Subject RE: Cocoon and Jetspeed portal
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2002 14:07:50 GMT
I have a similar project - I'm stealing a few things from Jetspeed, and building on Cocoon.
I have really spent a lot of time with Jetspeed, and while the concepts are great and thre
is some cool stuff there, I think Coccon is a better framework for a portal.
