4.11 Changing Global File Associations for Edit in Place Applications

When calling applications with the Edit in Place feature, Novell Vibe uses standard file associations. If your organization uses different file associations, you can reconfigure Vibe to use the preferred file associations.

  1. Change to the following directory:




    c:\Program Files\Novell\Teaming\apache-tomcat\
  2. Make a backup copy of the ssf-ext.properties file, which is located in the same directory as the ssf.properties file.

  3. Open the ssf.properties file in a text editor.

  4. Search for Edit in place to move to the block of lines that control the Edit in Place feature.

  5. Review the subsequent comment lines to become more familiar with how the Edit in Place feature works.

  6. Scroll down to locate the line for the file association that you want to change.

  7. Copy that line to the clipboard of your text editor.

  8. Open the ssf-ext.properties file.

  9. Scroll to the end of the ssf-ext.properties file, then paste the line you copied.

  10. Edit the file association as needed.

  11. (Optional) Copy additional lines from the ssf.properties file to the ssf-ext.properties file as needed.

  12. Save and close the ssf-ext.properties file.

  13. Close the ssf.properties file without saving it.

  14. Stop and restart Vibe to put the modified file associations into affect for your Vibe site.
