Web Application Screen Design and Popup

Hi Experts,

Recently, I am working on  a web application which had the screen designs designed for java SWINGS.

Later, the technology changed from SWINGS to SPRING MVC; but we were asked to use the same screen designs, which were originally designed for SWINGS.

The issues or difficulties we faced are below

1. There are many popups with heavy functionality on it, which we need to manage with javascript.

Please advice, for a web application using Spring MVC, to what extent we can use popups to do functionalities?

If your using spring MVC then java script will support that not an issue !

If ur using spring webflow they have own method to call popup window !

>>>>what extent we can use popups to do
I am not getting this point !!

There are lot of issues if we are having popups with heavy functionalities and switching back and forth between popup and parent windows.

I feel, a good design in a web application can be straight forward by posting the values to the next page and updating it, instead of using popups with heavy functionalities.

its depend on your coding technic only ....

Don't you think, we need to rely on java script at the client end to handle most of the functionality in case of pop-up and parent interactions??

See in my application, I have add, edit update search, delete everything happening in the popup and results needs to be displayed on the parent screen.

I guess, ICICI, HDFC are using popups only to select something from the popup, which is mostly a pre-loader list.

Thats what I am explaining from my first post,

>>>Recently, I am working on  a web application which had the screen designs designed for java SWINGS.

>>>Later, the technology changed from SWINGS to SPRING MVC; but we were asked to use the same screen designs, which were originally designed for SWINGS.

That has nothing to do with the architecture. I guess, it is a very wrong design for a web application to adapt. Thats why I told we need to rely a lot on Java script.

I request you to go through all the posts, understand and reply.
