Subject [jira] Closed: (TAP5-1281) Simplifications for lightweight Tapestry5 projects
Date Wed, 22 Sep 2010 19:58:34 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-1281?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Thiago H. de Paula Figueiredo closed TAP5-1281.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

With regard to a global service, Davor Hrg already explained how to achieve that.
Having a class per page is one Tapestry architectural decision that was done after analyzing
Tapestry 4, which had it. It only increased complexity and made learning Tapestry more complex,
not simpler
Your example seems to ask for template-driven logic, something that definitely goes against
Tapestry's phylosophy.
Please post your ideas in the Tapestry dev mailing list before posting here. That is the place
to discuss Tapestry features, not here.

> Simplifications for lightweight Tapestry5 projects
> --------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: TAP5-1281
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-1281
>             Project: Tapestry 5
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: tapestry-core
>    Affects Versions: 5.0.15
>            Reporter: Tobias Marx
>            Priority: Minor
> In order to simplify Tapestry5 even further i would like to suggest the following:
> - auto-creation of "empty" page and component classes if they don't exist at runtime
(to reduce number of lines of code, especially for small projects & demos)
> - being able to reference a "global" service by default from within the templates where
all database queries / persistence queries can be placed
> This way, you could create quite complex web applications with only a few files:
> - a layout templates
> -  x template files for all pages (instead of 2*x)
> -  y template files for all components (instead of 2*y)
> - one "global" service as an additional file that contains all hibernate/persistance
> This would cater of all users that want to create lightweight websites with only as many
lines of code/files as really needed. 
> A lot of website can be implemented just by querying data  and displaying them in a template
> The idea:
> - reduce the lines of code for small / medium projects
> - create even more convincing Tapestry demos (vs. RoR/PHP)
> - increase acceptance by more users checking Tapestry out for the first time
