Android development.

Postby paulammoun » Tue Dec 06, 2011 9:54 am

Hello all,
I am new to Servoy and trying to learn :)
I hope I am not asking a stupid question (This is by the way my specialty :) ).

So I have made few forms that runs well on my PC using web client.
I want to test them on the android device! What files should I copy to the device ? and What should be installed on the android ?
Thank you for your answers...

Hi Paul,

First let me say that there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers (I know I had my fair share of those :oops: ).
So keep your questions coming ;)

As for your Android question. You don't install anything on Android. Just point your Android webbrowser to your Servoy server and it will work the same way as with your desktop Web Client.
Servoy Web Client just runs on the server itself and in the browser you only get HTML and JavaScript. So this should work with any (mobile) browser.

Hello Again,
Thank you for your answer.
What I wanted to do is run the application on the device without being connected.
The device need to collect information on the go and then synchronize it with a sever later on.
It seems this is not possible with Servoy. Any suggestion ?

Thank again for your answers.

Hi Paul,

There is no native Servoy client for mobile (mostly due to the fact that there is no fully featured JVM on mobile devices if at all) so if you want to have an offline app that syncs later with Servoy server (like via the REST plugin) you would have to create one yourself.
You can use tools like Appcelerator Titanium for this. I know there are a few community members who have experience with this.

I have done a bit with Titanium - since it uses Javascript and a modified version of Eclipse like Servoy does, you would find a lot of familiarity with that environment.

Or you could obviously use our AppConKit, which allows you to build Android (and iOS) Apps directly with Servoy. No second environment, just a plugin to Servoy and you can get started. And you can even use the same programming you're already used from Servoy.
