Length: Long Talk

Target Level: Intermediate

Target Audience: Integrator, Developer

Under Mosaic and its JavaScript-based editor, there is a whole powerful layout ecosystem making Diazo, portlets and viewlets almost obsolete.

This talk is about the building blocks of Mosaic: layouts, tiles, slots, and panels.

After I used Mosaic blocks myself in a project with twelve sites I trained two customer teams to use it.

The talk will include with an overview.

I will show how to build and integrate layouts, how to write a simple reusable tile and use it in the layout.

I will go more into the detail of what happens behind the scenes, such as subrequests and transform chains.

There will be time for a short QA-session.
