How to Use SQL-Based Search for Data Objects in Backendless Console

As soon as you have data in persistent storage, the question of searching would be one of the first to come up. Indeed, how can you query the backend for data? We considered multiple options and elected to use the most popular one – SQL.

How to Create Data Tables, Columns and Relations by Importing CSV Files

Backendless can create tables when you store object hierarchies from a client application. Also, we described how to manually create data tables using Backendless Console.

How to Use Backendless REST Console to Fetch Your Data

One of the hidden gems packed with features is Backendless REST Console. It is a part of Backendless Console and is located in its own tab on the Data screen. The Console does exactly what it sounds like – lets you run REST requests against your data tables.

How to Load Data Objects From the Server With Sorting

In another Recipe article, we discussed how to load data from the Backendless mbaas server using paging. In fact, data paging is only one of the features available in the data loading API. In this post, we are going to show how to fetch data objects with sorting. The sorting option can be combined with…

How to Generate Client Code Based on Defined Tables

In this post, we continue our mission to build a restaurant to-go order app. So far we have put together UI mockups for the future Backendless application, and designed data schema for all the application’s data entities. At this point, we are very close to the coding part.

How to Load Related Data Objects – The ‘One-Step/Dynamic’ Approach

In another article, we described how to load complex data objects from the persistent storage using the “auto-load” technique.
