SMP3.0 what is MAF used for

Hello Friends,

I understand in SMP 3.0,you have the capability to do Native development(Odata SDK) and Hybrid html5 development using cordova.Both these approaches consume Odata services.

so what is the significance of MAF ????.

regards

Kaushik

    When developers consequently use MAF, they can save coding effort and get a much more consistent UI experience.

    e.g.

    • Translation options are built into the UI parts
    • The logon manager has a vast amount of features that help a lot (as JK already described)
    • You can configure and extend your application by changing a config file.
    • If using SMP you can even update the config file from the server without the need to redeploy a new native application
    • ...

    Comparing to the SMP Hybrid SDK approach, you do get with MAF a fairly configurable native application with all of the benefits that native brings you. So you would most likely use it for more complex application, maybe partners to build apps they can resell and reconfigure.

    Cheers,

    Dirk

    Hi Kaushik,

    MAF Logon is one of the commonly used (Reusable) component.

    • It's a part of MAF (Mobile Application Framework).
    • It provides easy integration for apps that use Logon UI behavior. e.g. On-boarding users onto SMP
    • To use this component, there are set of libraries and resources have to be imported into the eclipse. These required files are available under SMP Mobile SDK path.(C:\SAP\MobileSDK3\NativeSDK)

    You can check this guide which tells how to integrate MAF Logon component into your android project:

    How To... Enable User On-boarding using MAF Logon (Android)

    Rgrds,

    JK
