Abstract

Most dynamic web projects use header, left navigation, and body design. Since the page is dynamic, left navigation will be written repeatedly even though the contents are only slightly different. This invention is to introduce a method that can eliminate repeatedly coding of left navigation and use only one source code for the entire project. This will greatly simplify the coding process, and allow the web page design better match the coding design. From the coding design point of view. the code can also be partitioned as 3 parts, such as header.jsp (1 file), leftnav.jsp (1 file) and body.jsp (many files).
