us to build out any .NET application type to use the data from our MultiValue system.
We also have a video that demonstrates this at:
According to Gartner and other analysts, the number of smartphone and other mobile computing devices will soon exceed desktop and notebook systems. At times it feels like we are already there.
The power, versatility and consumer acceptance of mobile devices is such that you ignore them at your peril.
In this installment, we will look at the Unlock Codes that FusionWare provides that enable you to extend your reach to mobile devices.
