Role of Nanoflows and Microflows in Mendix Client-Side Operations and Database Interactions

Hey everyone! I've been exploring Mendix development and have a question about nanoflows and microflows. So, nanoflows are usually for client-side tasks when we don't need to talk to the server, right? And microflows handle things when we do need server interaction. But what if I need to fetch data from the database in a nanoflow? Does that make it behave like a microflow, or is there something different going on?

Each database interaction creates a separate database request if called from a Nanoflow in an online application. It is more efficient to do this from a microflow where possible in this case.


More details can be found in the Nanoflow documentation.


I hope this helps.
