Using EPCF in an external HTML

Hi,

I am importing an external Web content as an URL iView in Enterprise Portal 6.0. The ideal situation is the external content, after being created as an iView through portal's URL iView template, can raise an event to other iView created in either PDK or Web Dynpro. So, my question is, can EPCF be included in the external source and be understood by the Portal?

Thanks.

    Hi Teecheu,

    As correctly pointed by Anoop the EPCF works on the "behind-first-dot" rule. It makes cross-frame scripting possible when the content comes from different servers BUT in one domain. Thus it will not be possible to pass data across servers that are in different domain.

      Hi Detlev,

      At last, it works! I added the JS file in the Web server, and everything fell in place! Now, I can concentrate on the communication between the URL iView and my other iViews. Nevertheless, you have already solved my problem. Thank you very much.

      P/S: HTTPWatch is a neat tool. It showed that the Portal was not interpreting the external content and gave the HTTP 404 error while the external application was trying to access the JS file that did not exist.

      Thanks again 😊

    Hi Teecheu,

    the answer is "most of it", see https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/documents/a1-8-4/enterprise portal client.pdf pages 20-22 and if the server with the included stuff differs in the domain, pages 40-41.

    Hope it helps

    Detlev

    Hi Teecheu,

    The EPCM object is automatically included to all

    the iviews that are displayed inside the portal even if they are external content, provided the epcm is activated.

    Unfortunately, this wonderful option is very much limited by the javascript's limitation on running across different domains. So if this external content what you

    mention is right within your enterprise then it should work without much trouble.
