Subject Re: how can I invoke a Tile Definition directly from the browser
Date Fri, 19 Jul 2002 09:29:31 GMT


  This is the way to go. Remember that Tiles definition's names are 
logical names. They can't be used directly as URL.

  You can also use a struts action taking the definition's name as 
request parameter. The action then insert the requested tiles. Such 
action already exist in Tiles sources
