1 Using JD Edwards EnterpriseOne for iPad

This document contains the following topics:

1.1 Overview

Oracle supports JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client on the Apple iPad tablet through the Safari Web browser. This availability through Safari Web browser on the iPad enables users in the field to access all of EnterpriseOne and to react quickly and efficiently to time-sensitive business tasks without having to download an application.

Oracle also supports an iPad application, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne for iPad, which maximizes screen real estate and provides a navigational user interface optimized for the smaller, touch-enabled screen of a tablet.

1.2 Prerequisites

Before you access JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client on the iPad, make sure the following prerequisites are met:

  • Verify supported releases of iPad and Safari Web browser for iOS.

    For more information about JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Minimum Technical Requirements, see the following document on My Oracle Support: JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Minimum Technical Requirements Reference (Doc ID 745831.1), which is available here:

    https://support.oracle.com/rs?type=doc&id=745831.1

  • Disable the pop-up blocker in the iPad settings for Safari.

    To disable the Safari pop-up blocker on the iPad:

    1. On the iPad, tap the Settings button.

    2. On Settings, scroll down and tap the Safari option.

    3. On Safari, toggle the "Block Pop-ups" setting to the OFF position.

1.3 User Interface

On the Safari Web browser on the iPad, the appearance of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client applications is the same as how they appear in a Web browser on a desktop client. The difference between the two lies in how you navigate and interact with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application forms and features.

On the iPad, you use touch-screen gestures to navigate and interact with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client applications. You can use gestures that are native to the iPad. For example, you can use a native gesture such as swiping your finger upward on the iPad screen to scroll down through a form. You can tap a field or a cell in the application grid to access a keyboard for entering data.

You also can use context-sensitive gestures designed specifically for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client.

Note:

Some JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client features are not supported on the iPad. See "JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Features Not Supported on the iPad or in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne for iPad" for more information.

1.3.1 Increasing the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Menu Display Size

You can use the native iPad reverse-pinch gesture to zoom on the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Menu. Alternatively, you can tap Preferences on the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Menu and then tap the Zoom check box to increase the display size of the menu.

1.3.2 JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Context-Sensitive Gestures

Oracle provides context-sensitive gestures for working with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client. To perform a context-sensitive gesture, you must begin the gesture in a particular area in the Web client application, either in the menu area, the form area, or the grid area. For example, performing a context-sensitive gesture in the menu area at the top of a form closes a form; performing a context-sensitive gesture in the form area opens the Form Exit menu.

Note:

On the iPad, you can access a description of all JD Edwards EnterpriseOne context-sensitive gestures by tapping the "About(i)" link in the upper-right corner of any JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application.

1.4 Using Context-Sensitive Keyboards for Entering Data

The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client for iPad supports the iPad context-sensitive keyboard feature. A numeric keyboard appears when you tap a field that requires only numeric characters; an alpha keyboard appears when you tap a field that requires only alpha characters. If a field allows both alpha and numeric characters, you can toggle back and forth between the alpha keyboard and numeric keyboard to enter the data.

1.5 Third-Party Web Site and Google Maps Application Support

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Web client applications can contain URLs to third-party Web sites. If a user taps a URL on the iPad, the iPad opens another Safari browser window with the specified Web site address in the URL.

If a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application contains a URL defined with a Google Maps Web site address, you can tap the URL and the iPad will launch the Google Maps application for iPad. For example, the following URL will take you to a map in the Google Maps application, showing the location of One Technology Way in Denver, Colorado:

http://maps.google.com/?q=one+technology+way+80237

The Google Maps application must be installed on the iPad to support this functionality.

See the following Web site for guidelines on how to properly form a URL that launches the Google Maps Web site:
