We are using OBIEE 126.96.36.199 and our client would like to use OBIEE in Android tablet. We understand that currently there is no official Android app. So we are trying to use native web browser with flash player installed to log on OBIEE. It looks fine at first glance, but when we scrolled up and down, the flash graph such as bar/pie chart will move along with our moving fingers!
Although the flash graph will return to its correct position once we stop scrolling, it's kind of annoying and our client is not satisfied with this. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or is there any other browser that can support OBIEE? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I think you need to come out of flash, since you are looking at mobile content delivery. I belive thats what the Oracle BI App also does. However in your case you might have to disable flash for graphs for entire server so that it works on android device. 11g allows you to set graphs in static images instead of flash graphs, although look and feel on desktop will also change. Modify the following section in instanceconfig.xml and change the DefaultImageType to png and then try again:
Thanks for your reply. We followed the suggestion to modify the XML, but the BIEE services can't be started afterward.
We will do some researches to let the XML thing work and let you know if the problem is solved! Thanks. :)
Also search for this property in MBean browser within enterprise manager.
If this thing works, you also have an option of setting up a seperate presentation server, just to cater to mobile users. That way you can leave flash for desktop users, and disable flash for mobile users.
