StrongLoop Announces LoopBack Android SDK

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

StrongLoop recently announced the release of the Android SDK for LoopBack, an open-source, Node-built backend that allows Android apps to connect with enterprise and cloud data. Android developers looking for another way to access data might want to take a look. According to StrongLoop:

The Android SDK provides simple API calls that enable your Android app to access a LoopBack server application.  It enables you to interact with your models and data sources in a comfortable, first-class, native manner instead of using the clunky AsyncHttpClient, JSONObject, and similar interfaces.
