Timothy Davis: OpenText WSM and Wave Together
written by Timothy Davis, 21. August 2012
What follows is a simple recipe for creating an OpenText Wave Application filled with content from OpenText Web Site Management.
1 existing WSM Project with Articles Content Class, you may have 1 to many available
1 existing Wave Application Template with NewsList and NewStory XML Consumer
Take WSM Project:
Add Articles Variant to convert HTML to text for native applications:
Here’s a view of the template, not much needed:
Publish that out.
This Delivery Server project already had target DynaMent’s delivering personalized news:
Made a minor change to the target DynaMent to use the variant content:
Some minor tweaks were needed. Then pointing the URL for the NewsList template to WSM Delivery Server and this is the resulting application:
Cross Platform Native Applications (iOS, Android, Blackberry providing content reuse in a different channel
- Clean up the content for the application a bit.
- Examine sharing sample configuration (DS Transport Package, MS Content Class Template export& Documentation) to SolEx. This took about 2 days effort scattered in amongst other tasks, having a sample configuration will dramatically cut development time.
