Develop Data-Entry Architecture For Handhelds
Develop Data-Entry Architecture For Handhelds:
In follow-up to the discussions at our recent meeting with Matt, we need to get cracking
with generating data-entry forms for handhelds. Initially we will target the hand-held
screen size but runnign on a desktop machine (possibly running on a tablet PC later) - so
the main thrust of this work is initially to get XUL generated as a result of inspecting the
schema and interviewing the end-user. Questions to resolve and issues to address
a) Redo one of Carol's field apps using XUL, so we know what we're aiming for
b) Thru' discussions with Carol, determine how we could generate this UI, based on a
user questionnaire and schema details
c) generate it!
More specific to handhelds:
i) How do we get data in & out? talked about using patial EML documents at the
ii) discuss storage structure for handhelds - shoudl be feasible to abstract this away and
use a common API for all devices??
