SAP Mobile Platform Server 3.0 SP6 – What is new ?

We are pleased to announce that SAP Mobile Platform 3.0 (SP06) was released for download on SAP Service Marketplace on Friday, February 20th.

We are delivering new capabilities in the following three big areas:

Integration with non-OData sources, Expansion of Fiori capabilities and Out of the box readiness for production Deployment.

The enhancements for “integration with non-O-Data sources” are the support of clustering of the integration Gateway. This allows customers now to also scale out and run in high availability their mobile solutions based on integration gateway. Additionally we have enabled single sing-on authentication mobile solutions, which are leveraging the integration Gateway.

We also continue with our enhancements around enabling features for mobile Fiori apps. Additionally to the already existing offline capabilities we offer to the Fiori mobile application we now also enable offlining attachments. With this feature customers can also store media content offline so that the user can work with it offline. This could be images, pdf or other media files with more product details for example. Furthermore we added support for SAP web dispatcher as a reverse proxy. This enablement can simplify the landscape for a lot of customers who have the web dispatcher already deployed, as they can reuse this now for the mobile deployments as well. For details on this please check the PAM.

Finally, we are using a new embedded administrative database for developer and other non-production installations of the SMP Server Runtime.  We have replaced Derby with the developer version of SQL Anywhere for these non-production configurations.  Additionally, we have also added SQL Anywhere as an option for productive use, making the complete list now HANA, SQL Anywhere version 16, ASE, Microsoft SQL Server (both 2008 and 2012 versions), Oracle 11, and IBM DB2.  You can consult the SMP PAM on Service Marketplace for details (SMP3 PAM (access to the Service Market Place is needed)).

      Hi Sami,

      The offline feature you mentioned (offline support for images, pdf and other media files) are supported by hybrid and native apps too? ie. $value requests that use binary data.

      Hi Sami,

      Am I understanding it right, that if my OData Gateway Services would provide capability to upload and download media files then those files would also be saved in the device's OfflineStore? For example I could save a picture on my device, flush my OfflineStore and the picture would be sent to the backend?

      I'm a bit confused, since the documentation of SMP SDK SP06 says, that OData media resources aren't supported. http://help.sap.com/saphelp_smp306sdk/helpdata/en/88/9d29b3fac0456b812d86b5794c6e54/content.htm?frameset=/en/76/30b99b08…

      Hí Christian

      that is correct since the media support for offline came with SMP SDK 07:

      OData SDK - Release Notes Summary - SAP Library at: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_smp307sdk/helpdata/en/7c/039dc470061014afc8f92e8405d20a/content.htm?frameset=/en/7c/01d254700610148eed82399be5eb3f/frameset.htm

      It is a little unfortunate that the SMP server brings feature in a different release version that the SDK.

      Hi Sami,

      Is anything changed the way Agentry Applications are deployed with SP6?

      One of my team member tried to deploy/publish  an agentry application using management cockpit after applying the SP6 but failed, though the same application works allright with SP5.

      Ahmad,

      There were no changes to publishing Agentry applications through the cockpit that I am aware of in SP06.  Did you upgrade an existing SP05 to SP06 or did you do a clean install?

      Hi Bill,

      We upgraded the existing application from SP05 to SP06. I believe SP06 perform more checks when application is published. An obvious error in the startup log is "8:44:50 04/08/2015: Exception: 08:44:50 04/08/2015 : 0 (General), File system exception (The path could not be found, ), ..\crossplatform\win32\FileSystemWatcher.cpp#95:Syclo::FileSystemWatcher::resetNotifications"

      Ahmad,

      I would suggest that you create a Discussion marked as a Question.  Not only so others may benefit from your solution once it is found, but also because you will have more folks looking to provide a solution when your issue has the greater visibility of a Discussion.  Also suggest that you visit the Getting Started link at the top right of each SCN page for help with creating a good Discussion.
