Tutorial 5: Update the Offline App

If you have set the Start Mode to Offline and deploy the application in PowerServer Toolkit, the application will run as a local/offline app on the mobile device without needing any network connections, except for the first time when the configuration information needs to be downloaded from the PowerServer to the mobile device. In this case, the local/offline application will not be automatically updated, and you will need to call the APIs Appeon provides to upgrade the application.

PowerServer Mobile provides APIs to check and apply the updates for the local/offline application. For details on how to call these APIs, refer to the section called “of_checkupdate” in Workarounds & APIs Guide and the section called “of_applyupdate” in Workarounds & APIs Guide.

After getting the updates from PowerServer, you will need to restart the application to make the updates effective.
