Mobile App Development: How to Decide on Hybrid vs. Native

Earlier this week I partnered with Kelley Ricker (my colleague at GrapeCity and the developer relations expert for Xuni native mobile controls) to conduct a webinar on the advantages and shortfalls of hybrid and native mobile app. He also posted this blog over at GoXuni.com, and I thought the Wijmo crowd would be interested, as well.

Webcast: How to Decide on Hybrid vs. Native

Mobile App Development is a huge opportunity for all developers, but language and platform differences can make it difficult to know where to start. Does it make sense to invest time and resources to develop native apps that are specialized for a particular platform or are you better served by creating a web app that can be used more generically across multiple platforms? Here, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages to each approach, as well as demonstrate a potential real-world application using each scenario. We guide you through building the same application using both Objective-C and pure JavaScript to highlight the similarities, differences, and benefits of each approach.

Workflow for Sharing Data Sets

With ActiveReports Server and ActiveReports 10 Professional Edition, you can share data sets on the server for improved data governance and reusability. We've talked a little about who might want to do this and why. Now we'll talk about how.

Models vs. Shared Data Sets

ActiveReports Server now supports two methods for reports to access data: Shared Data Sets and Data Models. The obvious question then is which should you use? To answer that question, we need to understand what types of reports you are serving up using ActiveReports Server.

Shared Data Sets: Why Should You Care?

Not everyone will find the shared data sets feature useful, but for those who do, it is huge. If you use ActiveReports Server to deliver Page or RDL reports created using ActiveReports, you can share data source and data set definitions on the server.

SpreadJS and Viewports

A viewport in SpreadJS is the visible area of the sheet (excluding headers, the tab strip, and the scroll bar). You may want to know the visible area of the widget if you plan to display a floating object based on which rows are visible or want to save or load data based on the visible area. This information may also be useful if the user scrolls and changes the visible area.

ActiveReports 10 - What's the Big Deal?

Last week we rolled out ActiveReports 10. This is a major version release which brings a lot of new features for our developer audience as well as our end users. The developer version of ActiveReports gets a new Tablix data region to enable complex cross-tab visualizations, a new DOCX rendering extension to export reports using the Open Office Document format, Stylesheets and other features and enhancements to make the life of a developer easier. Apart from the new look, the Server gets more control and data governance features for use with reports that developers design.
