Test webi report for Mobile (iPad) with Xcode in a Mac

Hi everyone,

I need to develop some reports which will be visualized in an iPad.

I'm using a VM with Mountain Lion + Xcode. I know that Xcode is widely used by Mac developers. What I'm trying to achieve is the following:

1) Develop some webi reports for mobile, using MicroCharts, Scorecards, etc.
2) Test reports visualization without using a real Ipad (we don't have any).

Of course, no. 2) is the real problem. I'm trying to accomplish this using Xcode, anyone know the way? As far as I cocern, what I need to do is to give Xcode a proper URL (open document of developed report). Am I getting close?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Pablo,

    You can down the SDK for the SAP BusinessObjects Mobile app from the SMP. You can then use Xcode to generate an .ipa file.

    Use the iOS simulator in Xcode to load the .ipa and then you will have the app installed.

    Connect to you BI server with the app.

    See here for info on using the iOS simulator
