Method and System for Connecting Multiple Back-end Services

Disclosed is a method and system for connecting multiple back-end services by a mobile server that uses an adapter. The back-end services may include one or more of, but not limited to, database hosts, application servers, database servers, cloud appliances, mainframes and web services. The method and system includes dynamically changing a value of a user-defined configuration property in the mobile server configuration file based on user operation on a mobile device.

In accordance with the method and system, configuration of a mobile server is defined in a file in the form of key-value pairs. The file is a server configuration file and each key-value pair within the file is a configuration property. An adapter includes the

configuration property. The adapter may be a mobile middle-ware adapter Extensible

Markup Language (XML) file which may be a combination of an XML file and a JavaScript* file. As value of the user-defined configuration property in the mobile server configuration file changes dynamically, the changed value may be read on the mobile middle-ware adapter XML file. Any configuration property defined in the server

configuration file may be referenced from the mobile middle-ware adapter XML file. For example, if there is the configuration property "abc.jazz.repository" defined in the server configuration file, then the adapter of the file may be referred as ${abc.jazz.repository}.
