Subject [jira] Commented: (TAP5-73) JavaScript libraries should be automatically packed/minimalized

---------------------------------------------------

>From http://tapestry.apache.org/tapestry5.1/guide/ajax.html

"Combining Scripts

In production mode, Tapestry automatically combines JavaScript libraries. A single request
(for a virtual asset) will retrieve the combined content of all referenced JavaScript library
files. This is a very useful feature, as it reduces the number of requests needed to present
a page to the user. As elsewhere, if the client browser supports gzip compression, the combined
JavaScript will be compressed."

I have just tested two different pages that use the same set of Javascript files and they
received the same URL: http://domainassets/virtual/H4sIAAAAAAAAAIXNQQrCMBCF4XGhXkREhE500QNN41SqlYS86aKeyat5B4mQgJu6$002ffl47$002fWm9ZNotSWiDR2dAGpw8GmIJn4awwTX8plP3LqYggWbo$002fINxMv2p2Z$002fWPba9$002brtK3dFmkSFpbmiErLaF9WN4u$002fdkC6V1ZJd83eteSggV83nHzax7d8QAQAA.js.
I'm not 100% sure, but I think Tapestry, for each requests, checks what Javascript files were
included. Then it checks if this file list was already combined into a single one: if not,
it does the combining in the spot and sets a far-future expire header on it (for caching).
If some of the included Javascript files is changed, then it does the combination again.

You can also run tests yourself and take a look at the sources.

> Tapestry should catch downloads of JavaScript libraries, and should "pack" the JavaScript
... remove comments and unecessary whitespace.  I believe Dojo has a library to do this, it
may even shorten variable names (!).
> A smart implementation of this would manage to cache the compressed JS, and notice when
the uncompressed version changed.
