UI Show and Tell

Kevin McGuire gave a very nice demonstration of Websphere Integration Developer. This led to a lot of discussion on UI trade-offs.

Take aways:

  • Don't put things on the top level menu. Integration Developer used a pallete embedded in the design surface as an alternative to polluting the top level menu.
  • There was good conversation on how we might use animations and / or highlighting to cue users to important items when in a particular view.

Action Items
