We have a requirement where in a single iView (CRM Opportunity), we would have a custom tab (call it CTAB1), clicking on which should display a separate web-based application within that tab. (as illustrated below):
The web based application would be called through a URL and a few parameters must be passed on along with it from the CRM application. All clicks within that tab would be processed by that application and once the process actions are completed, certain details would be passed back on to the CRM application. We will have custom tables and fields to capture that data in the CRM database. This data (static data) needs to be displayed under another custom tab (CTAB 2) in the same iView.
The web-based application can pass on and understand XML messages.
My queries are:
1.How feasible is this scenario?
2. What kind of effort is required to build CTAB1 (custom tab calling an external URL)?
3. What kind of effort is required to build CTAB2 (custom tab calling a custom table and custom fields residing in CRM DB)?
4. In case we decide to build the UI for the web-based application (UI elements in iView, no data in own DB, but calling APIs in the web-based application to process the data), what would be the approach required and how much additional effort would it require compared to 2?
Pl Suggest me
Thanks and Regards
