Porting Legacy Plugins to Jive Cloud – coming soon to a JiveWorld near you

FG SQUARED is presenting at JiveWorld 14… with customer National Instruments.
Presentation Title: Porting legacy plug-ins to Jive Cloud
With thousands of users and tens of thousands of pieces of Jive content, National Instruments needed a way to manage, and keep up-to-date, sales and marketing materials for a sales force serving over 35,000 companies in nearly 50 countries around the globe. They ended up developing a robust, hierarchical content bookmarking plug-in, that targeted version 5 of the Jive platform – and their users loved it!
When National Instruments decided to migrate to a cloud-hosted instance of Jive 7, their mission-critical “Clusters” app needed to go with it. NI worked alongside FG SQUARED, to port and enhance the “Clusters” app. Now they are going to share some of what they learned along the way…
This talk is a deep dive into some of the technical challenges you might encounter when porting legacy Jive plug-ins to run on the latest Jive platform. Some of the topics discussed will include:

  • Authentication and authorization using OAuth and OSAPI
  • Refactoring plug-ins to run out-of-process by leveraging Jive’s REST and JavaScript APIs
  • Constraints of running in an IFRAME
  • Data migration
  • Tools, tips, and tricks for debugging
  • Cross-domain security issues
  • Installing and updating add-ons
  • Creating single-page applications (SPAs) in Jive using AngularJS
