I want to develop an mobile app, which should show properties of - for example delivery notes, orders or services. How could I include images (like the scanned delivery notes)??

I have to use the SAP Content Server!?

What are the possible ways of interacton to show the images on the mobile screen?

Thanks for some tipps,

Have you decided on the type of a mobile app you are going to create?  There are a couple of samples that demonstrate how to capture an image from a mobile device and send it to the backend system as well as how to show an image on the mobile device that was sent from a backend system.

They are using SUP Mobile Workflow designer with SUP 2.1.3 to create an HTML container based application.

The samples are available on the SUP Apps site

In particular have a look at the section called Accessing the Camera in the Expense Tracking Sample

To include attachments we don't need a Content server. But with content server also we can do.

It depends on the ABAP program you are writing to fetch the attachments or the requirement.

The MBO will look like this.

The fields needed in the output of the RFC are:

Binary -containing the base64 string.

Filename- name of the file

Mime Type- Type of file , ex: for pdf - application/pdf

And Size- Size of the file.
