Subject Re: [action2] Upgrade Dojo toolkit
Date Mon, 19 Jun 2006 18:57:09 GMT
I have tried to follow this whole thread (but probably I have missed
some aspects, so sorry if I re-sayin something already said or
bringing an arguement already demolished).

My understand was the same as Ian's (after a long thread I had with Pattrick).

1. The idea would that WebWork/SAF2 core should provide the means to
build almost all we can think of AJAX based on DWR integration.

2. The current Dojo based widgets are simple enough to be used in some
sample/tutorial like pages but for real life apps they don't work (or
put it in another more realistic way: I haven't been able to have them
working within a normal timeframe).
I have to mention, that  I haven't used the Dojo-based tree, but I
tried all the others.

3. These widgets can live in a separate project. The lifecycle and
stability of SAF2, DWR and Dojo are completely different and by moving
them to a separate project we can ensure a more uptodate integration.
