Alan, Len, Andreas, and Mark are demonstrating a usage of Opentalk to publish data from ObjectStudio to the web. It's a simple demo - an SSP page and servlet on the VisualWorks side, with Opentalk used to communicate back to ObjectStudio for the data.
"get the name from the form data and then use it to get data from ObjectStudio" name := self request anyFormValueAt: 'name'. data := self class defaultServiceReference select: name.
Note - you can't just expect to pull a stock ObjectStudio client/server application and push it behind a VW web application - you have all the single user/multi-user issues that would need to be addressed. The summary from Alan - it was more work to create the simple HTML pages than it was to code up the data transmission piece.>
Question: Has anyone used this in the real world yet?
Answer: Yes and no. There are some OST customers using the preview version that shipped with 6.91. As well, Opentalk itself has been used in production by many people using VisualWorks.
Question: What about the documentation? Is it well documented?
Answer: Yes, the documentation shows all this.
