    Default web application migration from IE6 to IE7

    Hi,

    I have a requirement wherein I need to migrate my web applications (this includes EJB and non-EJB applications) from Internet Explorer 6.0 to Internet Explorer 7.0. The web applications are basically Struts (Ver 1.1) based applications.

    Can anyone help me in identifying what all areas should I look for that could be impacted because of this browser version migration?

    Currently as of now what I can come up with is the impact of the java script codes (like window.open might open a new tab instead of new window in IE7 where as in IE6 it opens a new window).

    And since IE 7 has tabbing functionality,has it got anything to do with the user sessions since in IE 6 opening a new window establishes a new user session.

    Can some one help me how to approach in my analysis for this?

    Thanks

    Not really a Java question.

    As far as I know it's mostly backwards compatible. I believe IE7 is still one session per window.

    How abt the impacted area in the code... like the one I mentioned inthe post abt java script stuff..

    Currently as of now what I can come up with is the impact of the java script codes (like window.open might open a new tab instead of new window in IE7 where as in IE6 it opens a new window).

    Can some one suggest some other such area that I should look for?

    As you mentioned, javascript is an obvious area to examine closely. CSS files are probably even worse off than javascripts when migrating from ie6 to ie7, and will prolly need a lot of tuning. Your html might also need some tweaking, but that should only be minor.

    Where I work we use Wicket in the presentation layer, not JSP (as I would suspect you do, as you mentioned EJB), so I can't really help you with wether you need to change something in java code, though I doubt that is necessary.

    But as OrangeDog said, this isn't really a Java question - you will probably get more relevant help in a javascript/html/css forum
