Overview of Siebel Handheld Client Application Configuration

The following provides an overview of the configuration process of the Handheld client. Complete the following steps to configure your handheld client application.

To configure the Siebel Handheld client

  1. Define the user functionality.

    Determine which user interface elements (such as screens, views, toolbars, applets, find, and help) will be necessary for your Siebel Handheld Client end users. For more information, see About Defining User Functionality in Siebel Handheld.

  2. Configure the Siebel Handheld Client user interface.

    The process for configuring user interface elements in the Siebel Handheld Client is the same as that for other Siebel clients. For more information, see Configuring User Interface Elements in Siebel Handheld and Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

  3. Identify all eScript or VB script.

    Siebel Handheld applications do not currently support scripting, including eScript or VB script. Scripting used in your Siebel application may conflict with your Siebel Handheld application configuration.

  4. Compile the new configuration.

    For more information, see Compiling the Siebel Handheld Application.

  5. Test the new configuration.

    Test the configuration, repeating the previous steps, to address any configuration errors.

After completing the Siebel Handheld Client configuration, you are ready to install it on the handheld devices. To install the Siebel Handheld configuration on a handheld device, see the instructions in Installing the Siebel Handheld Application.
