    Hi Usman,

    I had integrated my Outlook inside portal in the following way:

    Create a new HTML page and add the following code

    these will give u the functionalities(like inbox, contact, calendar) of the outlook.

    next place this html file inside the inetpub folder of IIs server..

    that is

    Create a folder on the server running IIS under Inetpub (for e.g.

    Inetpub/wwwroot/SAPPortal/IE/Outlook) and add the HTML file

    now from the webdynpro jus make an iframe an d inside the init method jus set the path to the html file

    like..

    wdContext.currentContextElement().setSource("");

    this will get u to access your outlook.. later u can make this is a webdynpro iview inside portal.

    though the steps look lenghty.. it can be easily done.

    and regarding OWA yes it is different

    for this u can refer to

    Hi Usman,

    after placing the html file inside the particular folder,

    get back to ur webdynpro.In the view insert an iframe

    using insert child.In the implementation u have to specify the path like as i said previously

    for example:

    wdContext.currentContextElement().setSource( "http://CGN-3F0228:80/test/test.html");

    like this inside the init method.

    this is the only one line code required for the entire thing inside webdynpro. nothing more needed.

    u should be able to see the output once u deploy the application.later u can make that as an iview inside portal.

    Guess am bit more clear now. if u still have problems let me know. I shall try to help you further then.

    Thanks & Regards

    Uma.
