Question related to Persistence

[ Edited ]



I am a newbie to BB development. I had a look at the Webworks API. I was looking for some ability to persist data in the BB Enterprise Server. Is this possible. Like Datastore API in Google App Engine. If this is not supported what is the alternative solution for Blackberry Webworks Application wanting to have a Database backend.

Re: Question related to Persistence


If you're looking for a solution that has data stored in the device Webworks has:


- HTML5 Database (https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/apis/database.html)

- Local Storage (https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/apis/localstorage.html)


If you want an online store, I guess you can keep using App Engine / Database API buy building your own webservices / REST API.


Depending on what you're trying to archive, one of them should work for you.

Hope it helps,
