In the developers guide is a note on page 1-4 saying that "ADF Model includes the local database".
This is not only confusing in my opinion, but also wrong. The model should be indicated as the interface (or glue) between the UI and Business Logic.
Page 1-6 contains a better definition of what the model is supposed to be.
Hi, Luc, good point. This is a poor explanation of the ADF Mobile architecture. It should say "ADF Model provides ability to connect to a local database." or something similar. The local database is accessible only by the application that creates it, so it could be considered to be part of the application. However, I agree that local DB should not be considered as part of the ADF Model. I have raised Doc Bug 14137760 for this issue.
