Adding Data Browser (Databrowser) as a task view item

Has anyone tried to add databrowser launch from a task view? I understand that it is normally accessed either via fastpath or from an app, but I am trying to determine if I can launch it from a task ID. I've toyed around a little with launch it outright from a task ID created as a URL and then just supply the databrowser URL to the task ID and it will launch fine... but that goes out the window when the client has more than one web server. Ideally I would like to be able to launch it and pass it what I want it to open (a business view, table + environment, w/e). Any thoughts on this are appreciated!

The below information we got from the document : E1: SOLEXP: Frequently Asked Questions on adding Various Types of Tasks in Solution Explorer (Doc ID 1538291.1) --> Question 2: How to add a Task for Data Browser?

The Data Browser is available beginning with the EnterpriseOne Tools Release 8.94. To create a task for the Data Browser, you can add a new Task of URL Task Type and type in the URL

Example:

http://<ServerName>:<port>/jde/DataBrowser.mafService?e1.mode=view&e1.namespace=&RENDER_MAFLET=E1Menu&e1.service=DataBrowser&e1.state=maximized
Follow the steps below to add Data Browser to a Task under a Task View:

1. Log in to a Windows, Fat client.
2. In the Solution Explorer screen, click on the Menu Design Mode.
3. Navigate to the folder where you want to place the Data Browser Task.
4. Right click on the desired folder and select "Insert New Task...".
5. In the Task Revisions form, fill in the Task Name, system code, jargon, etc. In the Executable Tab, select the URL radio button and fill up the web client URL to the Databrowser (Example: http://<ServerName>:<port>/jde/DataBrowser.mafService?e1.mode=view&e1.namespace=&RENDER_MAFLET=E1Menu&e1.service=DataBrowser&e1.state=maximized)

Note : The URL for the Data Browser has to be hard coded to the task. It cannot compose the different URLs for different JAS instances.

6. Click Ok to save.

7. Bounce the Web Services or refresh Menu Cache and retest on web client.

For EnterpriseOne releases prior to 8.11 in which Data Browser is not available, you will need to create a custom application to launch the URL for the Data Browser and create a task for this new application. Review the attached document (App_To_Launch_Data_Browser.doc) for an example to launch the Data Browser from an application

First of all, thank you for your response! That was about the only way I could find that worked. My only concern in regards to the solution is that our system is setup in such a way that a load balancer exists in front of our two web servers, so, you may get distributed to a server you are not already connected to. This would throw a wrench in things I assume. Is there a way around it?

For non cluster setup this is the perfect solution !

Data browser is not P* application and we think when you enter "databrowser" in FastPath, Data browser screen will be open from JAS foundation code, May be you can try to play around with JAS code or check in cluster level you can do something to achieve your requirement.

FYI : You can also execute the Data Browser by opening any application --> Tools --> Databrowser
