You can use Adobe LiveCycle Workspace ES as a Web Part in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007). Users can access LiveCycle Workspace ES by connecting to your SharePoint Server using a web browser to provide a unified experience. You will learn the basic steps to display LiveCycle Workspace ES as a Web Part in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. You may want to perform the steps described in this article to provide a unified experience so that users connecting to your SharePoint server can access LiveCycle Workspace ES from the same port.

Steps to integrate LiveCycle Workspace ES with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007:

The following steps are to integrate LiveCycle Workspace ES into a Web Part:

  1. In a web browser, navigate to the SharePoint site where you want to add a Web Part, such as http://[myMOSSserver]:44299/default.aspx where [myMOSSserver] represents an example default location.

    Note: 44299 is the default port number for SharePoint Server. The port number depends on your installation of SharePoint Server.

  2. On the upper-right side of the web page, click Site Actions and select Edit Page.
  3. Click one of the Add a Web Part buttons. You may see one or more Add a Web Part buttons, depending on the layout you chose when you created your Web Part.
  4. In the Add Web Parts -- Webpage Dialog dialog box, under Miscellaneous (you may need to scroll down to see it), select Page Viewer Web Part and then click Add.
  5. In the Page Viewer Web Part box, click edit and select Modify Shared Web Part.

    Note: The Page Viewer Web Part box appears under the Add a Web Part button that you clicked in step 3 as shown in the following illustration (Figure 1):

  1. On the Page Viewer page, perform the following tasks:
    • In the Link box, type the URL of Workspace ES, such as http://[LCServer]:8080/workspace where [LCServer] represents the location of the LiveCycle ES server.
    • Click Appearance and modify the height, width, and title so that you can see the entire Workspace ES user interface. For example, you can set a height and width of 6 inches and 11 inches, respectively.
    • Click Test Link. A new web browser window should appear with Workspace ES displayed.
    • (Optional) Click Layout and modify the layout of Workspace ES in the Web Part.
    • (Optional) Click Advanced and modify other settings, such as the description and whether Workspace ES can be minimized or closed in the Web Part.
    • Click Apply.
  2. Click Exit Edit Mode and verify that you can access Workspace ES.

After you complete the above steps, your SharePoint site should look similar to the following illustration (Figure 2):
