[opencms-dev] Having another view to have explorer like functionality

Hi Tarun,

sorry, but this sounds like reinvention of the wheel. Personally I 
prefer navigating files in hierarchical structure with an explorer view. 
  The only alternative I can imagine now is the single window navigation 
under windows. But why would users have access unless they are admins or 
content managers? After all this will be quite some work that will be 
subject to refactoring every time OpenCms API changes (which I think 
will be avoided throughout OpenCms 6.x whenever possible though).

kind regards,
