Subject RE: RowColumnControllerAction v.s. MultiColumnControllerAction
Date Mon, 30 Sep 2002 07:35:44 GMT
RowColumnController handles a single row or column of content depending
on its setting (remember Motif ? :). Since there's a sequence to manage,
it uses only the "position" attribute of portlet to order it within the
sequence.

MultiColumnController handles a compsite layout with multiple columns, thus
it uses coordinates constraints (row and column attributes) to layout its
content. It's much closer to a grid layout except that it actually outputs
several HTML columns instead of putting each portlet into a single cell as
a grid would do.

So in summary 
RomColumnControllerAction = suitable for controller doing layout based on a 
                            single dimension (position)
MultiColumnControllerAction = suitable for controller doing layout on planar
                              coordinates (row and column coordinates)

Does that answer your question ?
