MFS Multiplatform: How to Install the Android Client on Android SDK Emulator (Doc ID 1643166.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Mobile Field Service - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Though not supported for a production environment, it is very useful for various reasons to be able to run the Mobile Field Service - Multiplatform application (app) on an Android Emulator rather than on an actual device. For instance, when the real devices are iPhones/iPads only and no Android devices are available, it would be impossible to test new fixes (not released yet) to the client app as iOs only allows to install from the Apple Appstore. On Android however, install files (apk's) can be installed from other sources as well. So any fixes can be tested on there without the need to have it released to the appstores.


This document describes the steps to install the Android SDK (Software Development Kit), which can be used to run an Android Emulator session to install and use the MFS app.


As mentioned above, this would not be a supported configuration for production. The application is not designed to run on the emulator - stability issues may occur.


 This is aimed at Mobile Field Service - Multiplatform only. The steps below are detailed, but would benefit from some experience with installing technical applications on a PC.
