WSO2 Gadget Server - Bringing people and information together

  • Executive Dashboards
  • Customer Portals
  • Internal customized home pages
  • Content aggregation sites or
  • User interfaces to any SOA application
We are just days away from the official release of WSO2 Gadget Server v1.0 and have been busy adding the final touches. We now have ample documentation to get one started. Not that Google Gadgets and the WSO2 Gadget Server are hard to figure out, but we want our users to know exactly what this tool is capable of and to help them gain its full benefits.

We just published an article by Nuwan in OT (Authoring, deploying and using XML Gadgets in WSO2 Gadget Server), which should help Gadget Developers get started with WSO2 Gadget Server. Whether you are a Google Gadget veteran or just starting out, this will be helpful to get your Gadgets added to the Gadget Server's Portal and Gadget Repository.

I have also done a screencast, which is a video tutorial highlighting some core functionality within a few minutes. Stay tuned for that as well.

If you want a sneak peak and want to get started while you wait for the official release, we have a Release Candidate available here.

WSO2 Gadget Server is an Apache 2.0 licensed free and open source software and paid support will be provided by WSO2 when required.
