Subject Re: render time element removal question
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2005 16:45:50 GMT
To be honest, personally, I don't think that approach is really going to
mix well with tapestry.  As was mentioned by HLS in a recent thread, you
should consider pages at runtime as immutable.  Removing elements will
prove problematic, I think.
An approach I used was to create a sort of "inRole" component.  It takes
as parameters either a requisite permission name or an object for which
permission is required.  It's essentially an "if" wrapper, but has the
advantage of centralizing the render-oriented permission logic to a single
You could also create custom wrappers around any components.  So you
could, for instance, create a "SecureTable" component which wraps a table
component, adds parameters related to permission checking, and
conditionally renders the component. Then you could use your SecureTable
just like table, and still have your dynamic behavior.... static
structure, dynamic behavior. :)
