OPA Mobile App and SDK – Snap Poll

OPA Mobile App and SDK – Snap Poll

Please vote in our Snap Poll

We are running a new Snap Poll on this website to discover a little bit more about the usage of the OPA Mobile App in the wild. The Mobile App, available for Android and iOS devices allows the user to use Policy Models that have been selected for Mobile Deployment on the Oracle Policy Automation Hub application, and can be targeted easily at a subset of users by means of a Role addition.

The Mobile App provides a device-optimized user interface and features such as easy pause and resume. The Oracle Policy Automation (OPA) Mobile SDK provides a cross-platform solution for developers to build disconnected interactive experiences for mobile devices. The SDK is provided within a Mobile Application Archive (MAA) for use with the Oracle Mobile Application Framework (MAF) in JDeveloper.

The MAA gives developers an API for displaying interviews, downloading policy models from Policy Automation Hub and various other services that are useful for building custom mobile advice applications around OPA policy models. Using the session data XML format, data can be loaded into a mobile interview before it is displayed, and retrieved during and after the interview. Obviously the API represents a different and more complex project but does have the capability to be configured specifically to meet  customer requirements.

    1. Hi Sarath. You should think of it like this. You can either use the OPA Mobile App, with the functionality it provides, or you can use the OPA Mobile SDK to build your own app. You cannot customize the OPA mobile application, but you can completely scope and build your own app including OPA functionality by including the Mobile SDK in your JDeveloper or Eclipse (or other development platform) work. There is a good example here from Phil as to what you could do with the SDK https://blogs.oracle.com/opa/opa-mobile-sdk-get-started
