Information about Mobile Infraestucture Develpoment Tools

Hi,

I need to know if its possible to use another tool for Mobile Infraestructure solution development , i read about the MDK but it only shows a plugin for Eclipse.

What would be the procedure for use Code Warrior or Satellite Forms, i don´t know if its possible to use the same MDK or need something else...

Another question.... is there a way to "export" an Iview application developed for Portal to Mobile Infraestructure without programming everything?

I hope somebody could help my with this questions...

    Hello all!

    (1) Integrated Development Environment

    -


    For MI development only the Eclipse-based Mobile Development Kit Plugin is offered from SAP. Of course you can use any IDE you like, you just have some lack of convenience, because you will have to do the following things manually:

    - define project structure

    - define build structure

    - define launch and debug configurations

    - define debug configuration

    Additionally there is

    - no "built-in" MDK documentation (but Javadoc can be included)

    - no convenience tools like start/stop MI client and so on

    (2) iViews/BSP > MI

    -


    As the portal world and the MI world are totally different from each other, there is no way to effetively reuse code from one another. The same fact applies to applications which have been developed with BSPs.

    Best regards,

    Tim

    Hello,

    I seriously doubt that you could use another IDE except Eclipse. If you did so, it would be very difficult, as you would have to repeat a lot of development SAP has already done.

    You cannot bring an iView into the MDK. It will not compile. The APIs are totally different. Not only that, most iViews have extensive tags that are not supported in the MDK. If you tried to bring the two together, it will be so difficult as to not be worth the trouble.

    Sorry.

    Bill
