Siebel Wireless is a modified Siebel Web Client that runs on a mobile device. Users can view, edit, and create records in the Siebel database through a wireless connection between a mobile device and a Web server. An Internet-enabled mobile phone, personal digital assistant or other device communicates using wireless application protocol (WAP) to a wireless gateway server. The wireless gateway server translates HTTP messages to WAP. The Siebel interface is rendered on the mobile device using wireless markup language (WML). Specific XML- and HTTP-based wireless browsers are also supported. For a list of Siebel Business Applications that support wireless access, see the Siebel Wireless Administration Guide. For a list of supported wireless browsers, see System Requirements and Supported Platforms on Siebel SupportWeb.
The Siebel Handheld Client is a streamlined version of the Siebel Mobile Web Client. It includes only the functionality required by end users' field technicians. The Siebel Handheld Client supports the same data relationships, the same configuration in Siebel Tools, and much of the same functionality as the Siebel Mobile Web Client. Siebel Handheld runs on devices that support the Windows CE operating system.
The Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE) is a plug-in for third-party Web servers. It identifies requests for Siebel information coming from Web clients and flags these requests for routing to a Siebel Server. When information is sent from the Siebel Server back to the Web client, the SWSE helps complete the composition of the Web page for forwarding to the client.
You must also install all language packs installed on Siebel Servers on your Web servers. However, you do not need to install all language packs on all Web servers. If you do not, you must provide a way to route user requests to Web servers that have the correct language support.
