Customizing Inventory Manager 4.0 mobile application

Hi,

I need to make some customization on Inventory manager 4.0 mobile application. For this I need to know the following:

  • Do I need to customize the java source code of the application in order to adapt the mobile application to my business process, like for example: Add fields, Add actions, etc?  or just extending java classes and do modification on the IM Agentry Application is enough to do the customization?
  • If I need to include a complete new screen on the mobile application, which is a complex customization. Will I need to ask for this java source code to the sale representative in order to make the customization?


This questions were raised on this post   and as I also read Migrating from SAP IM 3.2 to SAP IM 4.0  I found out the java source code must be requested to SAP because on this version is not available to download from marketplace. But I really want to know if I need to do this or not, I'm not very clear about this. It make sense what Former Member wrote in one of his answers, I don't want to modify the base java classes... I just want add functionality /fields to what is already develop on IM 4.0, but on the other hand, If I want to add a field to MDO, maybe I will need to change the stepHandler class so... I guess that is why @Jason Latko confirmed that I need those file... and therefore I need to request to SAP in order to get it and make the customization possible... But I'm not really sure... so at that point I got so confused that I realize I need to ask about this on another thread.

Please help me...

Best Regards,

MC

    Adding \ Editing Screens, working on Action, Rules, and anything else on the Agentry Application doesn't need the Java Source code.

    When you add new fields and need data from SAP, or changing adding new fields to transactions, or new transactions.  This is when you will need to make Java Changes.  While the Java Source isn't need for extending the Java Classes and the JavaDocs are provided.  They do help.

    Mariana,

    I would suggest requesting the java source code if you plan on making any java customizations.  It would be very difficult if not impossible to extend the existing classes without being able to see the original source.
