Web applications targeting the Lotus® Expeditor platform are called Client Services Web applications. Since components in the Lotus Expeditor platform are called bundles, a Web application targeting this platform is also referred to as a Web Application Bundle or WAB.
Lotus Expeditor Client for Desktops supports Web applications using Servlet 2.5 and JSP 2.1 features. Lotus Expeditor Client for Devices only supports Web applications using Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 features. Note that the Web Tools do not restrict an application developer from using features that may not be supported on devices.
A WAB can be developed using many of the same Web development tools provided by the Web Tools Platform and Rational® Software Delivery platform. You should therefore refer to the Rational Application Developer for WebSphere® Software documentation Developing Web sites and applications
as your initial Web development tools reference. The following topics discuss the additional development considerations and tool usage required when targeting a Web application for the Lotus Expeditor platform.
The following table provides pointers to information on Web development activities and information on tasks that are unique to, or require special consideration when developing Web applications for the Lotus Expeditor platform.
