Understanding composite applications: XPD621
Composite applications are applications that enable independently-developed components, which provide specific business functions to run together in a single application.
Developing composite application logic: XPD621
The types of components that can comprise composite applications, the tools you can use to build them, and the technologies that they can employ are wide-ranging.
Building composite applications locally: XPD621
You can create and open composite applications with the local file system and edit them using the Composite Application Editor (CAE).
Building composite applications using Portal UI: XPD621
Portal-hosted composite applications are created from composite application templates which are either blank (no components) or contain existing components. These templates are created using the WebSphere® Portal Templates feature.
Building composite applications without WebSphere Portal Server: XPD621
There are several options for creating composite applications when the WebSphere portal server is not available.
Exploring more advanced functionality of composite applications: XPD621
After you have gained a basic understanding of composite applications, you can explore more advanced functionality of the composite application infrastructure.
Creating a simple composite application in Eclipse: XPD621
This topic provides a list of steps that you must complete to create a composite application project which is made up of an SWT view component and a portlet component.
Interacting with existing composite applications: XPD621
This section contains procedures for interacting with existing composite applications.
Using component windowing properties and actions with composite applications: XPD621
Different window states are exposed as output properties with the actions to open, close, minimize and so on, exposed as callable actions. This section describes each of these in detail, explains some current limitations and caveats with each property and action, and illustrates how to use the windowing properties and actions with composite applications.
Composite application navigators: XPD621
A set of composite application navigators are provided with Lotus Expeditor, in the form of SWT views with widgets for navigating the pages of a composite application.
Generic application container framework: XPD621
The generic application container framework is a set of extensions for applications that are contained within a single view part. For instance, a web application with many pages.
Accessing topology meta data: XPD621
Creating "tearoffs" and saving composite applications: XPD621
Lotus Expeditor allows you to “tear off” a composite application (that is, extract a subset of the application into a new composite application), or save an existing composite application that has been modified, with a serialization class in the com.ibm.rcp.topologyhandler component.
Using the mobile composite application framework: XPD621
The mobile composite application framework greatly eases the task of creating composite applications on devices. Your application can create an instance of the framework. Application plugins can then extend a framework extension point to integrate their views into the framework, allowing users to easily select application views.
