Hi all,

I am still thinking in the lines of traditional AEM, where author enters the content, and after reviews/approval, it will be pushed to Publish.

And it is the Publish that serves data to the outside world.

This hold good for Mobile Web also.

But for Mobile Apps, we could push from Author to Mobile Apps. is it true? Probably we could push from Publish also.

What is the role of Publish server for AEM Mobile Apps?

Why is it a deviation for mobile apps?

Kindly send me a block diagram which shows author, publish, aem mobile, app store and mobile device.

Thanks,

Rama.

1. I'm not aware of a diagram that articulates this, i'll pass on the request
2. true, it is not used in a typical OnDemad app. However if your app plans to pull content directly from AEM at some point you will need one 
3. OnDemand hosted services is not an AEM instance/service and does not use the AEM Dispatcher, although being a SaaS likely has its own caching and load balancing 
4. AppStore host and distribute apps as there were provided by the app owner. Although the app once installed may pull in content the App in the App Store is a compiled binary that is eventually installed onto a device
5. ContentSync https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-2/develop/mobile-apps/contentsync.html is a framework to extract content from AEM. It is used by AEMMobile to export/etract content for use in mobile apps.
