The Siebel Web Engine allows you to deploy Siebel CRM in HTML and other markup languages. Figure 4 describes how a Siebel client interacts with the object manager on the Siebel Server through the Siebel Web Engine. The Siebel Web Engine includes the following items:
SWSE runs on the Web server and interfaces with the Siebel Web Engine service in the object manager. Most of the work occurs in the Siebel Web Engine. SWSE maintains the session and works as a communication intermediary. Network communication between SWSE and the object manager occurs through SISNAPI (Siebel Internet Session Network Application Programming Interface), which is a Siebel communication protocol that references TCP/IP. It provides security and compression.
The Siebel Web Engine runs as the Web Engine Interface Service object manager service. This service implements most components of the Siebel Web Engine, deploying an interface between SWSE and the object manager. From the perspective of SWSE, the Siebel Web Engine interface service does the following work:
If the user accesses Siebel CRM through a Web client, then Siebel CRM hosts no components on this client. The client interacts through a Web browser. The user accesses a URL that navigates the user to a Siebel application that Siebel CRM hosts on a Web server. This application comes predefined with HTML or equivalent pages that the Siebel Web Engine service creates in the object manager.
You can use Siebel Tools to associate a set of HTML templates with an applet and view to make the applet and view available to the Web. When Siebel CRM displays an applet in the client, the Siebel Web Engine gets the information that defines the applet, the appropriate data for the various applet controls or list columns, and the HTML template. To create the final Web page that Siebel CRM sends to the browser, the engine then combines definition information and data.
