The Restricted Workbench provides an environment in which the user is restricted from accessing the operating system and the Lotus
® Expeditor Workbench is used as the desktop shell.
Expeditor Workbench alters its behavior, look, and feel when the Lockdown Feature is installed on a Lotus
Expeditor client machine. Once the Lockdown Feature is installed, the Lotus
Expeditor Workbench uses the Lockdown Service to achieve the restricted nature described below:
- No title bar
- No sizing borders
- Maximized to fill the screen
- Pinned down in the Z-order such that no other windows can be drawn beneath it
- Cannot be closed
- Cannot be resized
- Cannot be minimized
- File > Exit is removed from the Menu Bar
The above workbench environment is described as the Restricted Workbench. The Restricted Workbench is supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop and Windows XP.
Applicability and benefitsParent topic: Developing the application user interface
The Restricted Workbench allows system administrators to restrict the functionality of the user's workstation to a set of applications and OS services configured by the system administrator; in essence creating a managed client. Target deployments include centrally managed clients such as bank branch teller terminals and retail point of sales devices as well as customer facing kiosks such as ATMs.
To initiate a Restricted Workbench, the ILockdownService
OSGi service is used.
