I'm an Alpha Anywhere developer and have a requirement to access stored files (mainly PDF) on my server. I have successfully built a test App that can access a PDF file on a pubic server and load it on an iPad using the PhoneGap Document Handler . I'm just not sure how I can access files on a secured server without opening up access to the public. Ideally what I want to do is have a list of available files that the user has rights to view and then have a download to device button, once downloaded the button changes to view document. Every time the App syncs to the server it checks the document date/time and compares with the document date/time that has been downloaded; if they differ then the App has a warning that the document is old and needs to be downloaded again.
This may be more an Alpha question but I thought I would ask in this forum as it is using PhoneGap for some of the smarts.
PS. I cannot see PhoneGap Community... ?
I'm not familiar with Alpha Anywhere in any sense, but I'm assuming it's providing a lot of the logic for the app? In which case, I'd check with their support first, since they may have specific mechanisms in place to do what you need.
