passing parameters to another application

Hi!

I'd like to use the Visual Composer for the following task: I want to create a form in Visual Composer where I can enter values, e.g. height, length. Then, I want to pass these parameters as input parameters to another external software that itself will execute a calculation and then return the results to Visual Composer. I want to display the results in Visual Composer.

As far as I can see, it is not possible to pass parameters to an external software or to connect an external application (not a data base) to the Visual Composer. Am I wrong? If it is possible, how can I realize it?

Thanks for your help.

    Try the document

    "How to Integrate Visual Composer Applications and BEx Web Templates"

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/visualcomposer?rid=/library/uuid/16244247-0a01-0010-3294-d81c21e7e86e

    This gives a glimpse of how different applications can interact in a VC application.

    You can do this with the portal eventing framework. Use signal out from VC. Either subscribe to this eventing framework using javascript or java in your external application or create a webdynpro application that will take this event and send it to the other application however it may be needed.

    Hi the data passed from a VC end point in the epcm event is passed as an XML string. This is an example of the data.

    Single parameter named paramsXmlStr

    This parameter will contain xml string. Unescape is needed.

    For example:

    <Params><Row BANK_CTRY="US" MAX_ROW="10"></Row></Params>

    Or

    <Params>

    <Row BANK_KEY="111" BANK_NAME="aaa"></Row>

    <Row BANK_KEY="222" BANK_NAME="bbb"></Row>

    <Row BANK_KEY="333" BANK_NAME="ccc"></Row>

    </Params>

    Your application needs to parse this xml string to get the daya.
