Q&A

  • When we have to use WebSQL storage or Local Storage, and which is the drive to decide which one we have to choose? Dimension of data read, or something else? 

    • The amount of data. Local Storage has a smaler size. WEBSQL is normally enough but we have some customers that uses the plugin (This gives 2 terrabyte) Normally this is used if you store images locally. 


  • Is websql safe, can it be encrypted on device? 
    • WEBSql is not encrypted pr default. We recommend using SAP Mobile Secure with Mocana. Then the entire App will be encrypted.


  • What is current browser support for websql? 
    •  All except Internet Explorer, then Local Storage will be used. For IE it's a 10Mb limit
    • Using Phonegap plugin we support all mobile devices

  • What kind of themeing & branding capability is provided by Neptune
    • We have implemented support for the SAP theme designer. So you can download your theme and import it into the designer. You can also change the CSS manually of course. 

  •  General Question: how can I pass a url-parameter when initial starting an Neptune web app?
    • Passing a URL parameter to the Application Class, when you fetch the HTML5 page, you can use the parameter KEY and KEY_ID. They both are found in the parameters for the OnRequest method in the Application Class
