Hi guys,

I want to know how will you implement a menu in tiles. I have these 4 tiles.

1 = view.header
2 =
3 = view.body
4 = view.footer

but this is my problem. My menu has 4 items and 2 sub items

so if you click on reports it should dynamically update the and display the History and clients link. when you click on these links it should redirect you.

How will i be able to update the menu with out affecting the current jsp page the user is working on??

Please i`m new to this and not sure what to do??

I think you can go with a collapsing tree format of the menu tile. By using this, you should be able to view the submenus in ur menu tile, when the user clicks on "reports".

And you can give the hrefs for all the menu items & the submenu items.

This should surely solve ur problem.

Moving this thread to the Web Application Frameworks forum, since it is about Struts/Tiles.
