Configuring Microsoft Dynamics NAV Application Server

My client runs Microsoft Dynamics 2009 R2 and now they need Mobile Sales solution, a solution has already been chosen to run on the Handheld devices. I have just realized that Microsoft Dynamics NAV has features that can already handle mobile sales so i need to setup all the required Components. I am new to this feature where can i find the Mobile Development Tools – Server Components.msi and Mobile Development Tools – Server Components.msi files.

    The mobile solutions have been discontinued. You'll need third party or build your own solution.

    Thank you for your response. I have been going through microsoft online documentation http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd297069.aspx. This documentation is it still valid then?

    what are you trying to accomplish. You can build a much simpler solution using webservice and for example. ASP.NET MVC.

    Thank you for you response, i realy appreciate. My Client runs Microsoft Dynamics NAV R2 as i mentioned ealier they have invested in handheld devices (XPDA-S) and also a POS software solution that runs on these devices so the investments were already made ... myself i have been tasked to integrate the POS software on XPDA-S with Microsoft Dynamics NAV R2. I have noticed that the POS software outputs text files delimited by a semi-colon (;) The XPDA-S is placed in a cradle by a Sales Person after a days sales, a Sync program is run by the XPDA-S... this is the point when files are moved from the XPDA-S to a location on the server computer, i shall also want files to be created that will be synched to the XPDA-S from Microsoft Dynamics NAV R2.

    So essentialy it is this two way communication which has to be achieved using the technologies that my client has invested in.

    If you are doing offline integration. You can write custom code to import the tab delimited file to create sales order. You'll need to research the file types that nav needs to generate and write xlmport to generate the file.
