Hi there, For those interested, some online demos are avilable : 1/ WebFacets demo : profile-driven UI rendering (associated docs) 2/ ReflectionFacets demo : automatic rendering of Java Objects using reflection (associated docs) WebFacets has already been used in several in-prod mall/mid-sized intranets. Hence the "production ready" statement in the original post... ReflectionFacets is a prototype and an associated developement methodology I'm currently working on, so see it as a "playground" for ideas. Enjoy, and don't hesitate to post your comments. Remi PS : demos are hosted on an old PIII in my office, so it might be a bit slow...
