Hello folks,
I am trying to create simple mobile application through orchestrator for enquiring the address book information from JDEdwards, This is the requirement of the client
when they are away from the system (on field ) and wanted to fetch data of customer or wanted to see the user is database is active or not.

Please suggest which is the best/ easy way to create a Mobile Application and call the REST services through orchestrator ?

Thankyou in advance

There's no such thing as a best / easy way. The best way is a combination of what you want the application to do, what sort of devices are you going to be using, how are you going to deploy it etc. The easiest way will depend on the technical skills that you have available, how your AIS server is configured and how the REST API is published.

The simplest way is generally to publish a mobile friendly web application either built yourself or using some sort of low-code/no-code platform. The most important thing to remember is that you're exposing your JDE system to the outside world (which is not a friendly place) so be careful how you do it because every potential attack vector you add can increase your risk profile exponentially.

For simpler mobile apps, we tend to recommend SWIFT from Ephlux. There are some demos on youtube, but the nice thing about that product is that it can automatically create a full mobile app from an Orchestration automatically. I built an Inventory Transfer and PO Approval app in less than 10 minutes with that tool. As long as you have the Orchestration ready, it can read that and create/map all of the fields for you. We actually build an Address Book mobile app in our Orchestrator training classes and again it takes less than 10 minutes.

From a security perspective, it is also nice because all traffic can be routed through their cloud service which means you only need to allow traffic from a single ip/port which is much safer than opening your AIS server up to everyone.

We may use other tools (such as Oracle VBCS) for larger mobile apps with multiple data sources, workflows and other complex logic, but for applications like you are discussing we usually recommend SWIFT.
