See the Discussion from Roger Hed - Unisys titled 'Webview and Toolset'...Right now the only way to deploy to Webview is using Gen Studio.  This is very awkward because to test you need to make the change in the Toolset, close the Toolset, and  then open the Gen Studio to generate.  Recommend that the Webview targeted generation be 'fully' move into the Toolset, as well as Gen Studio. 


Note:  Currently 'Webview' is a TPMonitor option in the Toolset's generation Defaults, but current plans by CA Gen is to remove this option.  Instead, this 'idea' is to allow for targeting Webview generation from the Toolset, rather than just allowing it from Gen Studio.

The Webview TP option for the toolset is being removed because it is currently non-functional and confusing. No further significance there.


Internally, we are in the process of discussing the status of the toolset and development IDE in general, and how best to proceed with the disparities between Gen Studio and the Toolset. The clumsiness of having two disparate tools is recognized, and we are working to address the issue.


In the short term it is unlikely that we will add this capability to the toolset.

I agree with this Idea.
