The mobile data model defines how mobile applications access data in your enterprise. The data model for SAP Mobile Platform 3.0 is OData. MBO Runtime 3.0 allows the deployment and management of mobile business object-based applications on SAP Mobile Platform 3.0.

Mobile business objects (MBOs) define the data model to be used by:

  • Native Object API applications
  • Hybrid apps based on HTML5 / JavaScript

OData applications using the messaging channel:

  • MBO Runtime also supports OData applications using the SAP Mobile Platform messaging channel (OData REST HTTP applications are not supported).
