Do Revlet pages have unique URLs?

Andre, 
Thanks for sharing.

As your revletobject.load script has 'src', 'stack' and 'id' parameters, it looks like I can get 'inside' the revlet, to open on a specific stack - that makes the single revlet with multiple start-points seem feasible. Great!

If I understand this correctly, if I place this javascript into a holding page for a demo revlet - and then hard-code the stack parameters - the page will launch the demo revlet, focused on the desired stack - nice!

Furthermore, a single demo page could be used to dynamically launch the revlet with the desired stack focus. If I create my functional specification in a spreadsheet or database, with columns for the demonstration revlet & stack parameters, a formula can generate the 'demo' URL with these parameters after a '?' character. Then, I can add to your Javascript, some code that extracts the URL parameters into variables and then launches the demo revlet into the correct stack.

I'm off to learn a bit about Javascript URL extract functions!
Thanks,
Keith..

If I migrate my various experiments into sub-stacks of a single GLX framework app (and then save this as a revlet) would individual revlet pages be externally addressable via urls within a requirements mgt database? Or does revweb work as a self-contained 'player', suggesting that I'd need to keep the various pages separate?
