Lots of good screenshots along the way and very easy to follow, even if you have minimal programming experience.

The only thing I find odd is that at the end they said to compile the application. Does the CoreData stuff need to be compiled? Cause they never did any code, and except for the CoreData stuff they just played with Bindings in Interface Builder, which requires no compilation (gotta love NIBs). 2005-05-09 6:43 am Yes, as there is no written code, there is nothing to compile – but you have to build the application. Because without, there would be no application bundle to double click. 2005-05-09 12:17 pm could I use Core Data as a means to manage my data in a web app? 2005-05-09 12:26 pm could I use Core Data as a means to manage my data in a web app? I haven’t got a clue. 🙁 2005-05-09 12:28 pm You may as well try to read this (linked from that same page) It has more info about the innerworkings of CoreData: http://www.cocoadevcentral.com/articles/000086.php 2005-05-09 5:06 pm I could not open it in firefox / mozilla… Do i need Safari for this? 2005-05-10 2:40 am Cocoadevcentral? It works with firefox, opera and safari as far as I’ve tested.
