Looking for Opinions...

The GlassFish admin console team has been working hard on ways to simplify our development, while at the same time attempting to improve the experience of using the console.  We have created a prototype which shows a couple different designs we are considering -- we'd like your feedback.  Here's how you can help:
Here are some things we are particularly interested in feedback on:
  • Do you like (or dislike) the menus?
    v3 Console with Menus
  • Do you like (or dislike) the tree?  (Be sure to click the "Toggle Scheme" button.)
    v3 Console with a Tree
  • Do you like / dislike the tagging feature? (See first screen shot above.)
Of course all other comments are also welcome (What's missing?  What do you really like?  What do you hate? etc.).  We know there are many issues with this UI, it is an early prototype -- far from production ready.  Just a few of the major issues we're aware of:
  • Many broken button clicks (particularly posts that don't do a redirect)
  • 404 pages cause a loop due to a JSF bug
  • Performance -- it's not good right now, it will be MUCH better when it's not a prototype (note: it also doesn't help that this prototype is running on a small desktop machine over a DSL-line... ;) ).
  • Many pages are broken (some intentionally for the public demo, others are simply not implemented)
  • List of tagged pages can sometimes show duplicates
  • Ajax for updating tags and other portions of the screen is not implemented
  • Breadcrumbs do not exist

So... as you can see we're not looking for bugs, but rather general feedback on the navigation and Look-and-Feel.  So post your thoughts and help make GlassFish better. :)

Thanks for taking a look!
