ARender seamlessly integrates to all existing FileNet user interfaces: IBM Workplace XT, IBM Content Navigator (ICN), IBM Case Manager (ICM). Easily enhance your existing FileNet repository with the ARender viewing experience by simply deploying our ARender plugins to these FileNet User interfaces !
Beyond simple document viewing, ARender 4 FileNet brings multiple key features - The largest set of document formats supported
ARender relies upon the IBM FileNet Java API (Jace) to communicate with the FileNet repository. Selecting the underlying protocol (HTTP/HTTPS, IIOP, Cobra ..) is then a matter of configuration within ARender, in line with the capabilities and settings of the application server actually hosting FileNet Content Engine (CE).
When it comes to user authentication and authorization, ARender completely relies upon FileNet to check user credentials for document viewing, annotation management and new content publication. As such, ARender deployments generally reuse existing FileNet authentication and share user identity.
ARender also supports single-account pre-authentication (generally an elevated account), thus not requiring any user authentication at ARender side, when specific integrations handle authorization and auditing outside of standard FileNet practices.
