We are working on a We Based Java application prototype for
a customer using WS and would like to know what options are
available for creating Tabs - where an end user can select
from different tabs to access different application screens
comprising datawindows and controls.


The application will comprise a main screen with several
tabs across the tope each tab containing different data
entry/informational screens with information where the user
can select/view:

1. Demographic Information
2. Individual Loan Applicant Income
3. Past Loans History
4. Other information

Can you give us some guidance on this. This is really an
aesthetic question but will help us a great deal in
understanding how to go about our final solution design in
the best way possible.

Thanks

Jim

Sybase WorkSpace doesn't provide HTML based tabs, because it's so
readily available in open-source.

I use the open-source project called TabberTab
(http://www.barelyfitz.com/projects/tabber/). This package takes care
of all the rendering problems and layout issues with tabs. All you have
to do is define the tab names, and tell it what goes in each tab.

I like it because it requires only two additional lines in your HTML.
One line defines the entire tab set. The other line defines a single
tab. Just put the rest of your HTML/JSF code inside the wrapping tag,
and the tabs show up automatically.
