The MDX Toolkit supports Apple App Store deployment by including the Worx SDK. When you install the MDX Toolkit, the Worx framework files also install and appear in the MDX SDK folders on your computer in the tool and data directories. The MDX SDK folders are required for the integration of wrapped iOS mobile apps with Citrix Worx. For example, third-party Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) can use the MDX Toolkit to enable their apps with Worx capabilities and deploy them directly from the Apple App Store. They can publish iOS apps that include the Worx framework in the Apple App Store and the Citrix App Gallery. After users install these apps on their devices, IT administrators can manage the apps in XenMobile App Edition.
When you send the files that include the Worx SDK to Citrix for approval, you can then upload the app to the Apple App store and send the URL to Citrix. The app is updated with the final app URL and is added to the app catalog hosted by the Citrix App Gallery.
When you run the MDX Toolkit, the inclusion of the Worx SDK allows for the choice of the following two modes:
Third-party developers can either develop two versions of an app, one that is unmanaged and one that is managed, or they can develop a single app for both independent use and for inclusion in Worx.
An app can silently transition to managed mode if all of the following conditions are met:
