Creating a mobile app for your existing Rollbase application is easy with JSDO integration between Rollbase and Telerik AppBuilder.
Thinking of creating a mobile app for your existing Rollbase application? Worried about business logic and data replication at both places?
Fear not—we support JSDO integration between Rollbase and Telerik AppBuilder, which helps you build hybrid mobile apps for your existing Rollbase application with data and business logic lying in Rollbase. It is very easy and just takes a few steps to get these two integrated.
There are two things to do, one on the Rollbase side and another on the AppBuilder side. Let’s see what they are.
After creating an application in Rollbase, go to “Setup Home.” Under “Application setup,” navigate to "Progress Data Catalog" and create a new catalog. Choose the objects you want to expose and save the catalog.
Once saved, you will get service URI and catalog URI. Just make a note of that, as we’ll be using them in the mobile application.
The catalog file is nothing but a JSON file that contains the schema for the objects you have chosen and the operations (create, update, read, delete operations) that can be invoked on those objects.
A detailed step-by-step guide to better understanding JSDO integration for Rollbase and AppBuilder can be found in this whitepaper.
