Subject [jira] Commented: (WW-1291) Centralize location for all template files include JavaScript

Brian Pontarelli commented on WW-1291:
--------------------------------------

It has been far too long for me to recall all the details on this issue. The only thing that
I can recall is that the search path for FTL files is different than those for JS files. If
WebWork is looking for a template it looks in the /template/<theme> for overrides and
then in classpath. When it looks for JS files it searches the classpath only. So, overrides
need to be placed in the /WEB-INF/classes directory since this ends up in the web application
classpath prior to the webwork JAR files.

I see your point about changing the JS URL in the FTL file to NOT use the /struts namespace,
but if I want to use a theme (say XHTML) and don't need to tweak it at all, it would be nice
to have the ability to override JS files in the same manner as I can override FTL files, by
placing them in the /template/<theme> and it searches there first and then falls back
to the classpath. This would standardize the override method for both types of files.

> Currently, WebWork loads the FTL files from either the JAR or the template directory
in the web application. However, it loads the JavaScript files from the classpath using a
prefix based search. This forces custom JavaScript files to be placed into the WEB-INF/classes/template
directory rather than with the custom FTL files in the web application directory. These two
ways to customize WebWork should be combined so that it is all standard.
