In Part 2 of our series, we are going to continue design backend for our Social App. So, the task for today is to implement such parts as Likes and Comments. You will see how easily you can reach this by using Backendless.
There are a lot of social applications around the world, such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc. If we take a look under the hood, however, we can see they all share pretty standard features. For instance, we can’t imagine an app without the ability to establish relationships between users, or without “likes” and “comments”…
GraphQL is a powerful language that allows you to extract data from your backend via a single endpoint that can take complex queries and return data in a structure that is appropriate for the client. In this article, we will create a simple application to manage articles. For API, we will use the GraphQL implementation…
In order to discuss what API as a Service is, we must first understand what APIs and API Services (and microservices) are. In this article, we are going to explain these terms in the simplest form possible so that you can better understand how APIs fit into your business needs.
There are two types of custom (server-side) business logic supported by Backendless – timers and event handlers. In my previous posts have reviewed the entire process of developing, testing and deploying timers. Now I’m going to focus on event handlers.
Sometimes (or in some cases, every time) when you invoke a custom API Service, you may need additional information about the context from which the HTTP request was sent/received, such as user or device information. To collect that information, we provide a class called InvocationContext.
Today we’re going to take another look at data security configurations in Backendless. In this article, we will talk about how to restrict direct access to your data via API and only expose your custom API endpoints.
Have you ever wondered why is it often so tedious so make your simple Java app a web server, with the methods becoming the endpoints? You need to add libraries, write additional “web” wrappers, set up a server and a hosting, configure load balancing and much, much more.
Recently we published an article titled “How to Enable Push Notifications Using Backendless in a React Native App (Android)”. Now we are going to continue demonstrating how to enable push notifications, this time for iOS devices.
