Data Offline and Sync – Using Mobile Cloud Service Tutorial


Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS) provides the Sync Client SDK and its supporting Data Offline API for caching MCS custom and REST resources in an efficient, uniform and transparent way. The Sync Client SDK, along with the Storage SDK, also provides support for caching storage objects.

As a mobile app developer, you can leverage the Sync Client SDK technologies to do the following:

· Enable the user to continue to use the mobile app to perform critical tasks even when offline.

· Minimize the unnecessary retrieval of static data when the device is online, thus increasing performance and customer satisfaction.

What is Data Offline and Sync?

When developing client apps, you, as a mobile app developer, might often take these goals into consideration:

· Enable updates to app data on mobile devices when connectivity is intermittent or non-existent.

· Improve performance by minimizing the amount of calls and data transported over the wire.

The iOS, Android, and Windows MCS SDKs include the Sync Client SDK. The Sync Client SDK, with its data caching, support for offline operations, and automated synchronization, enables you to achieve these goals when you access custom API resources through the Sync Client SDK and storage objects through the Storage SDK. In addition, through declarative policies, you can design caching and synchronization policies for your custom APIs that apply across your apps, and can be adjusted without having to modify code.
