Difference Between Hybrid app and Native app

Hi All,

I'm new to SAP Mobility, and I have just started exploring about it. I know you can develop apps in different ways using SUP. Now I read at many places that Hybrid App's cannot be a complete offline App at the same time it is stated that they can do synchronization by storing events in a queue.

Can some one tell me what this means? What is a complete offline app? why cant it be build as a Hybrid app?

Thanks and Regards,

Pratheek

Hi Pratkeek

Yes,

Hybrid App's cannot be a complete offline App. They can do synchronization by storing events in a queue.

Check this thread Native App vs Hybrid App.

HWC applications are meant only for developing small scale applications(like approval scenarios)  so they cannot be a complete offline app.

where Native applications are meant for Large scale applications.

 

SUP 2.2 version allows us to store data on device cache in HWC apps as shown in blog

Building Offline(Display Only) Hybrid Web Container Mobile Applications With Sybase Unwired Platform

For Caching refer SUP Caching By Example - Webinar Slides

and  MOB262: Build Synchronized Mobile Apps with the Sybase Unwired Platform

This may help you.
