What will happen when a user access a QVW from Access point ?

Hi All,

I am curious to know the exact flow of what will happen when a user try to access  Qlikview application (QVW) from access point.

I mean in terms of the following

(1) Authentication

(2) Authorization

(3) Data transfer from server to user browser

(4) what will happen when user change selection

(5) what will happen another user access the same QVW file. Will server maintains two copies in its RAM ?

(6) What will happen when user closes the QVW from access point

(7)  If QVW size is 1GB.Will all the data loaded in to user browser first time


         only data related to default selection will be loaded into User browser ?

Can you please help me out ?

Thanks in advance,

1 & 2 See QlikView Security Video Series (1 of 8): An Overview

3. In the ajax client only html is send to the client.

4. The selection is send to the server which recalculates the charts and the webpage is refreshed in the ajax client

5. Each user will get a session in which selection states and such are kept, separate from other users. The server will maintain only one copy of the qvw document in RAM. So each user adds some RAM overhead to that needed for the qvw document itself.

6. The user session will end.

7. The ajax client will only show the html page that was send by the server. It will not need to load any other data than what is necessary to render the html page on screen. All the calculations are done on the server.

talk is cheap, supply exceeds demand
