This topic describes the types of Siebel Web Clients. This term sometimes refers to all the browser-based clients and sometimes to one specific client type. The Siebel Web Server Extension is also discussed.
Siebel Web Client runs in a standard browser on the end user's client computer. The browser connects through a Web server to the Siebel Server, which executes business logic and accesses data from the Siebel Database. Only the user interface layer of the Siebel Business Applications architecture resides on the user's computer.
The Siebel Wireless Client 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 wireless device communicates with a wireless gateway server, which translates messages for display in a browser on the device.
Several different types of wireless browsers are supported. For a list of Siebel Business Applications that support wireless access, see Siebel Wireless Administration Guide. For a list of supported browsers, see Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms on Oracle Technology Network.
The Siebel Handheld Client is a streamlined version of the Mobile Web Client that runs on a handheld device. It includes only the functionality required by field technician end users. 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 supported third-party Web servers. It identifies requests for Siebel application data 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 can install and deploy multiple Language Packs on a single SWSE instance. The Siebel Server and the Web server do not need to be operated in the same language. However, the Siebel Server, the Web server, and all other server components must use the same character set. For details, see the Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using and see Siebel Global Deployment Guide.
