While testing, it became apparent that the before event “OnSend” applet launch runs just one active applet at a time on the client. It’s a single tasking problem. I used this simple applet to identify the issue:
Sub Main(Client, GWEvent)
msgBox “the applet is waiting”
The applet is configured to fire on a before GroupWise even “OnSend”. When requesting to send an email messages, the msgBox prompts as it should. However, if the message prompt is temporarily ignored and a send request is issued on another email or if a second send is requested on the same email, an additional applet session does not fire. In fact, the GroupWise client shuts down. It’s just not good. I’m not sure if this is a GroupWise OnSend single treading issue, or if we have a problem somewhere in our configuration. I have a much more complicated applet that may prompt the sender to optionally abort the send. In reading forum entries, using an applet for this type of functionality is a common theme.
We’re running the GW client 6.5.6 build 2/1/2006 using Formativ v 2.0.1
Do you have any suggestions that enable a client applet to run multiple active sessions to support multi tasking GW users?
Thanks for your ideas,
