Subject [jira] Created: (SHALE-427) Allow non-dialog outcomes to be handled with ease

Allow non-dialog outcomes to be handled with ease

                 Key: SHALE-427
             Project: Shale
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Dialog
    Affects Versions: 1.0.4
            Reporter: Veit Guna

Currently there's no easy way to include the shale dialog component into an existing webapp
that has non-dialog links like menus (always visible).
So, when entering a dialog from within a menu, it is not possible to leave the dialog through
menu links without putting all possible outcomes to the
dialog configuration (doh!).

Spring Webflow offers the possibility to include global-transitions which are inherited to
the single dialogs. But that isn't very handy, too. For example if I add a new menu entry,
I always have to remember to update the webflow (and of course the jsf navigation rules).

Perhaps it could be configured per shale dialog whether non-dialog outcomes are valid. In
addition shale could check if a normal jsf transition for the given outcome exists and maybe
give a warning or something if not. A kind of fallback.

Other ideas are welcome.
