Pinned topic Develop widgets for IBM Connections with WEF?

‏2012-09-25T12:11:09Z |
Hi,

Under "Feature info" there is an "Widget Extension" in WEF.
Therefore, is it possible to develop widgets for IBM Connections with Web Experience Factory 7 or 8?
If not, how can I develop widgets for IBM Connections?

Regards,
Jens Hagel

    Hi,

    Deploying widgets from WEF onto IBM Connections is not supported. To develop applications for Connections there is quite a lot of published information; you might start with this: http://www.lbenitez.com/2012/04/how-to-develop-apps-for-ibm-connections.html

    I think that answer is incorrect as there is a Widget Adapter builder available.

    With that, you can make an application with WEF and export it as a WAR file.

    Here is a little doc about it:
    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/esbsoa/wesbv7r5m1/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.wbpm.bspace.dev.doc%2Fdoc%2Fdeveloping_widgets%2Fcreatingwidgetsusingwidgetfactory.html

    I have made exactly one widget with WEF. The layouts, at least the default ones that View and Form uses, are not well designed for a narrow space (horizontal scrollbars).

    Let me hear your experiences if you decide to create a widget using WEF :)
