Custom application (WAR) in PPM Server

Has anyone tried deploying custom application (war) into PPM Server. If so, what do we need to change in order for us to reach the application page.

Also give me some info if somebody has tried embedding flash on request.

Re: Custom application (WAR) in PPM Server

Hi,
regarding custom applications the documentation of the basic app server JBoss may help. Never tried myself though.
If you like to embed flash (or any other media type) you would want to have a read-only field with the HTML fragment (object tag) as content. The HTML has to start with to be rendered. The flash file has to be available for the server of course.

Re: Custom application (WAR) in PPM Server

Hi,

we integrated a simple JSP into PPM server.
Just go to /server//deploy
and create a new directory like 'custom.war'
then create the JSP file 'HelloWorld.jsp'
with 'Hello World' as content
Restart PPM and open this URL
http://:/custom/HelloWorld.jsp

There you go

Re: Custom application (WAR) in PPM Server

I tried as you said by creating a war and deployed a jsp. It gives me a page cannot be displayed error.

I am very interested in knowing more about embedding a flash on a request. How would you get data and store data to the database using flash. I mean do you use any out of the box api or everything is custom build in this regard. Were did the business logic go into?

Appreciate everyones help here. Thanks

Re: Custom application (WAR) in PPM Server

Hi,
I have no personal experience with flash and I don't know how flash handles db connections. I wonder if flash could use the db connections from the app server, as long as you are dealing in the Java world (JSPs etc) there are ways to access the connection pool the app server provides, but flash may be a different story.

Re: Custom application (WAR) in PPM Server

I have used php for interaction between
flash and DB once.But here in case of PPM one cab use JSP in place of PHP.Flash read the Data as plain text separated by delimiter .

You can check below tutorial how flash load data from database using PHP.

Adding to Michael.Ebert response.

If it is a portlet you have to add the reference at conf/portlet.xml file.

You need to bounce the service delete the server/instance/work and tmp folders meanwhile the service is down.

After that you have to import it as java portlet.
