Comparison of Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP) 1.5 vs. 2.0

Sybase Unwired Platform SUP 1.5 vs 2.0

As I mentioned in my journey article, I had a wonderful experience working with various versions of Sybase Unwired Platfrom (SUP). According to me, SUP 1.5 was a more stable version, which can be considered as one of the better Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms (MEAP) available.  In this article, let me compare the SUP 1.5.x (stable) version with SUP 2.0 (improved) version

Comparison of Features SUP 2.0 vs. 1.5
SUP 2.0 SUP 1.5
SUP 2.0 allows you to configure the Relay Server details from the Sybase Control Center In 1.5.x version, we need to do this by modifying the configuration file which was a tedious process.
Mobile Workflow application has been changed to use Hybrid Web Container Architecture In 1.5.x version, this was a email based workflow application
SAP integration is handled better, i.e, the support for single sign-on using x509 certificate and SSO login ticketing mechanism are added
New option has been provided for the cache policy to Partition the cache by Requester and Device Identity

Features of SUP 1.5.x that are removed in SUP 2.0 version

  • Device Application Designer(DAD), which allowed users to create a template based Native applications for Windows Mobile, Windows Desktop (Win32), and BlackBerry Clients was removed
  • Support for J2SE based client support has been stopped by removing the J2SE code generation option
  •  In SUP 1.5.x, Windows Mobile used to work on both MBS & RBS as well, but in 2.0, it is restricted to RBS alone.
