Dynamic Web Repositories

Hi Crew,

Am investigating the Dynamic Web Repository where it is supposed to add websites to the repository whenever a new website has been accessed successfully...

I have managed to force the repository to add a new website by entering the URL to the web repository eg. http://twdfp084.wdf.sap.corp:50000/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/web/ (/web being the prefix), and adding the URL eg. www.tracksmag.com...

I have also forced it by creating an KM Navigation iView and making the path to document folder as /web/www.tracksmag.com, and clicking preview...

What I want to know is??? Is there another way to make the web repository add website??? For example, I would click the www.tracksmag.com resource and get taken to the website, and if I were to click on a link on the first page that takes me to another website, and that website is added to the web repository???

Paul

    i think there is no such a way, since every time you manipulate the KM RF you have to restart the J2EE server.

      Not true. Only certain types of configuration changes require a restart.

    I'm not sure what you're asking for.

    The Web repository is <i>dynamic</i> - that is, whatever path you use after "/web", it will try look that up on the internet. There is nothing to be added here.

    Confused, Julian

    I have read this as well, but please explain where exactly do you enter the path after "/web"?

    Do you do it in the properties when you create an iView that refers to the "/web" repository? (have tried this and it returned an error because the path is not actually a folder in the repository) or do you do it in the address bar of the browser? Doing it this way definitely adds the web site but does not make sense it terms of how you would use it in a business scenario.

    The reason for the question is simply that a dynamic web repository grows as you successfully access a new web sites, however the "as you successfully access a new web sites" is not well explained.

    What is the user meant to do that constitutes successfully accessing a new web site? Or is it an administrator function to access a new web site?

    Confused as well, Paul

      Yes, adding the path in the URL address bar will be sufficient.

      Now you seem to say that this acceptable for debug purposes, but not for everyday use. Agreed.

      On the other hand, the dynamic web repository will <i>not</i> "grow". It's just delegating access to remote resources (and also may have a persistent cache). That really means that there is no such concept as of "adding" something to it. Whatever you access (by specifying it in the path) it will try to lookup; but it won't "stay" in the repository at all (except for caching).

      Best regards, Julian
