Symptoms

Based on integration business requirement – integrate Siebel with external web application: open IE window with target application for first time and then reuse the opened window again for following clicks. (to use named window functionality)

Following steps were used

1) Defining Symbolic URL
Created Symbolic URL to the external application and are using ShowPopup method to open defined Symbolic URL link at defined control in applet.
Result: Link works fine and opens new IE window with target application for every click to control invoking ShowPopup method.

2) Added new fixup

Created new Fixup definition Name: NamedWindow, Link Context: Outside Application, Link Target: BRASIL
We expected to achieve required functionality.
