Visual composer applications

Hi,

This may be a basic question .

What is the settings to be done to deploy the VC applications in portal?

Once we deploy the model created in visual composer where it will be deployed?

What is GPAL?

Best Wishes

    Typically the iView is deployed to the PCD under a common folder structure such as Visual Composer > Models > model name > iviews > pertinent iviews. If the model contains multiple iViews, they will all appear under the iviews folder.

    Also, I typically have the GML to a different location from the portal as backup copy.

      Hi,

      When the visual composer applications are deployed it is getting deployed into 'Webdynpro Applications' . Its not getting deployed into the portal content folder.

      Is there any configurations set to be deployed in that way?

    Hi Idhaya R,

    The link given by John talks about GPAL(Generic Portal Application Layer).

    It is used to make the content developed outside the Portal(e.g. PDK Applications, WebDynpro Applications, VC Applications) available n the Portal in order to be able to readily use them to create the PCD objects out of them.

    In Content Administration in CE you can see the GPAL repositories such As 'Portal Applications','Web Dynpro Applications', 'Portlet Applications'.

    VC Models are developed outside the portal and are deployed as Web Dynpro applications. That's the reason they are shown under the 'Web Dynpro Applications' in CE. You can just copy them from there and Paste in 'Portal Content' as PCD object to readily create the Portal content.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Ajay

    Idhaya R,

    VC is integrated with CE7.1 onwards.

    You access VC using the following URL:

    http://<server>:<port>/VC/freestyle.jsp

    Since you access the URL of the same CE server, the models get deployed on the same CE server.

    Regards,

    Ajay
