UII Hosted Application Toolkit (HAT)


Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2013, Dynamics CRM 2015, Dynamics CRM 2016

The Hosted Application Toolkit (HAT) facilitates the task of automating the user interface (UI) of a hosted application. It consists of data-driven adapters (DDA), descriptive bindings, and automations (Windows workflows) to automate the applications. In addition, User Interface Integration (UII) contains the Hosted Application Toolkit (HAT) Software Factory that’s used to create an application hosting solution in Microsoft Visual Studio.

HAT contains tools that can be used to configure hosted applications, such as external, web, or Java applications, and make them available to a UII desktop, such as Unified Service Desk. HAT uses Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) and an extensible UI integration framework to provide application automation for UII. Workflows created for HAT are referred to as automations, and the extensible application framework components are referred to as data-driven adapters (DDAs). UII ships with four DDAs.
