''Then Bohr said, I think this is divisible, further''

----

Even an atomic RDC is made of mulitple artifacts. Usually, an atomic RDC is the combination
of:

 * '''A tag file''' - This is the implementation of the JSP tag that corresponds to this component.
All components are implemented as JSP 2.0 tag files, which in addition to allowing the same
programming model for authoring and instantiation, also facilitates composition.

 * '''A private data model''' - The private data model defines how the component processes
user input. It contains crucial information about canonicalization and validation of user
input. It is also used to persist component state across multiple requests.

 * '''A speech grammar''' - This defines the set of valid utterances that a user may respond
with when prompted for input by this component. There may be more than one grammar files (speech
and DTMF) that contribute to the component grammar.

 * '''A configuration file''' - Each atomic RDC comes with a default configuration file. It
is clear that the prompts contained in this configuration file are almost guaranteed to be
replaced in each instance while authoring an application, since the author will want to use
prompts that fit with the given application and task being performed. For example, a default
prompt of {{{Please specify a date}}} may be replaced by {{{Please specify the departure date}}}
when collecting a departure date in a travel application. The default configuration is overridden
by providing a new configuration file that is passed to the component via its {{{config}}}
tag attribute.

 * '''A public data model''' (optional) - This establishes the type of the return value that
the application should expect from this component. There is no need to define a public data
model if the component returns say, a {{{java.lang.String}}} or {{{java.util.Date}}} object.


All of these artifacts expect the others to fulfill their internal contracts for a component
to function. Thus, replacing one of these will very often require changes to (some or all
of) the others.
