I have been reading about Core Data recently and I just got your Core Data book. I am still unsure of what direction to go with my present project. I am developing an application for the iphone/ipad that will use data coming from a rest style web service. I will not be doing caching locally at this stage so the app will call the web service each time it needs data.
I am now trying to decide between the following paths for designing my model classes:
1) Use a standard class (ex. Questionnaire) with a NSDictionary to hold an instances of my “model” class (ex. question)
2)Use Core Data without persistence using In Memory (data will be refreshed every time from the web service)
Eventually I will be caching some data locally in SQL Lite so I will probably use Core Data then, but I wonder if initially it is the correct choice for the data that won’t be persisted.
I will appreciate any advice,
Thank you in advance,
