Testing the Siebel Handheld Application
Before deploying your application to your users, be sure to thoroughly test the application by synchronizing with a handheld device.
To test your Siebel Handheld application
- Download the configuration for your Siebel Handheld application to a handheld device so you can test the functionality and verify that you have the desired behavior.
- Check to see how much data is downloaded to your handheld device.
If too many records are downloaded, this increases the length of time it takes to synchronize the handheld device and slows down the application performance.
For more information about checking to see how much data is downloaded to your handheld device, see Monitoring Synchronization Sessions for Siebel Handheld Applications, including the procedure To monitor data download.
NOTE: You can also check the log file on the Siebel Server to see how many records are downloaded for each business component. However, you must turn on logging to capture this information in the log file. For more information about enabling logging for Direct Server Sync, see Configuring Logging Levels for Direct Server Synchronization.
