Do you mean a version of EPF that publishes
process for browsing on a tablet? Or do you mean for authoring on
I recently tried browsing a published
website on Firefox for Android, and it worked quite well on a 10"
However, for smaller mobile devices,
I don't think it would work very well.
The main challenges to a small mobile
1. The treebrowser with content pane
on the right.
new UI would need to be designed that separates the tree and the content,
in order to make use of the visual space.
would want to change the navigation so that you can navigate using big
content includes graphics that will not display well in a small form factor.
These challenges can be overcome if
we get some volunteers to work on them.
In terms of authoring via mobile devices,
that is a much bigger challenge.
EPF Composer is based on Eclipse, and
Eclipse doesn't run on mobile devices.
That said, it would be possible to develop
a web-based version of EPF composer, so that editing is done via the browser
a back-end server storing the data.
That would, however, be a major undertaking.
At the current time, IBM's contributions
to EPF composer are primarily bug fixes, with new development mainly going
into Rational Method Composer
to support improved integration with
enactment tools like Rational Team Concert.
So the brief answer to your question
1. You can browse EPF websites on Android
using Firefox (and possibly other platforms), although there is no explicit
testing on these environments.
2. There are no current plans to improve
support for mobile devices, but volunteers are welcome to do so.
