Subject RE: Invoking Cocoon actions via JavaScript
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2002 16:32:30 GMT
An interesting twist to utilizing javascript is a new product called
WebFace from Vultus. It is server independent, and uses XML, SOAP, and
javascript to present an incredible client interface. Cocoon actions and
xslt in the sitemap transforming logic to WebFace's xml structures could
be powerful. Downside is is does cost a little, but not bad compared to
other web IDE's. www.vultus.com
