The Documentum Web Development Kit (WDK) is a Web application tool set.
WDK provides the following functionality:
A Java tag library of easily configured Web-based UI widgets
A Java framework that supports application-server based state management, messaging, branding, history, internationalization, and content transfer
A set of configurable components that generate HTML widgets and provide access to repository functionality
WDK's architecture incorporates three models: A presentation model that uses JSP tag libraries to separate Web page design from behavior, a component model that encapsulates repository functionality in configurable server-side components, and an application model that consists of a set of components and the WDK application framework, DFC, and native libraries.
In the diagram below of a Documentum portal application, an environment layer is shown. This layer is conceptual only and does not represent an actual application layer like wdk or webcomponent. The environment layer consists of all of the parts of a Web application that differ depending on whether the application is a standalone Web application or a portal application.
