    Title:
    Forum Purpose: Desktop and UI Extensibility
    Summary:
    The purpose of this forum (Desktop and UI Extensibility) is unclear and could use more pinned Quick Start Guidance.
    Content:

    Shiv's been doing some great work generating awesome content for extending web-based UIs with JavaScript.

    This forum would benefit from more pinned content from Oracle.  For example:

    • PHP for custom processes (setting up a dev environment)
    • AddIn development for the .Net desktop client
    • Creating and working with custom objects

    Also this forum seems name-challenged.  For most people, Desktop and UI are too similar to be in a list of different things.  I think you actually mean extensibility for the .Net and browser-based desktop clients.

    The Welcome statement at the top of the forum would benefit from a technical description disambiguating the purpose and terms.  The current descriptive text is word for word the same several other forms.  It's probably cut/paste when the forums were first set up.

    I'd be happy to contribute some descriptive text but I'm not 100% sure about the scope.

    How about this?

    • Custom objects
    • .NET Agent client: AddIns, PHP Processes
    • Browser Agent client: JavaScript, PHP Processes
    • Did I miss anything?

    Please let me know if I can help.  Thanks.

    Cheers,

    Ron
