Subject RE: contribution - menuing component
Date Fri, 30 Mar 2001 21:08:47 GMT

Ted Husted has gracially put a copy of my Struts compatible menuing
component on his site at  Thanks Ted.

The basic overview:
Menus can be modeled in an XML file and displayed by JSP via tags.  The
strings used to display the menus in HTML are contained in a properties file
that can be modified (or just use your own custom one).  Customized menu
displayers can be used by implementing the MenuDisplayer interface.
This is in it's early stages and is a work in progress.  Please review the
README for more specific info.
>From my point of view, this is probably more suited for web based
applications as opposed to content driven ones.

Notes about the example:
The example has been internationalized for Russian (with english being the
default).  Just switch your browser language to Russian to see the Russian
prompts.  Unfortunately, I don't have a firm grasp on creating dynamic menus
that are mutli-browser compliant.  So, to see the dynamic menus properly
please use IE 5.0 > (sorry :( ).  I would greatly appreciate some assitence
in the area of dynamic menus.

I've tried to describe most of what's going on in the README.  However,
please feel free to e-mail me/and or the struts list about any specific
questions or comments.
