    Default How to create a portal for 6 existing WEB apllications

    Over the last 2 years, I have created 6 mobile web apps all totally independent of each other. Each app has it's own security system with a list of users and permissions. Each app has been built using ux components. The only web pages are index and denied.

    Just recently, I was asked if I could create a Portal where a user could log in just once and have access to all the apps by just clicking on a button.

    I'm sure this can be done. However; my background is desktop and I'm not sure how to do this in the web environment.

    Where could I find an outline or example of how to build something like this.

    Thank you

    Might be easier to implement a persistent login, in other words setting things up from the beginning to have dynamic connection strings would have made it easier but my guess is at this point you would really have to think this through. - why not just add the components to a new app called - the multiapp?
    In other words throw all the "APPS" components in together in one app available via a menu...

    If I was starting from scratch, if would be a lot easier. Unfortunately, I was learning how to build WEB apps so I started real simple and with each, the complexity grew.

    That will work. My only issue will be security as each app has it's own unique requirements. Sarah's link should help.

    I know I started out REAL simple without any knowledge really, and Alpha Software gave me the ability to create my web application where no other software could. Like you the complexity has grown, along with the knowledge I gained here. My wife can attest to the cursing, and my firm belief I was too stupid to do this - but I never gave up.

    Maybe you need an all NEW security table that combines everyone and perhaps as we all know any associated tables that define the user in other ways. It's just a thought. Anyway - good luck, and I am sure you will it figure out!
