    Introduction This document provides quick overview of the basic steps to enable BusinessObjects Mobile Interactive Viewing on your BusinessObjects Enterprise XI R2 server and wireless devices.

    Enabling Business Objects Mobile Interactive Viewing on your Server

    There are several steps to enable BusinessObjects Mobile Interactive Viewing on a Windows based BusinessObjects Enterprise XI R2 server.

    Install BusinessObjects Enterprise XI R2 Service Pack 2 The first is to install Business Objects Enterprise XI R2 Service Pack 2 as the BusinessObjects Mobile server can only be installed on top of BusinessObjects Enterprise XI R2 Service Pack 2.

    Deploy the Mobile Web Services Package BusinessObjects Mobile is enabled through web services. The web services package is deployed from the dswsbobje-mobile.war file. The BusinessObjects Mobile zip file contains the dswsbobje-mobile.war file. For consistency, it is best to place the dswsbobje-mobile.war file in the same directory as the other BusinessObjects XI R2 WAR files. Here are the following recommended paths for Windows and UNIX environments: • Windows - C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects

    Enterprise 11.5\java\applications

    • UNIX - /path/to/xir2/bobje/enterprise115/java/applications

    Quickly deploy this WAR file in Tomcat using an XML descriptor as you would with other WAR files. Tomcat has a configuration directory filled with XML files for each application, and all you need to do is add an XML descriptor for Mobi. To deploy the web services package from your Apache Tomcat server, a reference to it is loaded from an XML file that is located in the localhost subdirectory of your Tomcat server. mobiwar.xml file contents on Windows For Windows, create a mobiwar.xml file and enter the following contents:

    Save this XML file to the Tomcat web application configuration directory, which by default is: C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Tomcat\conf\Catalina\localhost. mobiwar.xml file contents on UNIX For UNIX, create a mobiwar.xml file and enter the following contents:

    Figure 2

    Save this XML file to /path/to/xir2/bobje/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost.

    NOTE The docBase attribute tells Tomcat where to find the web services package for BusinessObjects Mobile.

    Verifying the Mobile Web Services Package has been deployed When this mobiwar.xml file is saved to the localhost directory, Tomcat will automatically recognize it and will deploy BusinessObjects Mobile (Mobi) for you. To verify that the web service protocol has been enabled, in a browser go to http://:/mobi. The server name will be your hostname, and on Windows the port is typically 8080. The page that opens will show if you have been successful in setting up AXIS. AXIS is an implementation of the Simple Objects Axis Protocol (SOAP) that web services uses to transfer data.

    Configure the Over the Air Loader The Over the Air Loader (OTA) component allows wireless devices to download and install the client application to enable mobile interactive viewing. The OTA component is contained in a folder named OTALoader in your BusinessObjects Mobile zip folder, which is part of your installation package. Depending on whether you are using Windows and UNIX, copy the OTALoader folder to one of the following directories: • Windows - C:\Program Files\Business

    Objects\Tomcat\webapps\mobi

    • UNIX - /path/to/xir2/bobje/tomcat/webapps/mobi

    Once the OTALoader package is in place, you can access it at: http://servername:8080/mobi/OTALoader/index.html

    Customize the OTA JAD file for your CMS (optional) If you choose, you can customize the JAD file that is sent to mobile clients when they install the client component. This allows you to pre- configure the program for your CMS.
