The Conversation Manager (HttpConversation library) facilitates
sending and receiving HTTP requests and responses between an Android app and server, and is
built on top of the java.net.HttpURLConnection and

Beginning with OData SDK version 3.0 SP05, the Supportability library replaces the older
E2ETrace and Logger libraries for client logging and network tracing. We strongly recommend
you upgrade your applications from the older E2ETrace and Logger libraries to the current
Supportability library in all components. For backward compatibility, the older libraries

MAF reusable controls allow you to use native Android UI controls (such as buttons
and labels) that display a default SAP style, from a prebuilt library. You can skin these
components at runtime to match customer branding, without recompiling the source code. MAF
also contains a set of complex controls, such as the calendar, the tree view, and
locale-aware controls. These complex controls, which provide additional runtime skinning
capabilities, are built from the simple MAF controls.
The Extensibility Framework is an SDK for Android applications, providing to
developers the ability to add or replace screens or subviews, change navigation patters,
update the data model, add custom actions, and so on. You can use it when developing new
applications, but you can also extend existing applications with little effort; you need not
recompile and redistribute the apps.
