Accessing a MOSS 2007 Site on Mobile devices


1) I am aware that simply adding a "/m" to the site URL gives me the mobile URL but it opens the _layouts/mobile/mbllists.aspx page instead of showing the site default.aspx page. I want the site to be accessible on mobile devices in the same way as through internet browsers. What is it that I need to do?

2) Can someone also tell me how does MOSS handle mobile requests i.e the underlying architecture?

Variations feature - Publishing sites on Mobile devices



I am doing some research on Variations for rendering our website on Mobile devices. Our current publishing site is not rendered properly on devices...

My questions is -

Is Variations a default/standard solution that people use for SharePoint Publishing sites on Mobile devices?

If yes, Please point me to an implementation that uses Variations for mobile devices specifically, or a guide on how to implement variations for mobile devices. All that Google gives me is for Multi-Language support.

If not, what other solutions are there for rendering SharePoint publishing sites on Mobile devices? 

Thanks in advance.







Serving Silverlight Apps from Windows Mobile

Even if mobile dev is not my every day work, thanks to the .Net Compact Framework, it's still .Net programming.

Here is the scenario:

You come back home, you have a windows mobile phone wifi capable and you want to quickly get access to your phone pictures from your home network.
You just activate the Wifi, run my app and then browse to the provided link from any computer on the network.

Reading and Writing Images From a Windows Mobile Database using UltraLite 10(C#)

Periodically I get a request for information on how to read and write binary data to a database running on Windows Mobile. If you search the Internet you can typically find examples that are available on Windows Desktops or allow you to read and write to a local file system. The problem is that it can take a bit of work to get this code to work on Windows Mobile accessing a database.

Ultimately you might be asking, why would I want to store and image in a database? Well in an environment where you synchronizing data between a local mobile database and a consolidated (central) database this can be extremely useful. Imagine if an insurance adjuster went to an accident scene, took a picture of a damaged car, loaded it into his Windows Mobile database and then replicated that image up to the Insurance headquarters for approval. All of this could be done in a very short period of time when using images in the database. Another good example might be a doctor who was waiting for a patient chart to become available. If you could store the image in a database this chart could be sent down to the doctor's device once it became available.

For this article I am not going to get into how to synchronize the images to and from a remote and central database as this is typically fairly straightforward when using a data synchronization technologies like MobiLink

Creating a Smartphone Application and Using Data from SQL Mobile

In this exercise, you will use Visual Studio 2005 to create a Smartphone application. You will associate commands with a mobile device's soft keys, and you will add the ability to scroll through the list of available products (a list of images). You will create a data source for an existing SQL Mobile database, and then test the application in the Windows Mobile 5.0 emulator.

In the following procedure, you will create a new Windows Mobile 5.0 project in Visual Studio.

How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.

Windows Mobile Wireless Ad Hoc Networking Tutorial permalink

Despite what I've written earlier about it is better to get a wireless router and using infrastructure mode, there are still situations where adhoc mode might be useful. Imagine visiting a friend who has a notebook with wireless connection. He also has internet connection, and you'd like to check your emails. But he needs to work on something with his notebook. Internet connection sharing using ad hoc mode would be useful here.

And so, I've re-written the guide for Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows XP with SP2. The old version of the guide for Pocket PC 2002 is still accessible
