GeneXus X Evolution 3 adds the possibity to generate Offline Smart Devices applications in addition to Online Apps (that can already be developed with GeneXus X Evolution 2)
So one of the most requested features from our Corporate clients is arriving: Offline Smart Devices applications. This new feature solves common situations for apps in Points of Sales, Events apps or any scenarios of limited or no Internet connectivity. This feature allows applications to execute database transactions even if the device has not connectivity.
GeneXus X Evolution 3 introduces new generators to resolve these scenarios. As from GeneXus X Evolution 3 an application can run online, offline or in mixed way.
Generating an offline application involves creating a local database in the device and generating the corresponding programs in native code for each platform (Java for Android, Objective-C for iOS, etc) as stated in Smart Devices Offline Applications Generation.
Start by creating your first offline application now!
