Subject Re: Quick development of jsp pages in Admin Console
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2008 10:09:55 GMT

I was trying to edit this page- but it says I
do not have permission to edit it. Also, I experimented a little with
inPlace deployment but couldn't get it to work for plancreator and I think
the method described above is useful for admin console webapps. Can someone
else document this method ?
