Please find answers to your queries below.
1) Do I need DataWedge for EB to work with scanner on WinCE 7?
You do not need to enable datawedge to get the scanner data in EB. EB has it's own barcode APIs to get the scanned data . EB also supports getting data from DataWedge but getting data via B APIs will give you more flexibility and options.
2) Am I able to play sounds (wav files) using EB?
Yes.Please use playFile api of Notification object to do the same.
The answer for the first question is almost obvious but I found a piece of confusing docs, so decided to ask.
It seems that Notification playFile API doesn't support WinCE (at least it's not explicitly stated):
- Windows Mobile
What I was looking is the Mediaplayer API:
Play the audio file using the supplied filename. On WM/CE devices, the API supports only wav file format.
However, as I understood, this feature may depends on the platform.
As far as I remember there was some bug with playFile API in MC3190CE6 and this was implemented later for CE devices.It should be there in Enterprise browser for CE devices.
Can please you give it a try?
Did medeiaplayer API work for you?
Well, I'm still evaluating the possible solution so I cannot say if it works for me or not
My device is WT41N0 with WinCE 7.
As soon as I got the results I'd post them.
Thank you for the help.
