Tools for sending windows to WIS

Edit section

There are two tools available for publishing InTouch windows to a WIS server:

  1. Win-XML Exporter: Used for publishing classic Intouch applications to WIS.  Does not support Archestra graphics.  Has been around for a long time.  Runs as seperate app off of start menu.  Windows are published to the Process Graphics section of WIS.  Requires InTouch running for its data source.
  2. Archestra Web Exporter: Used for publishing managed InTouch applications.  Supports Archestra graphics.  Runs from within Archestra IDE.  Windows and graphics are published to the Archestra Graphics section of WIS.  Requires a platform deployed to it for Galaxy data, and InTouch running for tag data.
