    Hi Nic Smith,

    We are a BO 4.0 Ramp-up customer and we have the BO 4.0 server at SP01 level. We are trying to connect this iPad application to our BO server with no sucess. Currently there is a lack of documentation on that. We would need to know which url address de we have to set up when configuring the connection. And do we need to install/deploy additional packages in the BO Server?

    Kind regards

    Sergi Marin

    This is mainly a prototype. From the usability stand point this still needs a lot of work.

    In a iPad application, when you see people clicking randomly on the screen while nothing is happening …. bad sign.
