Associating Published Applications with File Types
When you publish applications, you can associate the published item with certain file types present in the server’s Windows registry. In addition to associating published applications with file types in the Application Publishing wizard, you can also do this from a published application’s published applications with file types and then assigning the applications to users, you automatically implement the following:
- Content publishing. Users connecting through the Web Interface or using the Program Neighborhood Agent open content published on servers with applications published on servers. For example, you publish a Microsoft Word document. When you also publish the Microsoft Word application, associate it with a list of file types (files with the .doc extension, for example), and assign it to a group of users, the published content is opened in the Microsoft Word application published on the server.
- Content redirection from client to server. Users running the Program Neighborhood Agent open all files of an associated type encountered in locally running applications with applications published on the server. For example, when users double-click email attachments encountered in an application running locally, the attachment opens in an application that is published on the server, associated with the corresponding file type, andassigned to the user.
