Subject RE: IFrame portlet code & changes needed to get JSP Layout Mgr+Working customizer
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2002 05:59:18 GMT
Hi Bill,

Great work! I checked in the IFramePortlet, and added it to the registry
along with a sample.
I guess the others should've reviewed it first, but this will make it
easier for them to review.
I guess the getContent method could've used a template, perhaps a future
Btw - please don't use tabs in your editor.

Thanks for fixing the customizer to work in JSP-mode. Great

I usually advise people who want to become a committer, to choose
something to work on, and then make a proposal.
Reading on down below, I see you have already done this. :)

I like the idea. Why do you need 9 TDs per tab?

This sounds great, I'm very interested in learning Flash. 
Do you know if we can we use Flash in open source?

Try to put this into a more formal proposal for the group to read.
Nothing that fancy, see the /proposals directory in the cvs for
Then send it to both the jetspeed-dev and jetspeed-user lists.
