This simulation method runs the workflow on your mobile device by using MobileTogether Designer as a server. It reports server messages in the Messages Pane. Simulation on the client assumes that your mobile device can connect to your PC over wireless LAN. Do a trial run on the client (simulation on the client) as follows:
|Note:||A design file can be used by only one client at a time for client simulation.|
The simulation language for designer and server simulations is selected via the Project | Simulation Language command. The language of client simulations is the same as the language of the client mobile device on which the simulation runs.
Editing the XML trees of page sources in the Simulator
The XML trees in the simulator display the XML data of the various page sources and how these values change as the simulation progresses. You can edit the XML trees directly in the Simulator using cut/copy/past/delete and drag-and-drop. (The editing commands are available in the context menu of the XML tree.) The Simulation pane will instantly show the modified data. This enables you also to test the solution with modified XML data structures containing different manually entered data. As a result, you can quickly try out alternatives that contain different data and/or structures.
The context menu of XML trees in the simulator offers the following features:
•Load XML: Loads an external XML file (that has the same structure and elements as the XML tree) into the XML tree.
•Save XML: Saves the structure and data of an XML tree to any location you like.
•View in XMLSpy: Opens the XML tree in Altova's XMLSpy program.
•Overwrite $XML structure based on this tree: Overwrites the structure of a page source with the the structure of the XML tree in the simulator.
