Change log

Managed Windows Client SDK

Our managed portable library for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows Runtime Universal C# Client SDK makes it incredibly easy to use Mobile Services from your Windows applications. The Microsoft Azure Mobile Services SDK is available as a Nuget package or you can download the source using the instructions above. The managed portable library also supports the full .NET 4.5 platform.

Prerequisites

The SDK requires Visual Studio 2013.

Building and Referencing the SDK

The managed portable library solution includes a core portable assembly and platform-specific assemblies for each of the supported platforms: Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and .NET 4.5. The core portable platform project is Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile. The platform-specific assembly projects are named using a Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.Ext.<Platform> convention. The Windows Phone 8 platform also include a Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.UI.<Platform> project that contain UI components. To build the Managed Portable Libray:

  1. Open the sdk\Managed\Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.Managed.sln solution file in Visual Studio 2012.
  2. Press F6 to build the solution.

Running the Tests

The managed portable library Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.Managed.sln has a test application for each of the supported platforms: Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and .NET 4.5.

  1. Open the sdk\Managed\Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.Managed.sln solution file in Visual Studio 2012.
  2. Right-click on the test project for a given platform in the Solution Explorer and select Set as StartUp Project.
  3. Press F5 to run the application in debug mode.
  4. An application will appear with a prompt for a runtime Uri and Tags. You can safely ignore this prompt and just click the Start button.
  5. The test suite will run and display the results.

iOS Client SDK

Add a cloud backend to your iOS application in minutes with our iOS client SDK. You can download the iOS SDK directly or you can download the source code using the instructions above.

Prerequisites

The SDK requires XCode 4.6.3 or greater.

Building and Referencing the SDK

  1. Open the sdk\iOS\WindowsAzureMobileServices.xcodeproj file in XCode.
  2. Set the active scheme option to Framework\iOS Device.
  3. Build the project using Command-B. The WindowsAzureMobileServices.framework folder should be found in the build output folder under Products\<build configuration>-iphoneos.
  4. Drag and drop the WindowsAzureMobileServices.framework from a Finder window into the Frameworks folder of the Project Navigator panel of your iOS application XCode project.

Running the Tests

  1. Open the sdk\iOS\WindowsAzureMobileServices.xcodeproj file in XCode.
  2. Set the active scheme option to WindowsAzureMobileServices\* Simulator.
  3. Open the Test\WindowsAzureMobileServicesFunctionalTests.m file in the Project Navigator panel of XCode.
  4. In the settings.plist file, set TestAppUrl and TestAppApplicationKey to a valid URL and Application Key for a working Mobile Service.
  5. Run the tests using Command-U.

Android SDK

Microsoft Azure Mobile Services can be used with an Android-based device using our Android SDK. You can get the Android SDK in one of the following two ways or you can download the source code using the instructions above.

  1. For an Android studio project, include the line compile 'com.microsoft.azure:azure-mobile-services-android-sdk:2.0.3' in the dependencies section of build.gradle file of the app
  2. Eclipse users can download the Android SDK directly or can download the source code using the instructions above.

Prerequisites

The SDK requires Android Studio.

Building and Referencing the SDK

  1. Open the folder \azure-mobile-services\sdk\android using the option Open an existing Android Studio Project in Android Studio.
  2. Project should be built automatically, In case it does not build, Right click on sdk folder and select Make Module 'sdk'
  3. The file sdk-release.aar should be present at \azure-mobile-services\sdk\android\src\sdk\build\outputs\aar
  4. Rename the file sdk-release.aar to sdk-release.zip
  5. Extract the zip file, classes.jar should be present in the root folder.

Running the Tests

The SDK has a suite of unit tests that you can easily run.

  1. Open the folder \azure-mobile-services\sdk\android using the option Open an existing Android Studio Project in Android Studio.
  2. Project should be built automatically, In case it does not build, Right click on sdk folder and select Make Module 'sdk.testapp'
  3. Expand sdk.testapp and sub folder java
  4. Right click on com.microsoft.windowsazure.mobileservices.sdk.testapp, Select Run, Select Tests in com.microsoft.windowsazure.mobileservices.sdk.testapp (with Android tests icon)

JavaScript SDK

Our JavaScript SDK makes it easy to use our Microsoft Azure Mobile Services in a Windows 8 application or an HTML client. The Microsoft Azure Mobile Services for WinJS SDK is available as a Nuget package or you can download the source for both WinJS and HTML using the instructions above.

Prerequisites

The Microsoft Azure Mobile Services for WinJS SDK requires Windows 8.1 and Visual Studio 2013 Update 3.

Building and Referencing the SDK

  1. Install Node.js and grunt-cli (globally) for building in Visual Studio
  2. Install the Task Runner Explorer(https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/8e1b4368-4afb-467a-bc13-9650572db708) add on for VS 2013
  3. Open the sdk\JavaScript\Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.JS.sln file in Visual Studio.
  4. Right click on the gruntfile.js in the solution, and select Task Runner Explorer
  5. Run the default build option

Alternatively, you can use Grunt from the command line to build the project as well.

For WinJS Windows Store apps, copy the Generated/MobileServices[.min].js, Generated/MobileServices.DevIntellisense.js and Generated/MobileService.pri files into your WinJS project. For HTML applications, copy the Generated/MobileServices.Web[.min].js and the Generated/MobileServices.DevIntellisense.js files into your HTML\JavaScript project.

Running the Tests

To run the WinJS Windows Store test app:

  1. Open the sdk\JavaScript\Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.JS.sln file in Visual Studio.
  2. In the Solution Explorer, right-click on the Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.WinJS.Test project in the Solution Explorer and select Set as StartUp Project.
  3. Press F5 to run the application in debug mode.
  4. A Windows Store application will appear with a prompt for a Runtime Uri and Tags. You can safely ignore this prompt and just click the Start button.
  5. The test suite will run and display the results.

To run the HTML tests:

  1. Open the sdk\JavaScript\Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.JS.sln file in Visual Studio.
  2. In the Solution Explorer, select the Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Mobile.WinJS.Test project and right-click to select 'View in Browser'.
  3. The default browser will launch and run the test HTML application. Some tests may fail because due to an 'Unexpected connection failure'. This is because the test is configured to connect to a Mobile Service that does not exist. These failures can be ignored.
