Multiple modules on same phone?

Hi All,

New to the list and to commcare, as I’m sure will be evidenced by this newb
question: Wondering is it possible to have multiple modules on the same
phone?

The terminology is not always consistent so I’ll try to answer both
possible questions you’re asking.

On CommCare HQ the word “module” is typically used to refer to a set
of functionality in your app that deals with the same type of cases.
You can have as many modules as you want in an application, each one
can have a different case type, case list and details screen, and set
of forms.

“Module” is also sometimes used interchangeably with “app”. If this is
what you meant, then you can also have multiple versions on a phone on
J2ME. Just put the different install (jad and jar) files in different
folders on the SD card and you can open each application from within
its own folder. You cannot have multiple CommCare applications in
the same folder, nor can you have multiple applications on Android.

cheers,
