Hi there,

It will be ideal if we can access the SQLite. Many existing systems are already running for many years. If the MobileTogether can also access SQLite, we could gradually convert the existing systems,with the latest data captured by our old systems. By running both system in parallel, accessing the same set of data, checking the system readiness will be much easier.

Currently we are issuing 800 - 1000 Delivery Orders each day, with the Delivery Orders uploaded to Andriod devices with a SQLite database. Customer endorsed the Delivery Order by signing on the device. Signatures are stored within the SQLite in BASE64 format.

Thanks.

Yes, we were working on SQLite support for a long time already. Probably in 1-2 months from now.

Hi,
I was very interested until I was told that the IDE is free and one only have to pay for the the server. Well... it has been haunting me for the past weeks, it is not the money issue. Many companies would prefer not to be connected to the Internet; that is the issue.

Currently, I am servicing a company that delivers their own products, approx. 1000 Delivery Orders each day. My accounting system will auto-plan the customers to be delivered and which products to be delivered, according to the customers requirements. Such info are downloaded into the Android devices (120 pcs of them) which the drivers took along to deliver the goods. The customers endorsed their signature on the SAMSUNG device, and the drivers bring back the devices, to be uploaded to our Linux Server + Postgresql 9.3. The data uploaded are validated and check for discrepancies. The system then automatically generated the Delivery Order PDF and automatically locate the email addresses; sending the PDF to them. All these deliveries are self generated into Invoices fortnightly, printing out to laser machines. Staffs simply transfers them to a collating machine which it separate and fold the invoices (different number of pages) and insert them into envelopes for mailing purpose.

Finally, my question: how am I able to generate local native apps for android devices reading SQLITE?

Thanks.

Hi Kevin,

you can easily build the system you described with MobileTogether - much easier than your current implementation, because... you don't need SQLite on Android devices.

MobileTogether supports three methods of server connection:
- Always: this is when connection to server is required
- Never: this is when an app is completely standalone and does not need any data from Internet
- On Demand: this is when an app works standalone, except for those moments when it needs to exchange data with server

The On Demand corresponds exactly to your needs. When devices are at home - you run a single command to transfer data from server to the internal XML trees, which you flag as "persistent". When devices are used by drivers, they do not need any Internet connection, because they visualize and use data saved in persistent trees. They would save customer's signatures as Base64 in the same persistent trees. When back home - any data like signatures will be transferred again by a single command to the server.
