I wrote my bachelor thesis work at SAP Hungary Kft., where I discovered the nowadays very current mobility topic.
During writing my thesis I dealt with the recently acquired Sybase company’s Sybase Unwired Platform, which is used to mobilize the enterprise information. The solution enables enterprise developers to simply and quickly build applications that connect business data to mobile workers on any device, at any time. These solutions are using open source and platform independent technologies; it means that the enterprises can count with them in long run.
My mobile device application was developed for field technicians to be able to view and edit work orders, confirm time and materials used, and fill out surveys related to the examined equipment on their mobile devices.
At the beginning of the realization I had to get acquainted with the platform itself. Because the Sybase Unwired Platform ensures the consistency of the business data among the mobile applications on the devices and the enterprise information system back-ends. For this purpose it uses different synchronization techniques.
To solve my task I used the Sybase WorkSpace toolkit to create the mobile business objects and deploy those objects to the Unwired Server, wherewith mobile device applications can be designed and developed. With Workflow Forms Editor I created the business logic and the screen designs for the application, and the navigation forms order. Finally, the application was deployed by generating code and run using a BlackBerry simulator, when I examined and tested the functionality of the Work Order application.
