MobiForms Advanced Edition supports HTML5 Apps


Now supports the full development lifecycle of HTML5 apps

The latest version of MobiForms Advanced Edition (MAE) now supports full remote database synchronisation with HTML5 apps. MAE now supports the full development lifecycle of HTML5 apps and continues to support the creation of traditional Native apps for Windows Mobile, Android and Apple iOS. The MAE enables bi-directional data replication, sychronisation and offline buffering between just about any master back office database server or ERP package such as Oracle Apps, SAP, Navision, Dynamics and more, and any Native or HTML5 MobiForms client running on a host of platforms including Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod, and Android smartphones and tablets.

Supported back office database servers include Oracle, SQL Server, Access, Sybase, IBM DB2, SQLite, HSQLDB, Firebird and MySQL. The MAE exploits the latest mobile web technology including the Web Socket data protocol, Javascript and the presence of the SQLite database engine embedded as Web SQL in most modern mobile web browsers. It now provides all the tools necessary to support the full mobile development lifecycle for both Native and HTML5 database apps including: definition of database replication rules from the master database or ERP package; creation and definition of mobile users; building a seed mobile database based on a subset of the master database; creation of a mobile app using the seed mobile database; deployment of the mobile app using the seed mobile database natively or over the air via a web server in HTML5 mode; plus bi-directional data replication and status updates between the master database and the mobile web client database. <!–[endif]–>

The new MAE avoids the app approval process mandated by many sites such as the Apple App Store, which alone can take weeks, as well as supporting a corporate Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy. It also supports a corporate cloud hosting strategy.

MAE is available for a once-off licence fee without the need to join a developer programme, or to pay monthly subscription fees.
