    For Working offline - Which one to use -  local database caching or reliable messaging?

    betheflexcoder Community Member



      I am working on a mobile application with lcds where there is a feature to be implemented. The user can use the application in airplane mode and be able to automatically send requests to server when he comes online. After some research,  I found that I have to use a feature in the documentation called ocasionally conencted clients, which uses local database with dataservice.savecache() and offline adapter. I also found another feature called reliable messaging which takes care of sending the pending requests when the user comes online, but not sure if this feature supports offline mode for longer periods. The documentation mentioned that reliable messaging is only good for transient network disconnects, meaning disconenction for shorter time.


      Can anybody please confirm which is the right feature that best suits this requirement?
