The following example shows a WAP application with the Web items Generic Navigation Block, Table and Chart.
Web Item Paging
Since WAP devices have limited display and memory capabilities, Web items for a WAP application are automatically displayed over several pages, which are linked together via an automatically generated overview page.
In this overview page, the WAP application Web items are displayed as a list of links to separate WML pages.
For example, choose the Table Web item:
Display for the Table Web item
Table (1/3) means that the table content is too large to be displayed on a single page, and that this page is the first of three.
Navigation in the Table Web item
Use to scroll to the bottom of the page and choose the link [ >Continue...] to get to the next page...
... Or choose Menu...
... And use the table navigation links that are automatically added to the menu.
OLAP navigation with the Generic Navigation Block Web item
In the overview page, choose the Generic Navigation Block Web item:
Choose [Navigation] and click on Link.
Display for the Generic Navigation Block Web item
The letters next to the InfoObjects mean the following:
R = Rows
C = Columns
Indicate whether the InfoObject is displayed as a drilldown in rows or in columns. In this example, Order is drilled down in the rows [Order R]. The key figures are drilled down in columns [Key figures C].
Choose [Fiscal Year]] and click on Link.
Adding to the drilldown
Choose Drilldown: [in Rows] (Drilldown in rows), and click on Link.
[ Fiscal Year R] means that the fiscal year is drilled down in rows.
Choose [Order R] and click on Link.
Choosing a filter
Choose Filter: [Choose] and click on Link.
Choose the order number you want to add to the filter:
Select Choose to activate the filter.
The F (=Filter) in [Order RF] means filter values have been selected for the Order characteristic that is drilled down in rows.
Choose Table and click OK.
Here, you can see the result of the navigation steps (Add Drilldown and Filter) in the table.
Displaying the Chart Web item
In WAP devices, charts are displayed in the black and white (Wireless Bitmap (WBMP)) format.
In the overview screen, choose the Chart Web item and click on Link.
Here, you can see the result of the navigation steps (Add Drilldown and Filter) in the chart.
WAP applications with a WAP-enabled device
Here, you need a WAP-gateway and access via a telecom provider. The WAP-gateway must be in front of the firewall and it must have access to the BW system. Security settings (restrictions to a particular mobile phone) are dependent on the WAP server.
Using WAP emulators
You can use an emulator, such as the emulators for Openwave or Nokia, to quickly become familiar with mobile intelligence in PDA devices.
SAP Note 453142 provides additional information about how to download emulators from the Internet.
