Database, Tools and Programming Language:

 CouchBase Server (Database, Document storage).


 CouchBase Sync Gateway:
o Maintains up-to-date copies of documents where users need them. On mobile devices for instant
access and on servers in data centers for reasons such as synchronizing documents, sharing
documents, and loss-protection. Mobile apps create, update, and delete files locally, Sync Gateway
takes care of the rest.
o Provides access control, ensuring that users can only access documents to which they should have
access.
o Ensures that only relevant documents are synced. Sync Gateway accomplishes this by examining
document and applying business logic to decide whether to assign the documents to channels.
Access control and ensuring that only relevant documents are synced are achieved through the use
of channels and the sync function.
 C# Programming Language (Xamarin Studio):
o Cross Platform Client side application ( Mobile, Browser and Desktop Applciation).

Web Application and Database Model:

 Initial plan – Web Application, Sync Gateway and Database Server Single Hosting.
 Each Client Tier (Web, Mobile and Desktop) are Offline First approach on transaction that can function until

 One device can connect to one another thru wireless connection (WIFI) to update the Inventory records
without connection (Internet) and update later on the main database.
 One of the cool features of Couchbase Lite that hasn’t been featured much is an ability to do P2P replication
between two devices. Couchbase Lite is packaged with an extra component called Couchbase Lite Listener that
allows your application to accept HTTP connections from other devices running Couchbase Lite and sync data
with them.
