I apologize for the delay to publish this post which should have been posted a while ago. It was still waiting in my draft post list. Just before last christmas, I’ve got my colleague Anthony Ponceot who was just pushing really hard to get a nice mobile interface working for Aras Innovator. Some of the work was financed by one of our customer who will benefit of it pretty quickly to create Problem Reports directly from a smartphone or even a tablet getting a chance to take a picture and include it directly in the newly created problem report. So you may have seen this video directly from youtube a while ago but it’s good to see how we can extend the possibilities of client interfaces.
We’ve used jquery mainly because we started this project before the announcement of Aras switching to dojo. We believe that once the Dojo library switch will be release, we will look into the capabilities of dojo to create mobile interfaces. We will also make sure that we are not interfering with Aras R&D as their goal is to provide a UI kit which will allow companies to easily produce user interfaces adapted to each work.
