Altova MobileTogether 8.0 – A Whole New Approach to Database Connectivity

BEVERLY, Mass., June 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Altova® ( announced the release of MobileTogether 8.0, its rapid application development platform for building enterprise solutions and native applications for iOS, Android and Windows. This latest release adds several exciting new features, including a whole new way to interact with relational databases, support for modularization, and more. The release of MobileTogether 8.0 coincides with the release of Altova RecordsManager, a new offering that gives developers a no-code option to build enterprise database applications.

Highlights of this release include:

  • A completely new approach to database connectivity including a new database wizard and hierarchical read/write support. Previously, working with backend data in relational databases required quite a bit of handwritten SQL work to perform commonly required tasks. MobileTogether 8.0 takes an entirely new approach and allows developers to effortlessly create a query that returns hierarchical data and then simply rewrite the data in hierarchical form. The new approach to working with hierarchical data in otherwise flat relational databases in MobileTogether will prove to be a huge time saver that will make application development much simpler.
  • Modularization. Version 8.0 introduces the ability to modularize the application design file so that multiple developers can work on the same project. It also adds the ability to reuse parts of projects in other projects.
    Modularization is also implemented through a new Modules pane, which automatically organizes large projects and helps developers find items more easily to immediately understand how and where each item is used. Elements that go together are grouped logically, making it easier to understand the whole project. Refactoring and modularization provide many benefits ranging from reducing development time and teamwork to supporting quick and flexible updates and maintenance.
  • Server libraries are a new MobileTogether design file type. When an application or solution uses a server library, the library can be swapped out at any time without the need to redeploy the application. This allows for much faster deployment of app updates and changes and eliminates the need to send apps back through the App Store approval process.
  • Starting with MobileTogether 8.0, when you open MobileTogether Designer, you’ll have the option to create a classic MobileTogether solution – or start with Altova Records Manager. RecordsManager has a visual interface to quickly create enterprise database applications for desktop and mobile users no coding necessary. One of the main advantages of RecordsManager is that developers do not need to create the database backend themselves. They focus on what they want to model and RecordsManager does the rest. It’s a huge time saver and makes it easy for system administrators or developers of any skill level to build efficient applications.
  • And much more
