Create Note Web Service and Sidebar Gadget

[ Edited ]
The Create Note Web Service is an example of exposing ACT! functionality via a web service, and consuming that web service in a variety of ways.  The web service allows login, enumeration and searching of contacts, and creation of notes.  This functionality is accessed using one of three methods:
 
  • the web service also hosts a web site allowing access to the functionality
  • a win-forms application which uses the web service to implement the functionality
  • a Vista sidebar gadget which uses javascript to implement the functionality.

With the side bar note creator... any idea if this can be used in a stand alone install of act.... it would be call to be able to use it like a note pad or yellow sticky notes with out having to open and search the whole database.

Re: Create Note Web Service and Sidebar Gadget

By stand alone install - I presume you mean a single machine has ACT!, the ACT! database and any supporting components and the user logs directly into this machine to access the ACT! client...

 

This solution requires that the hosting machine run IIS (to host the web service).  If you are able to install IIS then there is no technical limitation preventing the solution from running on one machine (in fact that's how I run this solution here to test it).  That being said, adding IIS to a client machine and running a web service on that machine MAY have the effect of slowing down an overworked (or under powered) computer. 

 

In summary the answer to your question:

Technically - Yes it can be done

In the field : Maybe, If the machine already has IIS installed and running then you'll likely be OK, otherwise test it out before committing.
