iPads: Does MY_WDA works as usual in iPads?


We developed a custom web dynpro ABAP (WDA) app, say, MY_WDA, working well, but now our company gave iPads to some users, hence pls. suggest us

(Pls. note in MY_WDA we have different kind of UI elements, input fields, drop downs, Adobe Interactive Form, Buttons, Link to Action, table)

1) Does these users can launch & use the MY_WDA as usual on their iPads? or

2) Do I need to make any changes in MY_WDA so that it will be compatible to iPads

3) Does users has to change their iPads settings in their iPads?

4) Any other suggestions / tips?

Thank you

    Webdynpro ABAP is not responsive so the users experience will probably be a bit on the "bad" side.

    It should work, since Safari is webkit based, but don't expect them to like it much.

    I doubt the Adobe Forms will work though.

    For mobile devices SAPUI5 is the better (more complex) option.

    As a final tip, you really need to test it before telling your users they can use it. Only you will be able to evaluate if the experience is good enough and if it still achieves the business requirement.

    • You have to start by testing it yourself. You may be pleasantly surprised.

      If it isn't ok, you will probably have to tell users that they won't be able to use the application in their iPad.

      There isn't much you can do, since webdynpro abap was not built for tablet use.
