SAPUI5 with Couch/PouchDB

Hi all, has anyone ever tried to make this SAPUI5 offline mobile application work with PouchDB (device db)? I am curious to see how the synch/replication features of PouchDB can be leveraged: efforts, complexity, etc when the updates, changes need to go to ECC or CRM.

I have actually come across to serveral different blogs on making it happen on device, but not so much on syncing it up the data from device to the backend i.e. ECC, CRM. This is the area that I am still not sure about as to what it would entail.

Any inputs on the pros and cons or anything using SAPUI5 with PouchDB are greatly appreciated

    I have worked on Offline Apps using PouchDB. The way how we updated the backend was a little different as we have a Sync button which will update the backend with the frontend data and pull any records from the backend.

    You can use HTML webworker to sync it with the database automatically when the user is online.

    The pros is that this is a free plugin which can be used in the app but the cons can be as this is a freeware, the support will not be there.

    You can use the standard SAP HCPms which comes with licensing.
