Subject [jira] Created: (MYFACES-294) DummyFormUtils extendability
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2005 19:28:01 GMT
DummyFormUtils extendability

         Key: MYFACES-294
     Project: MyFaces
        Type: New Feature
    Versions: 1.0.9 beta    
    Reporter: Emond Papegaaij
    Priority: Minor

During the development of a framework based on Struts and JSF (using the struts-faces integration
library) I came accross a problem with DummyFormUtils. The current way DymmyFormUtils is handled
does not allow the developer to extend the behaviour in any way. For the struts-faces library
a token field needs to be added to the form. This token always needs to be submitted, regardless
of the form used (input or dummy). Currently the only way of adding such a field seems to
be changing the source of DummyFormUtils; not a very flexible and reusable solution.

The main cause of this is the use of a static method for writing the dummy form and the lack
of a factory for creating an instance of the DummyFormUtils. I propose DummyFormUtils is transformed
into a singleton with a configurable implementation (probably through an interface). Futhermore
the writeDummyForm should have a way of extending the default behaviour, probably with a protected
method responsible for writing the internals of the form.
