Description

  The present invention relates to a server device and a portal page generation method.

  Conventionally, in a portal system, it is widely known that a plurality of small screens called portlets are arranged on a single screen called a portal page to display a business system, a Web page, or the like.

  As such a portal system, in order to secure a display area and operability, a display device has been proposed that provides a maximized display in which a predetermined portlet is enlarged and displayed on the entire portal page in accordance with a user operation ( For example, see Patent Document 1).

  Furthermore, as another feature of the portal system, it is possible to edit the portal page according to the user's preference, such as adding portlets and changing the layout, and a server that provides a personal customization function that maintains a user-specific portal page Devices have also been proposed. The edited contents are reflected only on the user, and other users are not affected. Using this function, each user adds information necessary for himself as a portlet. On the other hand, apart from user-specific editing, the system administrator etc. displays important information that the user wants to convey to the user, and by setting the portal page so that personal customization is not possible, such as making the portlet unusable Necessary information can also be presented to all users who use it.

  As such a portal system, an information device that divides a portal page to set a display area and partially maximizes the area is proposed (for example, see Patent Document 2).

  However, in the display device of Patent Document 1 and the information device of Patent Document 2, when the portlet is maximized, other portlets are hidden without being displayed, or only the title of the portlet is displayed. However, there is a problem that the advantage of the portal system that can acquire a plurality of information and can work while confirming them is lost.

  In addition, in the case of the personal customization function, if the maximized display method that enlarges and displays the above-mentioned portlet on the entire portal page is used, the portlet placed by the user or the important information that the system administrator wants to convey to the user is displayed. Portlets that are hidden by the maximized display of other portlets may be overlooked.

  The present invention has been made in consideration of the above points, and proposes a server device and a portal page generation method that can significantly improve the user-friendliness.

  In order to solve such a problem, the present invention is a server device that fixedly displays a portlet of a portal page displayed on a display unit of a client device and a layout area that is an area for configuring the layout of the portlet. A fixed display information management unit that stores fixed display information for managing whether or not a maximum display request for maximizing and displaying a predetermined portlet is received from the client device; Based on the fixed display information of other portlets and the layout area, the non-fixed display portlets other than the maximized display portlet are minimized and moved, and the fixed display portlets other than the maximized display portlet are displayed. A table of portlets that move and remain maximized A maximizable area calculation unit that calculates a maximizable area that is a possible area, and a portlet that displays the maximized area in the maximizable area calculated by the maximizable area calculation unit. A portal page generating unit that generates and transmits the generated portal page display information to the client device.

  The present invention also relates to a portal page generation method, in which a fixed display information management unit is a portal page portlet displayed on a display unit of a client device, and a layout area for configuring a layout of the portlet A first step of storing fixed display information for managing whether or not the fixed display is performed in the storage unit, and a maximizable display request for the maximizable area calculation unit to maximize and display a predetermined portlet from the client device. When received, based on the fixed display information of other portlets stored in the storage unit and the layout area, the non-fixed portlets other than the maximized display portlet are minimized and moved, and the maximum While moving the fixed display portlet other than the fixed display portlet, A second step of calculating a maximizable area, which is a displayable area of the portlet to be maximized, and a portal page generation unit that includes the maximum maximal area calculated by the maximizable area calculation unit; And a third step of generating the portal page by arranging the portlets to be displayed and transmitting the generated portal page display information to the client device.

  Therefore, in order to maximize the specified portlet while leaving the necessary information in the portal page, to ensure user operability while retaining the advantages of the portal system that can work on the same screen while checking multiple information Can do.

  In addition, each user, system administrator, etc. can set the area where the display is fixed, so that not only the user can leave the relevant information during work but also the necessary information set by the system administrator. It can be delivered to the user without being hidden by the portlet maximizing display operation.

The personal customization fixed display information 241 manages whether the portlets A to G and the layout areas 13 to 15 of the portal page 12 are fixedly displayed based on the user's personal customization. For example, in FIG. 5, the personal customization fixed display information 241 is managed so that portlet C is fixedly displayed, and portlets A to B, portlets D to G, and layout areas 13 to 15 are not fixedly displayed.

  FIG. 6 is a diagram illustrating the maximized fixed display information 261. The maximized fixed display information 261 manages whether or not the portlets A to G and the layout areas 13 to 15 of the portal page 12 are fixedly displayed based on the portal page fixed display information 231 and the personal customization fixed display information 241. For example, since the layout area 13 of the portal page fixed display information 231 is fixedly displayed and the portlet C of the personal customization fixed display information 241 is fixedly displayed, in FIG. 6, the personal customization fixed display information 241 is the portlet C and the layout. The area 13 is fixedly displayed, and the portlets A to B, the portlets D to G, and the layout areas 14 to 15 are managed not to be fixedly displayed.

(Fixed display setting process)
FIG. 7 is a flowchart showing a fixed display setting process procedure of the portal server device 3 of the present embodiment.

  The client device 2 executes the browser 11 in accordance with the user's operation, and when one of the portlets A to G and the layout areas 13 to 15 on the portal page 12 is selected, designation of fixed display or fixed display cancellation is performed. For example, the client device 2 arranges buttons for fixed display setting in the portlets A to G and the layout areas 13 to 15, and designates the fixed display when the button is pressed once according to the operation of the user. When is pressed again, fixed display release is specified. When the fixed display setting is completed in accordance with the user operation, the client device 2 transmits a fixed display setting request to the portal server device 3.

  The fixed display setting reception unit 21 of the portal server device 3 receives a fixed display setting request from the client device 2 (step SP1). Subsequently, the fixed display setting reception unit 21 transmits the received fixed display setting request to the fixed display information management unit 22.

  Subsequently, the fixed display information management unit 22 confirms the received fixed display setting request and checks whether or not the user's operation is an operation for the portal page 12 for personal customization (step SP2). When the user operation is not an operation for the portal page 12 for personal customization (step SP2: NO), the fixed display information management unit 22 sets the fixed display setting information of the fixed display setting request as the portal page fixed display information 231. Is stored in the portal page information storage unit 23 (step SP3), and then the fixed display setting process shown in FIG. 7 is terminated. On the other hand, when the user operation is an operation for the portal page 12 for personal customization (step SP2: YES), the fixed display information management unit 22 personalizes the fixed display setting information of the fixed display setting request. The fixed display information 241 is stored in the portal page information storage unit 23 (step SP3), and then the fixed display setting process shown in FIG. 7 is terminated.

(Maximized display processing)
8 and 9 are flowcharts showing the maximized display processing procedure of the portal server device 3 of this embodiment. The maximized display of the portlet is roughly divided into two processes depending on whether or not the layout area including the portlet to be maximized is designated for fixed display.

  First, an embodiment when the layout area including the portlet to be maximized is not designated to be fixedly displayed will be described. 10 to 13 are conceptual diagrams for explaining display control of the portal page 12 when the layout area including the portlet to be maximized is not designated for fixed display.

  The client device 2 executes the browser 11 according to the user's operation, and designates the maximized display when any of the portlets A to G on the portal page 12 is selected. For example, the client apparatus 2 arranges buttons for maximizing display in the portlets A to G, and specifies the maximized display when the button is pressed. When the client device 2 designates a portlet to be maximized in accordance with a user operation, the client device 2 transmits a maximized display request to the portal server device 3. In the present embodiment, the client apparatus 2 designates the maximized display of the portlet D. In this embodiment, only portlet C is fixedly designated in advance.

  The maximized display operation accepting unit 25 of the portal server device 3 accepts a maximized display request from the client device 2 (step SP11). Subsequently, the fixed display setting reception unit 21 transmits the received maximized display request to the maximizable area calculation unit 26.

  Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 transmits a maximization fixed display information acquisition request for acquiring the fixed display setting of the layout area including the portlet to be maximized to the fixed display information management unit 22 to maximize the fixed display. Information 261 is acquired (step SP12).

  Here, the priority order of the portal page fixed display information 231 can be determined as a setting for each portal page 12 by a user, a system administrator, or the like. For example, when priority is given to the portal page fixed display information 231, information that the system administrator or the like wants to inform the user can be provided without being hidden by the maximized display of the portlet, and the personal customization fixed display information 241 is prioritized. Has the advantage of increasing the degree of user customization with respect to maximizing the portlet.

  Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 confirms the acquired maximized fixed display information 261 and checks whether or not the layout area including the portlet to be maximized is designated for fixed display (step SP13). When the layout area including the portlet to be maximized is not designated for fixed display (step SP13: NO), the maximizable area calculation unit 26 proceeds to step SP14 and includes the portlet to be maximized. If the layout area is designated for fixed display (step SP13: YES), the process proceeds to step 18.

  In this embodiment, since the layout area 14 including the portlet D is not designated for fixed display, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 proceeds to step SP14. That is, the maximizable area calculation unit 26, among the acquired maximal fixed display information 261, portlets and layout areas other than the portlet to be maximized and displayed (here, portlets A to C, E to G, and layout areas 13 to The fixed display information of 15) is confirmed (step SP14).

  Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 selects a portlet that is not designated for fixed display other than the portlet to be maximized and for which the layout area including the portlet is not designated for fixed display as well. In the lower part of the screen, a minimized display in which only the title of the portlet is displayed is moved (step SP15). In this embodiment, since the maximizable area calculation unit 26 is not designated to be fixedly displayed except for portlet C, portlets A, B, and E to G are minimized and displayed at the bottom of the portal page 12 as shown in FIG. To move.

  Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 moves a portlet designated for fixed display other than the portlet to be maximized while fixing the display area to the top of the portal page 12 (step SP16). In this embodiment, since the portlet C is designated for fixed display, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 moves the portlet C to the upper part of the portal page 12 with the display area fixed as shown in FIG.

  Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 calculates an area 41 (referred to as a maximizable area) that can display a rectangle except for the display area of the moved portlet (step SP17). In this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 11, the maximizable area 41 is a rectangle (maximizable areas 41A and 41B) in which four sides of each side of the area 42 excluding the display area of the moved portlet are in contact with each other. ). Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 generates a change page including information on the calculated maximizable area 41 and information on the moved portlets (here, portlets A, B, C, and E to G). It transmits to the part 28.

  Subsequently, the portal page generation unit 28 actually changes the arrangement on the portal page 12 based on the received change information, as shown in FIG. Subsequently, the portal page generation unit 28 checks whether or not there are a plurality of maximizable areas 41 based on the information of the maximizable area 41 in the received change information (step SP22). Then, when there are not a plurality of maximizable areas 41 (step SP22: NO), the portal page generating unit 28 proceeds to step SP21, while when there are a plurality of maximizable areas 41 (step SP22: YES). , Go to Step 25.

  In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 11, since there are a plurality of maximizable areas 41A and 41B, the portal page generating unit 28 proceeds to step SP25. That is, the portal page generation unit 28 generates the portal page 12 by arranging the selectable display so that the maximizable areas 41A and 41B can be selected as shown in FIG. 12 (step SP25). The generated portal page display information is transmitted to the client device 2 (step SP26). Here, for the selectable display, for example, as shown in FIG. 12, a plurality of maximizable areas 41A and 41B are displayed in an overlapping manner, and the maximizable areas 41A and 41B are selected by the user.

  Subsequently, when receiving the maximizable area selection request (step SP27), the portal page generation unit 28 arranges the portlet to be maximized in the selected area and generates the portal page 12 again (step SP28). The portal page display information thus transmitted is transmitted to the client device 2 (step SP29).

  In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 13, upon receiving the maximizable area selection request for selecting the maximizable area 41A, the portal page generating unit 28 again displays the portal page 12 in which the portlet D is maximized and arranged. The generated portal page display information is transmitted to the client device 2.

  In this way, the portal server device 3 can perform the maximized display of the designated portlet (here, portlet D) without changing the display area of necessary information (here, portlet C). . Further, in the portal server device 3, if the fixed display designation of necessary information (here, portlet C) is made by the system administrator, the information desired to be notified by the system administrator is designated without being hidden. A maximized display of a portlet (here, portlet D) can be performed.

  Next, a description will be given of an embodiment in which a layout area including a portlet to be maximized is designated for fixed display. 14 to 17 are conceptual diagrams for explaining display control of the portal page 12 when the layout area including the portlet to be maximized is designated to be fixedly displayed.

  When the client device 2 executes the browser 11 and any one of the portlets A to G on the portal page 12 is selected according to the user's operation, the client device 2 designates the maximized display. When the client device 2 designates a portlet to be maximized in accordance with a user operation, the client device 2 transmits a maximized display request to the portal server device 3. In this embodiment, the client device 2 designates the maximized display of the portlet G. In the present embodiment, only the layout area 15 is designated for fixed display in advance.

  Steps SP11 to SP13 are the same as described above, and a description thereof will be omitted.

  In this embodiment, since the layout area 14 including the portlet D is not designated for fixed display, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 proceeds to step SP18. That is, the maximizable area calculation unit 26, except the maximized display portlet in the area of the layout area (here, the layout area 15) including the portlet to be maximized among the acquired maximized fixed display information 261. The fixed display information of these portlets (here, portlets E and F) is confirmed (step SP18).

  Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 displays, in the layout area area, portlets that are not designated for fixed display other than the maximized display portlet in the layout area area that includes the maximized display portlet. It moves by minimizing the display of only the portlet title (step SP19). In the present embodiment, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 designates the layout area 15 including the portlet G to be maximized for fixed display, so that the portlets E and F are displayed on the portal page 12 as shown in FIG. Move to the bottom of the layout area 15 with a minimized display.

  Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 is in a layout area (here, layout area 15) including a portlet to be maximized and is designated as a fixed display portlet other than the portlet to be maximized (here, the layout area 15). Then, the corresponding portlet is not moved) with the display area fixed at the top of the portal page 12 (step SP20).

  Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 calculates a maximizable area 41 excluding the display area of the moved portlet in the area of the layout area (here, layout area 15) including the portlet to be maximized. (Step SP21). In this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 15, the maximizable area 41 is a rectangle (in this example, the maximizable area 41A) that is in contact with four sides of the areas excluding the display area of the moved portlet. Only one). Subsequently, the maximizable area calculation unit 26 transmits change information including the calculated information of the maximizable area 41 and the information of the moved portlets (here, portlets E and F) to the portal page generation unit 28.

  Subsequently, the portal page generation unit 28 actually changes the arrangement on the portal page 12 based on the received change information, as shown in FIG. Subsequently, the portal page generation unit 28 checks whether or not there are a plurality of maximizable areas 41 based on the information of the maximizable area 41 in the received change information (step SP22).

  In the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 11, since the maximizable area 41 is only one of the maximizable areas 41A, the portal page generating unit 28 proceeds to step SP23. That is, the portal page generation unit 28 generates the portal page 12 by arranging the portlet to be maximized (portlet G here) in the maximizable area 41A as shown in FIG. 16 (step SP23). The portal page display information thus transmitted is transmitted to the client device 2 (step SP24).
