Migration Options

Enterprise Browser 1.8


Enterprise Browser offers several options for migrating apps from different operating systems, competitive solutions and legacy systems so they can run on modern hardware EB versions. Below is a summary of EB migration options with links to the relevant documentation for each.

From PocketBrowser

PocketBrowser is an app development toolkit for Windows Mobile/CE that's built on the mobile version of Internet Explorer. It enables developers to quickly build mobile apps for a wide range of functions, including barcode scanning, signature capture and printing.

In many cases, PocketBrowser 2.x/3.x apps can run within Enterprise Browser after just a few small changes. The PocketBrowser Migration Guide explains the changes that will always be required for migrating to EB from PB, and a few others that might be.

From RhoElements

RhoElements is an extension of the RhoMobile HTML5 development environment that enables connected and non-connected apps to perform seamlessly on Android and Windows Mobile/CE devices. Enterprise Browser supports RhoElements 2.x applications, which in many cases will run in EB with just a few small changes. The RhoElements Migration Guide explains explains the changes that will always be required for migration to EB, and a few others that might be.

From RhoMobile

The RhoMobile HTML5 development environment allows apps to target Android and Windows Mobile/CE devices using the same code. Enterprise Browser supports RhoElements 4.x Shared Runtime applications and HTML-based hybrid RhoMobile applications for Android and Windows Mobile/CE that use HTML and JavaScript. Ruby APIs and Ruby-language program code are NOT supported.

From SAP Console / TekTerm

For companies moving away from terminal-based mobile applications that use SAPConsole, Zebra TekTerm or similar character-based front-end solutions, Enterprise Browser should be considered for its simple means of developing portable UIs with industry-standard HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
