1. In regard to sending push notifications, you can do this programmatically using the Telerik Platform REST API
, or .NET SDK
. You may also want to read the documentation article about the server push notifications configuration in regard to security
2. My understanding is that you would like to read data from an SQL database. Usually you need to expose the SQL database via secure web services and use them to access the data either from the mobile app or from a server application.
You can use the integrated solution in Telerik Platform for exposing SQL data by installing a Data Connector in your infrastructure. After that you can quickly expose the database tables and stored procedures through HTTP endpoints. You can use Data Connectors with the Telerik Platform Enterprise subscription.
Another approach might be to build your own web services (for example, WebAPI for .NET or Spring for Java) that are able to expose the data to the mobile app via web/REST services interface.
On a side note, I am not familiar with the requirements of your app but also an appropriate idea might be to make a server application that reads from the database and sends a notification via the notifications API of Telerik Platform.
