Build Version breakdown
This is the version of the application that has been pushed up to the store. The controls any UI/UX that you see. The application creates the Lego pieces in order to display the information that the gateway sends it.
For example, the application would create a framework for displaying Opportunities. i.e. the module list, the record details, etc.
The Gateway is the medium between the application and the API. It interprets the API and delivers information to the Lego pieces of the application.
For example, it would deliver the search results of the Opportunities found to the list, the content of the record details.
The API is the foundation of what the gateway is able to retrieve. If the API has not made information available, the gateway is unable to deliver it to the app.
For example, the API made access points available to EDIT Opportunities in version 2.15. With the edit capability the API would handle the security access of the information (mandatory fields, read/write user restrictions, etc)
The Gateway is now able to retrieve and create groups of opportunity information. The App was then able to create an experience where the user is able to manipulate these groups of information
