Setting Up Siebel Handheld Application Installation on a CompactFlash Card

The default, when installing Siebel Handheld applications, is to install both the Handheld application and the Siebel Handheld application database into random access memory (RAM) on the device. In most instances, there is sufficient available memory, and users are satisfied with the Handheld application performance. There are situations, however, where you might need to optimize storage on the device.

If you need to maximize main memory availability, you can install the Handheld application binary files on an external location such as a CompactFlash card. Installing the data on the CompactFlash card is not recommended because performance likely degrades.

You can specify, in the Handheld application's setup.ini file, where the Handheld application files and Siebel Handheld application database files are to be installed. By default, this is set to the handheld device. In the ApplicationLocation section of the setup.ini file, there are two parameters. The following shows the default settings for these parameters:

ApplicationBinariesLocation = Device
ApplicationDataLocation = Device

ApplicationBinariesLocation = Device means that the default location for the binaries is the handheld device. The other value is CF (CompactFlash).

ApplicationDataLocation = Device means that the default location for data is the handheld device. It is recommended that you always install the data files on the handheld device.

After you have edited the setup.ini file, follow the instructions for installing the Siebel Handheld application.
