Building services with 4D Mobile, Alex Heilmann, Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative
Rightly enough, Wakanda is usually marketed as an “app factory”, bundled as a full stack framework in order to develop web applications. But if you single out the Wakanda server from that bundle and look at its extensive API, you can start seeing Wakanda as a “services factory”.
Coupling 4D and Wakanda via the 4D mobile extension opens up a wide field of solutions to complement 4D in order to run background operations: daily reports, deleting old records, sending emails, etc.
You can already achieve the same with v16 and its messaging system. But how do you do it if you can’t or don’t want to use 4D to create services? The concept presented is merely an alternative to that messaging system. There will be a small demo which will be available on bitbucket.
