Scan bar code functionality with SAP Custom FIORI App

Hi,

We have developed one SAP Custom Fiori app (WEB App). Here we have provided Scan functionality (Native features of the Mobile device through camera) as this web app running within SAP FIORI Client to achieve the Scan Bar Code functionality. The Scan functionality is working fine but takes 8-10 seconds to scan the Bar Code, as it should take less time.

As of now we have tested this app with IPAD as well as IOS mobile device.

Kindly help with the solution for this. And please let me know why it takes more time to scan.

Quick reply should be highly appreciated!

Regards,

Amit Anand

    Hi Amit,

    Are you using the default scanner plugin from the Fiori Client or have you chosen to use some other plugin via a custom Fiori Client build?

    Hi,

    I have used the below method provided by SAPUI5, As while calling this method from the sap fiori app, internally cordova bar code plug-ins getting called as in SAP FIORI Client we have cordova plug-ins.

    Hi Amit,

    We were working on some applications for logistics that required bar code scanning over the summer and we found that there were some deficiencies in the plugin that was used. I had made some adjustments for performance on the plugin code specifically for iOS to allow better recognition on bar codes as well as some changes to avoid the plugin causing the application to crash. I forked some version of plugin SAP chose to use in the Fiori Client here: Github Repo which you can see as a reference. I found out in the last couple of days that the SAP folks have taken some of the recommendations for performance and incorporated it into their plugin as of the latest SP. Depending upon which SP you are on and what original forked version SAP had used you may have some issues with both performance and scan recognition.
