Two level applications for android

Dear All,

Is it possible to create two level applications for android?

Found past link to discourage ...

You technically can write two-level applications on Android. However, we discourage it and it's mostly undocumented.

Thank you very much for your reply,

kindly , Let me allow raise these questions

If I create multi-level application for android and windows, would it be an issue to generate tables and work with cspro databases and text databases.

Further if possible could you explain some interesting points to get to know why you discourage two level or multi level applications please?


Thank you again

Yes, you will be able to generate tables and work with DAT and CSDB files.

The reason we discourage two-level applications is that they're unintuitive (work differently than single-level applications), undocumented, and we don't actively support them. There are organizations that use them, but they have been using them for many years. If you decide to make a single application with two-level applications you'll spend a great deal of your time debugging and trying to understand the behavior. I believe your time would be better spend designing your application to be single level.
