Does or can BR run on a Windows Mobile platform such as a cell phone or PDA?

If so are there any constraints that need to be considered?

Thanks

George

It work with Remote Desktop on Windows mobile. There is also an SSH client for Windows Mobile that will allow you dial into a SSH server and run BR in text mode like in Dos or Linux. Both of these choices have complications.

The Web Scripting Bridge aims to solve this issue in a different way. By creating a web interface to your programs, you can format it to display on virtually any device with a web browser. Practically all cell phones have web browsers and internet access these days. The bridge will also expose the type of browser to your code so you can make any adjustments necessary to display properly. Since all processing is done on the server there is very little required of the tiny cell phone processors to run the application.

Other than that we'll have to wait for ADS to port BR to Windows Mobile. I don't think thats gonna happen soon.

Anyway you slice it, you'll probably have to do a lot of customization to your user interfaces for programs to display properly on a small cell phone screen and and use have limited keyboard input. It can be done, though and I have tested the methods described with some success.

I'll be demonstrating how use the bridge at the conference along with examples of web applications that display on most cell phone browsers.

I am about to have a client test using windows mobile on a Verizon phone for remote data entry via the SSH client that Chris mentioned. Chris helped set it up. Gabriel might be reporting on it at the conference.

By the way, the Free SSH can also be installed on the iPhone 2. Couple of glitches, but it can work.
