Title: Ask Reuben 132 - Starting GBC (part 1 of 3)
Post by: Reuben B. on July 28, 2022, 02:57:53 am
With the 4.00 release of Genero Enterprise, Universal Rendering became our standard user interface. We no longer have 4 different front-end renderings produced by 4 different products, Genero Desktop Client (GDC), Genero Browser Client (GBC), Genero Mobile for iOS (GMI), Genero Mobile for Android (GMA).  Instead we now have one front-end rendering to get an identical user interface across these GUI front-ends. This was achieved by utilising the Genero Browser Client (GBC) as our standard UI inside the different front-ends. We still have the different front-end products, but for the GDC/GMI/GMA instead of rendering using native widgets and libraries, you can think of these tools as effectively rendering a window with a large Web Component into which the GBC is being rendered.
This next series of articles is aimed at those developers who have not used the various iterations of the Genero Web Client / Genero Browser Client and for whom 4.00 and Universal Rendering is their first exposure to the Genero Browser Client.
In this first article I will make a series of statements and explain them, I think that will help your understanding of how everything fits together.  In the second article I will point out what differences to look out for in your rendered application, and in the third article I will expand on the concept of customization.
