Database is housed in a separate app

In "Developing OutSystems Mobile Apps course", the database is housed in a separate app. Can anyone briefly explain how this is beneficial? My guess is that this allows creation of different apps sharing the same database. Am I right? Thanks!

Solution

That's correct.

The concepts is "reuseable", so the database can be used by another apps that you build on Outsystems

Solution

Hi YS,


This is something considered best practices and is controlled by some rules. This is about 4 Layer Canvas and you can teaching more about this subject in this link:

Hope this can be usefull.


Best regards,
