Publication of Widgets

Virtual DataPort can publish a view or a stored procedure as a widget.

Once a widget is deployed, it allows querying the content of the desired element. It contains both a query form and a table to visualize the obtained results. The widgets are compliant with the most common widget inter-operability standards; therefore, they can collaborate with other independently developed widgets (see section Publication of Views as Widgets of the Administration Guide).

The widgets can be exported to different widget technologies:

  • Java Portal Servers (Portlets JSR-168 and JSR-286)
  • Microsoft SharePoint

Note

We strongly recommend publishing widgets using the Administration Tool (see the section Publication of Views as Widgets of the Administration Guide). That way, all the necessary VQL statements are generated automatically.
