Implementing Siebel eSales Without Frames

Customer and partner applications use HTML frames for optimum compatibility when running with browser-based applications. HTML frames allow portions of the browser window to scroll independently of the rest of the window. For example, with HTML frames it is possible to place the main navigation in one frame and content in another frame. You can scroll the content while the main navigation remains in a fixed location.

Customer and partner applications can also be unframed. Siebel employee applications require frames and cannot be unframed.

Before choosing to unframe your application, consider the following limitation to using unframed applications with browser-based applications. In an unframed application, all UI elements exist in the same window. Therefore, the contents list may scroll off the page as a user scrolls down. This is a limitation of the unframed HTML environment and a factor in choosing to frame applications.

If you want to use a frameless deployment, refer to Technical Note Implementing Siebel Standard Interactivity Applications with a Non-Framed Banner on Siebel SupportWeb.
