Hi there,

I have another question:

I don't really understand the hole frame thing.
The document "Jigsaw: An object oriented server" which
explains the evolvement of the design during 1.x is probably
the one that teached me most about how jigsaw is working and
why things are as they are! Unfortunaltely the successor document
"internal design of jigsaw 2.0" does not stand up to the clarity of the
first document.

As a result I don't get the reason behind the separation into resources
and associated frames. Would be very nice if somebody could explain
me why it was changed this way and what is the purpose of this

As all of the frames are named  "frame-0" I looks like this is a
variable local to that
specific resource object. So is it possible to have different resources
linked to
the same frame???

The idea behind this question is to a) bether understand it and b) for a

situation like the following:

If I have lets say 100 gif pictures representing lets assume throughput
graphs of 100 different links during a period of one week. The lifetime
of all of them would be 1 week, until the new graphs are ready.
So having each of the resources linked to the same frame would be a lot
more straight forward, clear and also less resource consumptioning!

This is just an example but I hope you get the idea.

thank you very much
