E9.2 Mobility Solutions

Currently, we have JDE Standard Mobility applications up and running on Mobile devices using JDE Tool set (9.2.4.4).
My understanding is Oracle will not be supporting JDE Standard Mobile aplications beyond April 2021. Any thoughts on what mobile strategies could be pursued to align with Oracle strategy moving forward. Example, Orchestrator (Capable of Full Development?), Custom Java Development - what else?

I would say the Oracle strategy on this aligns with everything else they are doing around JDE. They want to bring you in further to their cloud eco-system. Specifically, their offering going forward appears to be Visual Builder Cloud Service (VBCS). I would hope that they would have implemented some decent example applications but I doubt they have the "100 apps in 100 days" they built for JDE standard mobility 2.0. This new approach does use Orchestrator/AIS on the backend for VBCS to talk to.

Have a look at this learning path: https://apexapps.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=44785:50:0:::50:P50_EVENT_ID,P50_COURSE_ID:6471,508
It includes a PO approval example app.

My take is that the above is the only way to align with Oracle. For other mobile choices you will still have all ones you have today such as REST calls from a mobile app directly to the AIS (like the current mobile apps do), BSSV calls (like the original mobile apps did), XML Call Object calls (like DSI and some other third-party mobile JDE solutions do). If you bring up these solid but older integration methods to Oracle they won't go so far to say that they are going to be de-supported but they will turn their nose at them..

No, I just think it was reprehensible of Oracle to say "You know that mobility architecture you invested so much in? We're dumping it, so sorry."
