Siebel : Standard Interactivity Limitations and Supported Browsers

Standard Interactivity Framework: refers to the user experience associated with traditional web applications. Most user interactions result in a page refresh. For example:

* When creating a new record, the user selects the new button (which refreshes the page), enters the relevant data, then selects the submit button (which again refreshes the page).
* When browsing through a list of records, the page refreshes each time a new record is selected.

1. Auto Save not present. User needs to save explicitly

2. Browser scripts will not work in SI. So no Custom popup warning messages, Some vanilla class based warning messages still appear.

3. ActiveX components are not supported. (Calender drag and drop will not work)

4. Java components are not supported

5. Multiple selection in List applet using Ctrl or Shift key not possible.
