Subject Re: Runtime Composition using APIs

Antonio,
Thanks a lot for the response. The reason I was thinking it would be possible is that I've
seen such functionality in action in IBM Rational Application Developer 7, which has a Web
Page Template that allows users/developers to create dynamic web pages based on tiles (albeit
older version of Tiles). But, basically once the developer puts in basic information about
the Web Page Template, RAD creates the appropriate definitions at run-time and updates the
tiles-defs.xml with the new definitions. 

Although this approach is for an IDE, I'd bet there should be way to do it on a application
server or even a Portal. 

And talking about Portal, would it be possible for you to update the documentation for "Starting
Tiles in Portlet application" (http://tiles.apache.org/tutorial/configuration.html)? 

thanks and a Happy New Year.

regards,
Ninad.

Yes, it is true.

If it is, is any way to do it?



I suppose that you can do it, but it is not supported by Tiles out of the
box.
Tiles definitions files are read-only, runtime-created definitions are valid
only during the request.
