Access Webdynpro Application on Mobile

Hi Friends,

I have created an application web dynpro for ABAP . I am trying to open the application on my mobile with url. The application is opening properly but only for first view . On clicking buttons and links it does not fetches the data nor moves to the other view. It remains stuck in the first page only.

Friends please help .

Thanks

Nitesh.

    Mobile rendering for Web Dynpro ABAP is not supported. For a list of supported Operating Systems and Browsers, please refer to the PAM (Platform Availability Matrix).

      Hence, the lack of support.

      Web Dynpro loads the initial page much like a tradiation Web Page. But on events, the changes are made to the page using a delta mechanism. In 7.0 we use a hidden frame (and in 7.01 and higher we use AJAX) to call back to the server with the event. Then only the changes to the UI are rendered and sent back to the client. The changes are then injected into the page using JavaScript (DOM Infusion). This creates the flicker free effect, reduces network bandwidth and client/server rendering time. However this is probably where you are running into problems with the mobile rendering device - something isn't supported in the JavaScript that is supported on the full client browser. Even if you got past this problem, there would be other problems with more complex UI elements.

      Web Dynpro for Java uses a reduced UI element set and a separate rendering engine when creating mobile applications. It would be technically possible ot port this mobile rendering engine to WDA, but so for there hasn't been strong customer interest in the technology within WDJ - so management hasn't wanted to make the investment in WDA fearing similar weak customer interest.
