IBM® Lotus® Expeditor 6.1.1 and Lotus Notes® 8 added the capability to support dynamic translation of JSPs (previous versions only supported precompiled JSPs) which WebSphere® Portlet Factory requires.
Unfortunately, it is not yet in the core features installed with IBM Lotus Expeditor and Lotus Notes 8, but rather from an update site provided with IBM Lotus Expeditor and Lotus Notes 8 where optional IBM Lotus Expeditor platform features may be installed. For IBM Lotus Expeditor, the Web Translation feature may be found in the platform update site along with other optional features provided with the Lotus Expeditor media, and it may be installed manually using the IBM Lotus Expeditor update manager, or using the IBM Lotus Expeditor managed server (see the IBM Lotus Expeditor documentation for more information on managing IBM Lotus Expeditor using a centralized server). A Lotus Notes 8 support TechNote documents how to install the Lotus Notes Supplemental Features, including the Web Translator feature.
If you want to use WebCharts, or any similar portlet features relying on Java AWT/Swing, you need to be running IBM Lotus Expeditor on the full Java J2SE JVM. A full Java J2SE JVM is provided with the IBM Lotus Expeditor DRE update site, rather than the default smaller jclDesktop Java Virtual Machine that IBM Lotus Expeditor installs by default.
Dojo drag and drop support
In IBM Lotus Expeditor and IBM Lotus Notes 8, you can use Dojo drag and drop within the same portlet. However, Dojo drag and drop does not operate across portlets. Because each portlet window in this environment is a unique browser window, the Dojo drag and drop functionality cannot be used to drag from one portlet to another.
In IBM Lotus Expeditor and Lotus Notes 8, client-side event delivery does not operate across portlets. Because each portlet window in this environment is a unique browser window, the client-side event delivery specified in the Event Declaration builder cannot be used to send a client event from one portlet to another.
