Configuring the Domino OpenSocial component
The Domino® OpenSocial component adds social and web features to make third-party processes available directly in the client user's mail. The OpenSocial component supports embedded experiences in the Notes® client, including OpenSocial Gadgets in the sidebar, pop-ups, and tabs.

The OpenSocial component is deployed and configured on two server components: a Domino mail server, and another Domino server running Shindig, both with the OpenSocial component installed. In addition, the Domino mail server hosts the widgets catalog, and the Domino server running Shindig hosts the credential store application. You can deploy these two components either on a single Domino server or on two separate Domino servers; but, clustering is not supported.
