Sybase Unwired Platform architecture
Creation of mobile apps
  • Data exchanges are modelled in a graphical user interface based on Eclipse.
  • User interfaces for simple HTML apps can be implemented using Rapid Application Development. These then run on the end devices within a hybrid web container app.
  • SDKs (software development kits) are available for developing native apps for various end device platforms. These run within the respective applications.

Use of backend services by end devices

  • The SUP functionality can be used on iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry devices.
  • Offline functionality in custom apps can be achieved on end devices by embedding the appropriate SUP code libraries.

Administering applications and users

  • Transmission security between the Sybase Unwired Server and the end devices is achieved through various methods such as SSL encryption and reverse proxies.
  • Access permissions for applications, data and users are managed on the Sybase Unwired Platform. Active Directory and SAP roles can also be integrated.
