IBM Content Manager OnDemand

Chapter 1. Product overview

ODWEK allows users to access data that is stored in an IBM® Content Manager OnDemand server by using a web browser or a user-written program. For example, you can provide access to Content Manager OnDemand with the following methods:

ODWEK verifies that the user information is valid on the OnDemand server, such as permission to access the server and data stored in an application group. After the user submits a search, ODWEK displays a web page that contains a list of the documents that match the query. The user selects a document to view and ODWEK sends the document to the browser.
