Planning mobile use
There are many ways to deploy your visualizations and data to mobile users. If you expect to distribute your BIRT designs to mobile devices it is important to verify that users can access and interact with your report. Consider what your users want to accomplish with your BIRT data and visualizations.
The following issues and solutions are common for mobile device users:
*Infrequent network access
*Support PDF downloads for user review without network access.
*Small screen size
*Use large table rows for viewing and interaction.
*Use chart themes optimized for mobile use.
*Avoid too many visualizations on the same page.
*Use CSS and JavaScript to enable user choice of report elements to display.
*Slow network
*Keep data queries on the server side.
*Generate BIRT report documents to avoid database queries.
