Use the Portal Document Manager Access builder to quickly create web applications that operate on data in IBM® WebSphere® Portal Document Manager.
This builder works only with WebSphere Portal Version 6.0. WebSphere Portal Version 6.1 does not support Document Manager.
With the builder, you specify the type of Document Manager data to operate on. Typically, you work with the types CollaborativeDocument or Folder. CollaborativeDocument represents documents that are stored in Document Manager. Folder represents folders stored in Document Manager. Add a Portal Document Manager Access builder to your model for each type of data on which the model operates. Create, retrieve, update, and delete operations are supported.
Use the builder Search Criteria section of the builder inputs to further refine the data to operate on. Search criteria properties include Java Content Repository (JCR) search paths, a search string, data type properties on which to search, and the number of results to retrieve. By default, the search criteria are retrieved from the builder_nameSearchCriteria
variable at runtime. By presenting a form to users, you can let them specify their own search criteria. Using the builder inputs in the Search Criteria section, you can override the search criteria values.
In the builder, you can control how the binary data of a document is handled at runtime. For example, with the downloadDocumentContent
LJO method, you can stream the binary contents of the file to the browser.
