Developing applications with IBM Content Navigator

IBM Content Navigator provides a powerful platform for building custom web applications to manage content. You can use various extension points and application programming interfaces (APIs) to extend the existing web client by adding custom actions, menus, layouts, or services. You can also use the APIs to build custom applications that incorporate IBM Content Navigator features without using the standard web client.

You use the IBM Content Navigator Java™ API to create plug-ins to implement the functionality that you want to add to the web client. You use the IBM Content Navigator JavaScript API to create custom widgets to use with the plug-ins. In addition, you can use IBM Content Navigator to access the APIs for the content servers.

The sample code in the IBM Redbook, Customizing and Extending IBM Content Navigator, is based on the version 2.0.0 APIs, and requires changes to run on version 2.0.2.
