Can Backendless be called from straight Java? I am building a desktop app in Eclipse and saw that you recommended to another developer using Eclipse that they switch to Android Studio. I don’t see that Android Studio can build Java apps, so I am wondering if what I want to do is even possible. If it is, what IDE do you recommend to build a desktop Java app with Backendless?
Yes, you can. You may find it helpful to read our documentation for Backendless SDK for Android/Java API Documentation
What IDE is a matter of personal preference.
I use IntelliJ IDEA.
Thank you for the quick reply.
Do you build with Maven or Gradle?
What Java Build Tools use is a matter of personal preference.
I use Maven.
