Subject RE: Cocoon Portal - Tabbed layout and Radio integration
Date Mon, 06 May 2002 06:49:21 GMT
IMHO the problem with most portal layout's is that if you have multiple
"portlets" open and one is changed, the complete page has to be refreshed.
Depending on the functionality and the possibility of caching, this can be
very time consuming.

Gartner had a site that solved this by having portlets in a single "layer"
(I am not a HTML expert, but I think this is what it's called). It looked
great, all portlets could be dragged to the location at which you want to
have them and they really looked like child windows.

Did you ever look at a layout like this to use in Cocoon? (I am sorry I
cannot find a link with a sample, it was one of the customizable gartner
sites you have to login to. Maybe some one knows what I mean).

Michael.
