Extend runtime and OS

Jump to solution

Hello,

I was looking on product documentation for different platforms accepted to install the runtime, and i barely see windows and unix. Anyone knows if is there a runtime for iOS, Android or any other OS?

Thanks afterwards

You did not say what you were trying to do with these platforms.  However, in my opinion, the more appropriate use of a tablet or phone would be strictly for the user interface.  In this case, you would create web services on a non-mobile server (using, for example, Xcentrisity Business Information Server for extend).  Program the user interface using standard browser techniques, or a widget set particular to the mobile platform. 

extend's graphical interface is Windows-centric, and therefore not likely to move to iOS or Android very easily.

Hello,

Thanks for the answer Tom. We'll need it for a stand alone software for sales in the customer place, using an ipad. Via web is discarded.

Thanks

Steve, I am inferring from the question and follow-up that there is an expectation of using the GUI.  (Perhaps the tablet will be used in a character mode, but I have my doubts.)  Am I correct that the GUI only runs on Windows clients?  I know the application can be running on any supported platform, but the GUI is not hosted locally on the non-Windows platforms, only through the Acu client, correct?

If my assumptions are correct, then probably the best choice for this customer would be a Windows tablet, rather than iOS or Android.
