Need help navigating Appcelerator’s mobile capabilities? We’re here to make sure you get the most out of Titanium, Arrow and the Platform. That’s why we’re continually expanding Appcelerator University as a learning resource to help you get moving quickly.
Relational databases like Microsoft SQL Server and MySQL don’t typically expose their data through REST or SOAP APIs, which means it can be quite difficult access when building mobile or web apps. Our latest featured video demonstrates how to use Arrow, part of the Appcelerator Platform, to create mobile-optimized APIs for SQL Server in minutes—without writing a single line of code.
To begin, create an Arrow project and install the MS SQL connector. As part of the connector install, you can have it automagically create APIs, generate all the documentation, and expose the models. You can then point-and-click to create custom APIs as needed, which even provides the code for you to drop into your app. See it in action below or sign up and give it a try yourself.
