can somebody explain me the concept behind Object Based
Navigation, please? Couldn't find any step by step
how-to / tutorial.
I know how to assign operations to business objects,
and iViews to operations etc, but am not sure what
to do after the assignments have been set? I do not
understand the idea. How can I use OBN on the pages
displayed on the portal?
For example, should OBN be used when implementing
master-detail portlets (e.g. list of customers in
the master iView, and a list of customer's orders in
the detail iView)? If so, what to do after setting
up business objects, operations, and assigning
iViews to operations? How to link the detail iView
to the master iView? How to pass parameters between
Also, if I am wrong, and the OBN is not meant for
implementation of master-detail iViews, how can
I create such iViews (assuming I want to avoid
implementing them from scratch in Java). Is it
possible to create such iViews using only the Query
iView or JDBC Stored Procedure iView without any
Many thanks for any help.
