XML content is rarely authored in a vacuum. The Resource Manager in XMetaL Author provides a convenient piece of screen real-estate to connect the author to the rest of the world. Sitting right beside the editor pane in XMetaL Author, it’s the perfect place to present information needed by the author, collect ancillary information about the content while it’s fresh in the author’s mind, or display widgets for the author to initiate additional processing on the content.
For example, you can use the Resource Manager to:
* display a to-do list of changes that need to be made to a document
* embed a powerful third-party image editor, e.g. to display and interact with a 3D image of a machine part
* let the author search for relevant reusable content
* let the author record metadata while they author a document
Join us for a quick introduction to embedding Internet Explorer in the XMetaL Resource Manager and how to communicate between Internet Explorer and XMetaL Author and your back-end systems.
