Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-4161) Incorporate tiles3 into conventions, tutorial (and add code to tiles3 plugin)
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:07:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-4161?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15131993#comment-15131993
] 

Christoph Nenning commented on WW-4161:
---------------------------------------

Seems reasonable to me. It helps in the case that there is a tiles-definiton in tiles.xml
but the action is just not configured to use that definition.


As I read "conventions" in the title of this issue I was thinking something like:
- look if there is a tiles-layout that can be used
- look if that layout has an attribute like "content" or "body"
- look if there is a jsp or ftl with the name of the action
- create a new tiles-definition with found layout and set content/body to jsp/ftl

But actually I'm not a big fan of such conventions as it makes it hard to predict what happens.
I prefer to explicitly configure stuff with annotations, as in WW-4594.

> It would be good if the struts2 website could turn the following into a tutorial, possibly
some of the code could be included into the tile3 plugin but I'm not convinced at this time
that should be done.
