Use the CAI protocol to launch IBM® Lotus® Expeditor.
Composite Applications are URL-addressable with URLs beginning with CAI:///
. This is known as the Composite Application Infrastructure (CAI) protocol. For the browser to understand the CAI protocol, CAI must be registered with the operating system. In Windows®, the registry file cai_register.reg is part of the IBM Lotus Expeditor installation. IBM Lotus Expeditor contains information to be written to the Windows registry. In Linux®, a similar technology, called GConf, is used to register CAI with the operating system. On a multi-user installation, the first time the Lotus Expeditor Client is run by each user, this registration (enablement) is executed.
Thereafter, when a URL beginning with CAI:///
is used in the browser, IBM Lotus Expeditor will open (if not already open) and load the specified composite application. See Creating client runtime images for more information. In addition, links starting with CAI:///
that are included inside document types which support links on the operating system will also be enabled, resulting in IBM Lotus Expeditor opening and loading the specified composite application.
Within IBM Lotus Expeditor, use the Edit
-> Copy As
menu items (enabled when a composite application is opened) to create these CAI:///
