View Full Version : CUstomizing the PUC : Using a WebApp instead of Launch.jsp

06-29-2010, 04:41 PM
I want to use a developped JAVAWebApp instead of the Lauch.jsp page for my PUC.

Pentaho-3.5.2 uses GWT-1.7.1

and my question is :

1- Am I obliged to use GWT to deal with this issue...?

2- If not what is the best framework to deal with this issue...?

3- and if so, am I obliged to use the 1.7.1 version of GWT or i'm able to use the latest version of GWT..?

thank you in advance ! :)

Take a look to see what I did with YUI on the pentaho-cuc on code.google.com.

Given that pentaho is just a webapp in tomcat, you donor need to use launch or home or any of the pentaho supplied jsps for that matter.

Launch only modifies the right hand aide of the PUC when nothing else is there.

I have been interested in a webapp that is somewhere between Navigate and the current PUC.

Thanks for your quick answer ! (^_^) that prevents me from diving into gwt coding.

1- I've read that the SteelWheels example was made using YUI, is that true..?

2- How can i learn from it ...? (i'm a newbie on Pentaho)

3- Is there any tuto, wiki, forum, blog, book or anything where i can start learning how to use YUI for designing App's front-End for Pentaho...?

Thanks in advance for your help, I've had a quick look at your blog:
it's interesting and it's a good thing to see people sharing knowledge
I'll have a deep look at it this week.

Yes, my blog has some information. You may also see the google code projects pentaho-yui and pentaho-addon, there is the cuc that was written entirely in YUI. One of the legacy SW parameter pages was done in YUI for tab views. Nothing else. Pentaho is onto GWT now, so no more YUI. the CDF uses jQuery, so while I believe YUI is superior to jQuery, it gets no love right now.

Thank you for the clues, so for now ,I think i'll go with GWT-2.0.4

I'll start learning it from the GWT page from google


Is there any better place to start learning how to use Pentaho+GWT...?

Thank you for your help !
