Function rules in offline mode

Suggest edit Updated on November 9, 2021

You use function rules in online-only applications to define Java methods that run when a function rule is processed. When you develop an application that users can access with an offline-enabled mobile app, the mobile app uses JavaScript-based equivalents of Java-based utility function rules, provided that such equivalents exist.

The function rule logic of JavaScript is equivalent to the logic of the Java version of the utility function rule. However, not all functions that are available in Java are available by default in JavaScript.

Supported JavaScript functions in offline mode

Offline-enabled mobile apps support a specific set of JavaScript functions that are equivalent to predefined Java utility functions.

The following table lists the JavaScript functions that are supported in offline-enabled mobile apps, along with the corresponding libraries.
