System and Method for Maintaining Single Code Path for Storing Data in a Plurality of Storage Locations

Disclosed is a method and system for maintaining single code path for storing data in a plurality of storage locations. The plurality of storage locations includes local storage and server side storage.

In accordance with the method and system, a web application is used to access data associated with the web application from a storage location. For example, the web application may be a web based game that is running on a HypertText Markup Language 5 (HTML5) browser at a client side. The HTML5 web browser may send a

request to the server for storing data for the web application to one of the storage locations. For example, a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) Representational State Transfer (Rest) Application programming interface (API) request may be invoked by a JavaScript* (JS) game client to the server for storing data for the web application to one of the storage locations as illustrated in the Figure.

Figure

The web application store data is stored on a server side storage location using a code path dedicated for the server side location. The method and system enables the server to return a content type for the web application. For example, a variable indicating a request for locally stored game data is provided instead of returning the JS for storing the data on a local storage location. Subsequently, a browser at the client side accepts
