Driver Selection Tool

Purpose

The Driver Selection Tool (DST) enables the SAP MI Web Admin administrator to select peripheral driver(s) that meet the mobile application peripheral requirements. This selection process also considers the mobile application target device operating system, processor, virtual machine, and available transports.

Integration

The DST is integrated into the SAP MI Web Admin.

Features

·        Display Matched Drivers

Displays available drivers that match the target OS, processor, VM, transport and application requirements.

·        Display Non-Matched Drivers

Displays available drivers that do not match the target OS, processor, VM, transport and/or application requirements. It also displays the first selection criteria that is not met.

Constraints

·        The DST only recommends driver add-ons registered in the DST driver catalog. The catalog is updated by un-deploying old SDA files and deploying new SDA files.

·        The DST only displays the first reason for a mismatch. It may display the operating system, processor, virtual machine, transports, or attributes in that order. On two instances more information is presented:

Ў        Transports - If the reason for a mismatch is the transports, the DST will display all the transports that did not match.

Ў        Attributes - If the reason for a mismatch is the attributes, the DST will show all attributes that were not matched. For each attribute, if more than one option does not match, the DST will display only the first option that did not match.

Refer to Driver Requirements Document Editor for an example of attributes and options.
