    hello sujesh,

    do you mean one online repository for all you devices?

    if that's what you mean, MI server has a replicaDB of

    all the data for your devices.

    or do you mean, running the MI client in one PC and

    will be accessed by several clients thru network?

    MI framework is designed mainly for offline mobile

    applications and could only be accessed on your


    if you want an online mobile application, perhaps you

    might consider using WD mobile UI framework to do that.

      Hi Sujesh,

      All that information is relative and dependent on the browser used (blackberry/PocketPc)..etc. but at the end of the day you are using a browser to access a web application so all your logic still resides on the web server and the UI displayed is what needs to be managed. Like I mentioned there are some controls not supported and it depends on the device, what kind of reporting do you need to do on a handheld? In the applications I have created I just had to be careful in selecting the columns I needed and sorting them appropriately so the person doesnt have to scroll much (most important/popular date displayed on the left columns). In summary no real constraints since the metadata generates the appropraite UI for the appropriate browser, so your data will always appear its a question of satisfy the end user.

      No prerequisites to use Mobile Web Dynpro except for the development environment(NWDS+J2EE).

      Hope this helps,
