Deployment of NSF-based composite applications with NSF and Eclipse components (reference article)
-- This article provides you with conceptual and reference information on the deploying a composite application as well as updating an existing composite application
Step-by-Step deployment scenario 1: Application "move" example
-- This article describes a deployment scenario that "moves" an NSF-based composite application from a development environment (local only or test Domino server) to a single-server production environment. This scenario is intended for Lotus Application Developers who are familiar with NSF based composite applications and Domino Administrators who are familiar with creating forms and agents in Domino Designer and setting ACLs on Lotus Notes databases.
This information is provided for example purposes ONLY. It is published to provide developers with a more step-by-step example which might be used as a guideline for deploying a similar application that they might have developed.

Generic Containers and Utilities
-- This article describes how to download and install new features for Lotus Expeditor 6.2 and Lotus Notes 8.5 that build on the capability in Composite Applications known as generic containers. A container provides a simplified way for an application assembler to create components from existing assets - Notes Views, Symphony Documents, Host on Demand (terminal / 5250), Web Pages, and more. Alternatively you can think of a container as a template for generating a component, whereby the container is used to dynamically configure the asset and then add that asset as a component in the palette of the Composite Application Editor.
In addition the Catalog preview feature allows the Composite Application Editor to open the Widget Catalog, similar to My Widgets, to share and publish components.
