Steps to Enable EditLive!
|As of 1-November-2008 |
Ephox has released an official production version of EditLive! for Quickr J2EE. You can obtain this installer by visiting the Ephox web site:
The installer simplifies the process of installing the software plus adds a properties-file that allows you to have different configurations for the editor based on the user that is using Quickr. This role-based configuration is identical to the capabilities in the Ephox LWCM integration.
- Copy Integrations Files to Portal Server Machine
Move the Ephox_IWWCM_6.zip file to a temporary location on the machine hosting the IBM Websphere Portal Server. Extract the contents of this file to this same temporary location.
Step 2 -
Replace String Variables
1. Using a text editor, open the sharedMethods.jsp
file, located in the web/jsp/html directory in the temporary location where Ephox_IWWCM_6.zip was unzipped.
2. Replace the string "@@!IWWCMROOT@@"
with the absolute location of the Teamspace Portlet web directory on your Quickr Server.
Note: Use / characters to define the path, not \ characters. Ensure a trailing / character isn't left at the end of the path. The parts in italics will likely be unique to your installation.
- Copying Integration Files to the Teamspace Portlet Root Directory
1. Copy the contents of the web directory, located at the temporary directory where the Ephox_IWWCM_6.zip file was unzipped.
