In this blog I would like to talk about a custom generic class created by me which can be used to handle user actions.In day to day operations in a production environment there are several actions which are performed by the user on a daily basis.This class can be used to consolidate those actions into an application which can be used by the user as a easy navigation tool.Each of these actions can be further divided based on the application area. This class can be typically used in “cockpit” type applications which involve integration of several applications.All the actions required to be performed by the user in each of these applications can be passed on to this class based on the application involved.A docking container containing all the application areas along with the actions is then displayed to the user.The user can click on any action and execute it as per his requirements.
