The motivation for customization
You can categorize the main drivers for customizing QuickPlace as belonging
to one of the following three groups:
QuickPlace’s already robust collaboration, document
management, workflow, and administration capabilities
QuickPlace with other applications and platforms
components developed in or for QuickPlace and even reuse
Places themselves with PlaceTypes
Throughout this redbook we give many examples of customization
in each of
these groups. But before we dive into the code, we first give an overview
of the different ways to customize
For a more in-depth discussion of what motives there are for
customization and examples of the kind of customizations
performed by users, Place managers,
Server administrators and developers, see Appendix
K, “Zen and the art of QuickPlace customization”
on page 403.
Different ways to customize Quickr
QuickPlace is by far the most customizable instant collaboration platform
available for organizations engaging in collaborative
projects or ad hoc initiatives.
While the “out-of-the-box” capabilities of QuickPlace greatly
enhance a team’s performance, it is the customization
capabilities of QuickPlace that
allow advanced collaboration systems to evolve along with a
team’s unique mission.
