Jazz Web application problem in Notes 8 "Hannover" embedded

I don't know if any of you have used the Jazz Web application in the Notes
8 embedded browser (using IE 7 under the cover). Well, I did and it
doesn't work - the loading of the page never completes unfortunately.

Here is what it looks like:

I know the Jazz Web application works fine with a stand-alone IE 7 and
this must be coming from Hannover, but I can't find the origin of the
problem - I couldn't find anyone on the Lotus side who had the problem
before with any other application).
I'm not opening a Defect for it as it's not said this should work but I
still think it should be fixed as many of our users - project managers for
example - will spend quite a lot of time in Notes and won't understand why
they can't use it for Jazz.

Thank you for help.

For what it is worth, I observed the same bahvior with Firefox 1. It went
away when I switched to Firefox 2.

Jean-Yves,

We have never tried running the Jazz web UI from within Notes 8 and I
haven't seen anything similar in the Notes 7 embedded browser (which isn't
supported, but works) or any of our supported browsers (Firefox 1.5/2, IE
6/7).

I have created defect 15529 to track this. To help debug this problem it
would be great if you could:

- confirm the exact version of IE that is being used
- look for error logs, messages, etc

I will look for opportunities to upgrade to Notes 8 and will explore
further if I'm able to do so.

Hello William,

Thank you for your response.
I tried to find any sort log reporting the problem but failed.
Just to let you know the IE 7 version I'm currently using is 7.0.5730.11.
I also reported the problem to the Hannover dev team in case they can tell
me any limitation in the embedded browser they're aware of. and as soon as
I get an answer, I'll post it (here and in the Work Item).

Ta, JY

I've been told Notes 8 M3 may have still little problems, so I should try
using Lotus Expeditor Client (client base of Notes 8) instead. So I tried,
and the Jazz Web application works pretty well there as you can show on
the attached image.
I will let the Notes dev team know it's fine & we'll just have to wait
untill the M4 then.
Sorry for that and thank you for your time William.
JY

Jean-Yves,

Works fine for me under Notes 8.0.1 but I am running Fedora 8 Linux so
it is Embedded Firefox under the Hood.
