Atsushi Sato, Akihiro Kosugi, Norimasa
Hayashida and Atsushi Ono from IBM Japan have contributed a new project
Enabler for XPages.
Similarly to LiveText in the Notes client,
the enabler for XPages underlines certain words that match specific patterns.
Users can then mouse over these words to invoke services. At this point
the following types and services are supported.
Extension points to define custom types
and associate other services might come later. Right now the source code
would have to be extended by developers.
Technically the enabler uses OpenCalais
(developers need to register to get keys) and it has been implemented as
Java control using the extensibility API.
The best way to understand what the
enabler does is to watch this video.
There is also documentation
