The QlikView documents are not just the script, but also the optimized cloud of data and the presentation layer. The entire document is loaded into memory by the server and then clients interface with this optimized version of the data.
Publisher is used to schedule reloads of data and distribute the documents to the server or directly to clients in the form of reduced QlikView documents or other formats like pdf.
The publisher license is not required to schedule basic reloads, but is needed to perform more complicated file handling and distribution.
Here's a link to the QlikView Server Reference Manual http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-1791.
You can also get documentation for anything QlikView from the download server http://global.qlik.com/download/.
I've seen local QlikView documents don't relaod any data from the source, it means douments store data, presentation layer and script, as you explained.
I can store many of the QlikView documents, share them with clients, and users (checking permissions first) can manage data source of the document, editing the presentation layer and the script, is it correct?
I read server is like a repository, so users know who edited what.
I will read the docs you linked, but I have the last question: may I use webservice as data source? the script uses the uri and the method to load data (a stream xml, or csv, etc).
Thank you very much.
