    Hello,

    We've developed a Kendo UI Mobile app that currently runs on IOS (Safari) and Android(Chrome).  It is using ASP.Net MVC4 to generate the mobile HTML5 views from the IIS web server.

    We want to package this within Icenium, but want to make sure this is a supported environment, namely using MVC4 to generate the views.

    We also will need to support intermittent disconnected access.  If disconnected, then we would need to get the view data from local storage (which we assume Icenium supports via Cordova).  Then using the Kendo UI Mobile framework, generate the views from locally deployed view UI/logic and/or from view UI/logic downloaded from the server when connected.

    Does this sound like a scenario that Icenium will support without too much headache?

    Thanks...Bob Baldwin

    Nevermind on the MVC4 integration part of this question.

    We now understand that Icenium/Kendo UI Mobile based apps retrieves/updates data and views thru jquery based web services like ASP.Net Web Api.  We cannot expect Icenium to support HTML forms for submission.  Instead we will do restful service based get, put, post, etc. for retrieval and updates.

    We still want to amke sure we can do the intermittent office access.

    Thanks...Bob Baldwin

    Hello Bob,

    The offline scenario you are describing is possible with Icenium. You can use online/offline events to trigger your custom logic and load the appropriate views. Regarding the offline data storage you can use either local storage or WebSQL depending on your scenario.


    Hope this helps,

    Hi Stefan/Telerik Team,

    I know this is a bit dated, but I want to follow-up on Bob's original question and ask if Icenium supports using ASP.NET MVC for view generation for the native mobile apps. In essence, can any work I've done developing the mobile app using MVC be easily ported to work in Icenium? If not, what would be involved in making it port across?

    Thanks,
    Manny.

    Hi Manny,

    Bob basically answers his (and partly yours) question in his second post. You can find additional information in these links:
