In my static HTML page, I am doing the below.

But it is not displaying anything in place of the iframe. do I need to do something else as well for iframe to work.


<div class="portlet-content">
   <iframe width="100%" height="100%" name="fr1"
		  src="admin.html" > eeeeee</iframe> 
   <iframe width="100%" height="100%" name="fr1"
	  src="http://localhost:8080/cobs/component/cob_doc_import?gbURL=www.google.com" > </iframe>  
</div>

iframes do not work properly anymore

http://www.w3schools.com/TAGS/tag_iframe.asp

you need to use a different approach and that is use a template in dw and use a copy of the template instead of a i-frame as I tried it but it causes all kinds of problems and you'll find more benefits using templates

>> iframes do not work properly anymore

This is not entirely true.  iframes are still supported by all major browsers but each browser does place some security on what can be passed through an iframe.  Additionally, some security software scans for and blocks hidden iframes as that is a common vector for malware transmission.  But a plain old iframe displaying a page from a site works fine 99 times out of 100.

I think your problem is more likely here:

http://localhost:8080/cobs/component/cob_doc_import?gbURL=www.google.com

Whatever is supposed to be happening with that component locally, isn't.

Within the HTML page, I need to display some information from a component which is deployed on another App server.

The component displays fine when accessed independently but does not display anything when accessed from within iFrame of an HTML page.

Please let me know how to proceed.
