To use a component strategy that is not represented in the current Components panel, extend the logic of the Components panel. This way, the panel can handle new kinds of components.
To add a new component to the Dreamweaver Components panel, locate the available components (in the environment of the user). Then, request descriptions from each component (or parse them if they are written using ASCII files).
Finally, server models such as ASP.NET, JSP/J2EE, or ColdFusion tend to support some, but not all, component types. For example, ASP.NET supports web services but not JavaBeans. Adobe ColdFusion also supports web services and CFCs. When you add a new component type to the Components panel, it must be server-model specific. For example, if a Dreamweaver user is working on a ColdFusion site, CF Components appear in the pop-up menu in the Components panel.
