Webcomponents on Delivery Server -Is it "the way" to build functionality in OpenText Delivery Server?
This is common question that arises when developing on OpenText Delivery Server and everyone gives their own opinion about it based on the complexity in building webcomponents, maintaining them and troubleshooting issues with it.
1) Whether the functionality being provided is something which can be componentized
2) Whether the functionality is a nice to have functioanlity for any other project or customer (be it on the same delivery server or different delivery server)
If the answer is Yes to the above two questions, then definitely WebComponents is the way to build on Delivery Server. It is surprising that RedDot/OpenText doesnt teach in their trainings how to build web components and use them, but understanding the pattern and getting a grip on it is easy and will help one build functionality in better modular way, providing easy reuse across projects and customer base.
