Newbie: start a widget

Hi there,

I'm completely new to widgets, and my question will look like a silly one, but here it is:

How can I start a widget?

It looks like SAP Widget Foundation has been successfully installed on my computer, and I also started a JCO instance (and connection test was successful)

But: when I download a Widget, I get a .widget file. What am I supposed to do with this file? I can't either uncompress it nor start it with JRE.

So? Where's the trick?

Thanks and best regards,
