Thanks, added those suggestions to the wiki.  A majority of Grouper deployers do not use CAS, and I want to leverage the existing “Lite UI” screens so I don’t think we will use Spring.  I think we do have includes for headers and footers, and things should be CSSable, but maybe we can discuss more specifics later on

I’ve got a few requests/suggestions for the new UI:


I’m not sure how many Grouper installers also use JA-SIG CAS, but we do, and I know that it would be helpful for us if the new Grouper UI used the same technologies as that of CAS, namely Spring MVC and Spring Web-Flow.  This would decrease the skill-sets necessary to customize and maintain an identity solution that includes both CAS and Grouper.


It would also be very convenient if the HTML structure was designed so it could be themed using CSS (along the lines of csszengarden) and if the JSP pages used customizable header and footer “includes” built in from the start.

I have ideas for the Grouper UI 2.2 redesign, and I have discussed them with Shilen who will implement it with me.

I will consult with a user experience expert at Penn.  I don’t know how involved people want to be in this, but I will document progress on the wiki.  Here is a preliminary document, if you have suggestions or want to discuss something please edit the doc or let me know.


Check back periodically to the wiki to see how things are progressing… there will also be emails to this list about it…
