Desktop Integration with a Web Based Application
This master thesis work was done at Ipendo Systems in Linköping, a company that makes an intellectual property management system called Ipendo Platform.
The master thesis describes the design and development of an extension to a web based solution to work as desktop application and demonstrating the solution with an Outlook plugin. The goal was to improve the workflow for the user when handling documents received by mail and also find and evaluate a model for product integration that could be re-used for future projects.
The result of the master thesis is an Outlook plugin and a web service that exposes part of Ipendo Platform functionality in a service layer. As a final test the solution was tested in a production environment to simulate real world usage.
The report provides conclusions about the pros and cons of this kind solution and how the current design and implementation of Ipendo Platform has affected the outcome.
