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

    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.
