Subject RE: Offtopic: Dynamic Menus and struts?
Date Mon, 28 Jul 2003 16:25:43 GMT
I'm looking at the very same thing right now. Struts-menu (a seperate Struts
helper package) takes care of all the javascript stuff.

It does have built in support for permissions based display, but I don't
know if supports truly dynamic (i.e. defined in the database) menus - any
ideas anyone?

Subject: Offtopic: Dynamic Menus and struts?

Hi we are developing an application with struts and tiles, and we'd like one
of our tiles to contain a menu that is rendered everytime the page is
loaded.  And the menus that the user can see are based on what permissions
he has access to.  So we were thinking of using Javascript to do the menu
(only other way I know of is an applet).  But we have a couple fundamental
problems, #1 how to get the permissions from the session object into a
javascript function, and how to get the menu data to the javascript
functions, in the form of an xml file or otherwise.  Has anyone else tackled
something of the sort?  Any help/expertise extremely appreciated.
