Chris Connor October 10 2011 09:55:30 AMCurrently evaluating some options around providing a custom web interface for Resource Reservations for booking rooms. The requirement also needs to build in some custom workflow / approval processes to provide for overriding bookings. Ideally I am looking for a nice Web user interface that is
1. Nice (Web 2.0 - I hate that expression) modern web experience
2. Works well on mobile devices
3. Built on XPages
Ideally I would like this to be based around dojo - although there is nothing I could find at this stage. I know there would not be too much effort to do this around jQuery as there are a plethora of nice looking calendar tools that use Web Services / XML / JSON or whatever for pushing data backwards and forwards. Paul Withers is also advised on some interesting stuff (from part of his stuff on the new XPages extension library book) from the extension library which takes the iNotes interface and makes it more available via xpages and web services. It has built in controls for events for creating entries, rescheduling etc - so looks interesting.... (Paul bribed sorry asked if I would reference the Excellent Extension Library Book - coming soon on amazon).
Another developer Toby Samples took the jQuery approach using "Full Calendar" - that also looks interesting. There has also been some work on the 8.5.3 template which I have yet to look through. I suspect though that the UI / customisation requirements may exclude that option....
Anyone else doing anything similar out there?
