In this blog series, we will go through how to start developing a simple mobile application with Sybase Unwired Platform.
For the sample application, we will use SAP Mobile Platform Version 2.2 SP2.
The information provided in this blog can be found in the online help on SyBooks Online infocenter.
Thanks to SAP for providing 30 days trial of SAP Mobile Platform.
In this trail connection to SAP System, sample database and unwired server is already done.
In this sample application I have used the standard flight data application components to search for flights, display the results and show the details of a particular flight in online and offline mode.
