Subject RE: Portlet (jetspeed 1.3a2) architecture - actions
Date Mon, 28 Jan 2002 20:56:57 GMT
Have you read the Action Event how-to on the Turbine site?  


If so, I recommend you re-ask this question on the jetspeed users list--it's
really more of a "how do I use Jetspeed" question than a "Jetspeed has bugs"
question.  I'm on both lists, and I'll be glad to take a stab and answering
(though I'm pretty green myself).
