Implicit mapping of <a> tag appears to be overriding explicit mapping

                 Key: SHALE-426
             Project: Shale
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Clay
    Affects Versions: 1.0.4
            Reporter: Richard W. Eggert II

>From discussion with Gary VanMatre on

>From: "Richard Eggert" <>
> I'm having an issue using anchor () tags that are explicitly mapped to
> h:commandLink (implicitly mapped tags don't work at all in this case).
> Consider the following HTML template named bugTest.html loaded via an XML view
> named "/bugTest.clay":
>   <body>
>      <form>
>         <a href="some-other-page.html" jsfid="h:commandLink" action="/some-other-view.clay">
>            Go here
>         </a>
>      </form>
>   </body>
> When viewed offline in a web browser, this page works fine.
> However, when viewed online using Clay, the text within the link becomes
> "some-other-page.html Go here" instead of just "Go here", and clicking on the
> link just causes the page to reload.
> Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? There doesn't seem to be any
> valid reason why the contents of the "href" attribute should be moved to be
> nested within the tag, or why the "action" attribute shouldn't propagate to the
> commandLink component.

Yeah, I think this is a bug.  What I think is going on here is that the implicit mapping is
overriding the commandLink's value [1].

What I mean is that the anchored tag is mapped to the outputLink by default.  We should check
to see if there is an action symbol override before using the href.  Or, just look at the
componentType after the jsfid overrides to make sure it's an outputLink.  The outputLink puts
the href in the components value attribute where a commandLink puts the text in the value

Please create a JIRA ticket for this one.
