Hi everyone,

I would like to seek your advice, whether the following approach to implement partial page refresh using subviews is correct.

This is the main jsf page that holds a menu subview and a content subview:

The uncompleted menu.jsp in /modules/menu/pages folder looks something like this:

And the value of url in the c:import tag in contentForm is determined at the managed beans.

Basically the intention is to refresh only the content in

and keep the menu unrefreshed (partial page refresh).

Is this a correct approach?

* I noticed that this approach has a drawback where I will lose control of the navigation using the browser's Back and Forward buttons.
