The web-demo gives a presentation of how CoMod works in combination with the Apache Tomcat application server.

In addition, CoMod also works together with other application servers such as e.g. Bea Weblogic and IBM Webshere.

At the server end, CoMod merges the data entered in the HTML input form into a document. Then this document is converted to the desired format and sent back to the browser. In the example, plausibility checks are performed at the client end by means of JavaScript. A crosscheck of the variables is also possible at the server end.


The form fields entered in the HTML document are passed on to a servlet via the http protocol.
The servlet passes the parameters to the CIB office modules and then starts the document generation. On the basis of the information, CIB merge creates the document from the initial modules and merges in the variables. The document is pre-processed by CIB format in a page-compliant manner and passed to the relevant output module. The output module creates the desired resulting file and returns it to the servlet. The document is returned to the calling browser again via the http protocol. On the client, the application associated with the file type is started or the file is saved in the desired directory.
