Subject [jelly] Re: Links in tutorial leading to error 404
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2007 07:58:34 GMT

(please note the subject box-mark so that it can be filtered faster)

indeed, jelly's site maintenance is lagging behind.
Basically, this is due to two things which current jelly developers  
could not face yet for lack of time:
- there has been an attempt to make the tag-doc better using ant  
which makes a deeper site revision necessary (see, e.g. https://
- building the website of jelly takes an enormous time because of  
building each tag-lib website... maybe that's fixed since maven-1.1,  
not sure

And all this is overdue since the move of commons to TLP (a month or  
two ago).

the source reference you are looking for is: 

maybe that gives you a hint how to fix manually other errors until we  
find some time.

As Simon points out, jelly development is not alive. Current  
developers still love it and there still is a strong potential of  
applications (to my surprise, after 4 years, this is still much  
valid) but it hasn't been able to mature to 1.0 yet.

Maybe a radical move would be to simplify the whole thing... that  
might ease it all. Not sure.
