Workplace Smart Client Platform

by Volker Weber

Declan makes an interesting observation about Workplace 2.0 beta. Personal Productivity installs four main components for the smart client platform:

1. Workplace 2.0 Smart Client Platform

2. WAS Express server (to enable offline capabilities and emulate a local WebShere Application Server (WAS) version 5.0.1

3. Cloudscape database library (contains local library files for WAS Express)

4. Personal Productivity application consisting of features and plug-ins including mail, calendar, instant messaging (IM) and configuration files for offline capabilities, which are activated on-demand by the Workplace server

I think I understand now why nobody dares to call this a fat client.

On a slightly related note: I was not in error, when I called this the smart client. Anybody confused?

so - no bigger than WSAD, really.

Where can I get this Beta? Is it available for download somewhere?

ah, so you think you're so "smart", eh? "smart client" was terminology we used internally prior to Lotusphere, so I'm not surprised it made it into some documentation. You won't see it in the future, though.

Not really. Only happy that I was not stupid. I briefly thought that I mixed something up but it turns out, I did not. Several people did say "smart client".
