Thanks for the response.  Your hunch is right. Sprig Web Flow makes use
of the following:


Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  I will spend some time
trying to see what the wrapping order is, etc.

My hunch is that "dialog:" is not actually really launching the dialog.
As for why, I'd wonder how Spring Web Flow is installing.  My guess is
that it's a NavigationHandler wrapper (is that accurate?)  and if so,
for "dialog:" to magically work you'd have to make sure that the
Trinidad "dialog:"
ViewHandler wrapper wraps the SWF ViewHandler wrapper, not the other way
