The VirtualViewer® HTML5 IBM Content Navigator (ICN) Plugin and Content Handler enables easy integration with IBM’s Content Navigator.

VirtualViewer® Server

The VirtualViewer® Server forms the backbone of the imaging and viewing experience. The VirtualViewer® Server is responsible for managing all user requests and handling communication between the Viewer and the Connector.

VirtualViewer® Connector for ICN

The Virtual Viewer provides a framework for integrating with external ECM Systems utilizing customized Connectors. The Virtual Viewer Connector for ICN consists of two components that work together to enable the Virtual Viewer integration with IBM Content Navigator. Those components are as follows:

1. VirtualViewer® Content Handler for ICN

It is the responsibility of the Content Handler to manage the Virtual Viewer’s interaction with the back end ECM System and to ensure that documents and data are retrieved from and saved in the ECM System accurately.

2. VirtualViewer® Plugin for ICN

The VirtualViewer® Plugin for ICN is implemented as a plug-in within IBM Content Navigator and delivers requests from ICN to the VirtualViewer/Content Handler.
