How to present another application in a frame of the User portal


A developer asks:

We want to embed a frame of another HTML-based application into our Process Commander user portal.  Can this be done?


Suggested Approach

Two ways to link other applications have been implemented.

The easiest way is to include an anchor in the Process Commander portal that, when clicked opens a separate window for the second application. 

If you really want the other application to appear within a frame, the harness rules do have support for target frames. 

Note that normal Internet Explorer security settings prevent frames from different servers from communicating with each other. 

If you have an iframe inside one of your frames, the name of that iframe becomes part of the common namespace of the window, and you can target it.
