Subject RE: Dynamic extension of web apps
Date Thu, 08 Jul 2004 22:11:03 GMT
So, basically, you're thinking of letting them drop in a whole new webapp that will
walk them through the configuration of their device?
If so.. then that's what I'd do... bundle a war up and drop it in.  Then have an indexing
application provide access to that war.  Maybe even load the war through the index.  There
are
security risks of course, and rather severe ones with allowing anyone to drop a war file and
have it activated.
Other then that.. I don't know of any easy solution.
