1.5 The Presentation Layer

What is the Presentation Layer?

The following diagram shows the path from a Webroutine to the "glass" of the device the user is looking at. The Presentation Layer consists of everything to the right of the Webroutine box.

When the Webroutine ends, field and working list data (as defined on *output and *both Web Maps) is written out to an XML document. This is merged with the XSL generated for the User Interface (including the XSL of any Weblets being used) and then transformed into a document that is displayed to the user (in this instance, a web page in the form of XHTML).
