Just wondering why Chapter 10, Core Data and the iPhone is marked as coming soon. I was under the impression that this framework will not be available for the iPhone - well its not in the latest SDK? Marcus is there something else I should be aware of?


BTW love the book so far, looking forward to more updates.

My guess is that right now 2.2, we know does not have Core Data. Honestly though, I don’t think it’s that far fetched to believe Apple will port it. Look at what is available now re: XML parsing or SQLite. The pieces are there, for the most part, to handle it, it’s just missing the tidy bow to wrap its implementation.

I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility that we will see Core Data on the iPhone, maybe firmware 3.0. OS X didn’t even have Core Data until Tiger. And Bindings didn’t exist until 10.3.

You are both correct in that we do not have a Core Data API yet. However the chapter (which will be showing up in the next couple of days) does illustrate a few ways to take advantage of Core Data in certain situations. Stay Tuned!

I thought I would update this topic with today’s news of iPhone OS 3.0 and the Core Data API. Will there be an addendum to your book, Marcus?

Hi Marcus!

I look forward to the complete book! As for the new iPhone Core Data APIs, I’d suggest a later version of the book.

If the current one completes as good as I think/hope, I’ll buy the next one too.

Cheers, Knut

Yes, we are pulling back the iPhone chapter for an update based on the 3.0 news. Exciting times :)
