SAP Smart Forms and OData

Heya

I am currently evaluating how to trigger Fax messages from a mobile device.

The Fax is supposed to be in a standard format where the user can add text. So a Form template would be suitable.

We have in our hands SAP Smart Forms and Adobe Document Service. And AFAIK I can create templates with both.

As the App is HCPms based I'd like to use an OData service to send the Form data from the device to the backend.

If I am not wrong - a Smart Form is an RFC FM so it should be easy to write an OData service triggering this RFC,right?

How about the Adobe case?

[Edit] talking about Smart Forms I am not speaking about the UI5 lib. I refer to this:

Hi,

both Smart Forms and SAP IFbA ("Adobe forms") employ an ABAP API which is a (generated) function module. These function modules are not RFC-enabled, though - they are to be called locally in the system by the application program that wants to create template-based output.

Regards,

Alex

And would you recon that you can RFC enable the function module?

I read an other post where @naveenraj.a apparently did the same: here
