Customizing an Application
When you develop a Web Engagement application, you start by creating your application with the script tools which generates default SCXML strategies, rule templates, and DSL code. You can customize all of this material through specific tools.
The diagram below shows where you can customize the Web Engagement data used by your application.
- If you are following the Simple Engagement Model, you create categorization information with the Categories interface in Genesys Administrator Extension. This information is added to Configuration Server and retrieved by the Frontend Server. When the Frontend Server receives a browser request, it checks the category information. If you are following the Advanced Engagement Model, you create business events by modifying the DSL using the InTools application.
- You must publish the CEP rule template associated with your engagement model. You can modify this template before you publish it.
- You can customize the SCXML strategy files available in the _composer-project directory of your application folder. See Customizing the SCXML Strategies for details. At this point you can also customize the various Browser Tier Widgets.
- The Genesys Rules Authoring Tool (GRAT) loads the CEP Rule template and allows you to create a package of CEP rules based on your categories (Simple Engagement Model) or on your business events (Advanced Engagement Model).
- If your application is built and deployed, and the Web Engagement servers are started, you can deploy rules with GRAT.
- GRAT notifies the Backend Server that rules are available in the Rules repository.
- The Backend Server downloads the rules.
- The Backend Server updates the Frontend Server. You can use the InTools application to customize your DSL.
- When a browser submits a request to the Frontend Server, the Frontend Server checks the categories before providing the monitoring data.
- The user's web browser loads the updates.
