Getting Started


The installation consists of a simple two step process:

  • dropping a jar file into the WEB-INF/lib folder
  • adding a startup servlet to the WEB-INF/web.xml file


The configuration consists of the following:
  • simple servlet init-parameters in the WEB-INF/web.xml file
  • optional webskin.xml file in each skin directory


The framework comes with a set of JSP tags that facilitate easy integration with existing codebase.


The following features make the skin management extremely simple:
  • each skin exists in a self-contained folder, and has an optional configuration file
  • each skin consists of a list of stylesheets, and a set of other resources
  • a skin can extend another skin, selectively overriding resources as needed
  • the skins can be auto-reloaded when the webskin.xml is modified
