Hi, All. I understand how to import content from an external url, but is there a simple way to emulate portal-like behavior? For example, consider I have a global navigation and links and I'd like the links to open up in a center container, so when I click say,, the page content is displayed in the center container. Now so far so good, but when I click on a link in the content, I leave the page.

I suppose the simple question is, just how do portals like PHPNuke deliver external content and remain in the portal environment while the user navigates the external content (e.g. iframe-like behavior)? Is this easily implemented with JSP/Servlets?
It's never done THAT before. Explain it to me tiny ad:
