Enum Class EntryPointType

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<EntryPointType>, Constable

public enum EntryPointType extends Enum<EntryPointType>
Enumeration that indicates a JWt entrypoint type.

An entry point binds a behavior to a public URL. Only the wthttpd connector currently supports multiple entry points.

  • Enum Constant Details

    • Application

      public static final EntryPointType Application
      Specifies a full-screen application.

      A full screen application manages the entire browser window and provides its own HTML page.

    • WidgetSet

      public static final EntryPointType WidgetSet
      Specifies an application that manages one or more widgets.

      A widget set application is part of an existing HTML page. One or more HTML elements in that web page may be bound to widgets managed by the application.

      The application presents itself as a JavaScript file, and therefore should be embedded in the web page using a <script> tag, from within the <body> (since it needs access to the <body>).

      Note: A WidgetSet application requires JavaScript support

    • StaticResource

      public static final EntryPointType StaticResource
