I cannot reproduce this behavior of having action tags executed immediately.
I've checked in a test for this behavior as well (which passes).

My guess is that you're defining the action tag incorrectly, could you
attach a Jelly snippet that reproduces the problem?

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the tips.
However I am still having problem getting the swing to work. :-(
I tried to use the code snippet about the System.exit, but it didn´t work.
Regarding the CardLayout, I couldn´t find its tag in the jelly swing
documentation. Do you happen to have an example about how to use it ?

One thing I´ve noticed when using Jelly Swing is that any action you define
in the jelly script is always executed as of the script startup, even though
an event is not triggered yet. Do you know if this is an expected behaviour
? I thought any action would be executed only if an event associated to it
was activated.

Regarding your reloadable strategy, I think it would be great to have
something like that. We can discuss it later if you wish.

Thanks a bunch.

You might give a try with a CardLayout, or ?

Would the following work ?
<j:invokeStatic className="java.lang.System" method="exit">
There is also a quit in the swing-demo.

This is not easy, I feel. I've been working on reloadable swing 
components for a while where a script would be run again in order to 
populate the pane but I didn't come with a final solution.
I know that you can get a similar effect by doing a bit more method 
invocations and variable assignments.

My intent for reloadable component is, indeed, to have each component 
behave as a browser frame and request to re-run a population-script 
along a target.

Just thinking out loud, I seem to encounter that the following might be 

   <sw:panel var="myList"/>

and somewhere else (e.g. as a child of action:

<sw:target name="panel">

That is, we would introduce a "target" element that would allow an 
component to be cleared than repopulated by its content...
This seems suddenly pretty easy to implement compared to the 
"reloadable" kind of things I expected. Would it fit your task ?
