Subject Event handling in Woody
Date Thu, 18 Sep 2003 21:47:04 GMT
Hi all,

A short post to say that I've been working intensively on event handling 
on Woody since yesterday. I'm nearly finished with it, and obtained 
something powerful-yet-simple, that allows to define event handlers on 
actions (ActionEvent) and fields (ValueChangeEvent). The goal is also to 
allow event listeners to be written both in Java (classic-style) and in 
JavaScript (flowscript-style).

This morning, I was reading an article about JavaServerFaces (never did 
look at it before), digged a bit, and discovered that what I was doing 
was very close to JSF event handling, and grabbed some interesting 
points. Digged further, and found the lifecycle thing very interesting, 
and once again close to the way Woody handles form processing. Parts of 
the JSF are not so bad and can be a good inspiration source ;-)

Once this infrastructure is in place, I plan to write specialized 
repeater-actions that automatically handle add/delete row in repeaters.

More soon...
