The perils and pitfalls of the WCI gateway transformer

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

All right, so you know my ol’ phrase “browser to portal, portal to back-end server“.  That is, the browser connects to the portal, the portal connects to the back-end-server (i.e., your custom code), back-end server sends HTML to the portal, the portal parses and transforms that HTML and returns it to the browser. 

This post is about that step where the portal transforms the HTML you return from the your custom code.  I could be incredibly long-winded here about all sorts of tricks and nuances of some adaptive tags that seem to only half-work, but figured I’d just share some quick tips to give you some ideas on how you can trick the gateway engine to do your bidding.
