We don't currently have support for this feature, but I think there  
are several solutions that will require some coding that come to mind:

1. adding new functionality to Jetspeed links to support proxying the  
content through the Jetspeed server (much like how we proxy content  
with IFrames and Web Content portlets in the trunk today)
2. instead of using links, using existing SSO IFrames, to navigate to  
the content. Implement a new feature to then "detach" the iframed  
window via a new action on the portlet decorator
3. a completely new feature: using hidden iframes to login users (will  
require https ) transparently upon clicking on a link

Related to #2, we are looking into a new desktop maximize mode that  
would effectively give a window 'full maximization' meaning that it  
will take up the entire browser window, including removing headers.  
this is still under development though

Suggest that you create a JIRA issue if you would like to see this new
