Subject Re: Plans on Forms block
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2007 14:52:59 GMT
Hi Grek, hi Jeremy,

Some thoughts on my side:
- Normally a Cocoon user doesn't have much contact with Dojo, iirc
effects and drag'n'drop.
- As a Cocoon application has to be revised switching from 2.1 to 2.2
either, Dojo changes might be checked, too.
- It would be helpful if Dojo is integratable into Cocoon in a more
standard way i.e. no (or at least at a minimum) differences to the
standard Djo distribution as necessary.
As a non-commiting reader I would be glad to see these thoughts taken
into account.


P.S. to Grek: As there hasn't been an answer to
[] I
still don't see the disadvantages of Ajax to prefer a fat-client over it :-?
