We are going to develop a simple app with Xamarin that will read data from an MV file and display it on a mobile device. This app can run in IOS and Android.
We are going to make the connection in two different ways:
- Using a REST WEB SERVICE that will receive the app requests, using Linkar we will make requests to the MV database and send back the data obtained to the mobile device (you can read the HowTo on creating web services with Linkar in https://www.kosday.com/blog/how-to-web-service-with-linkar)
- Using a DIRECT CONNECTION with the Linkar Server. The mobile device will connect directly with Linkar Server. No need to use a Web Service.
