I'm working on a website which will use an external database for displaying content.
Like I'm used in SharePoint I would like to create a widget (webpart) to just display data retrieved from that external database (via a web service). The layout will be defined by views in my widget (module?).
After searching a while I came to the conclusion that all documentation regarding widgets talk about creating content parts, migrations etc.
Do I have to create a content part and stuff to be able to add my widget to a zone?
