Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-661) Add Java based configuration
Date Sat, 03 Jul 2010 03:54:49 GMT


Bob Schellink commented on CLK-661:

The main goal of <pages> is to define a "set" consisting of {package, autobinding, automapping},
although automapping is of dubious use since defining a package implies automapping=true.
I'm also not sure that autobinding should be switched on/off at the page level, instead if
could be moved to the app level. In the XmlConfigService impl you'll note that the last autobinding
setting overrides the others, so it is currently an application wide setting as well.

For automapping I'd imagine something like this:

protected void loadPagePackages() {
  boolean autobinding = false;

  addPagePackage("com.mycorp", autobinding);

or perhaps the more abstract version:

protected void loadAutoMapping() {
  addAutoMapping("com.mycorp", false);

Building the autoMapped pages can be done with:

protected void buildAutoMapping(Set<String> pagePackages) {

Btw I haven't looked at the code so there might be some pitfalls I'm overlooking.

Some of the problems with xml based configurations is:
> - no compile time checking
> - no JavaDoc help in IDE
> I propose we add a new DefaultConfigService class that is Java based which XmlConfigService
extends from.
> Its advantages is the polar opposite of xml disadvantage:
> - compile time checking
> - JavaDoc help in IDE
> - More powerful configuration options, e.g. its possible to configure FileUpload in ways
not exposed by xml config. Also possible to create more powerful algorithms e.g. which templates
to include/exclude.
