Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-3937) The annotation @Result can have an extra attribute to hold tiles attributes
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2012 02:27:21 GMT


Daniel Woo commented on WW-3937:

Using parameters would work, but we probably need a naming convention, e.g, all tiles attribute
should be set as parameters with a prefix:
@Results(@Result(name = "test", location = "test", type ="tiles"
     params = { 
               "", "bar", // override a tiles attribute foo
               "foo", "bar", // setting a request parameter foo

Then the TilesResult probably need a private HashMap to hold any parameters with that prefix,
pass that information to the BasicTilesContainer, so that the method getAttributeContext()
can populate overrided tiles attributes. I am not an expert on tiles code and maybe you get
a better idea to enhance this, what do you think?

> Currently the @Result annotation for tiles can only specify a location to render, e.g.
> {code:java}
> @Action(value = "/home", results = {@Result(name = "success", location = "home", type
= "tiles")})
> {code}
> What I want is to add a new attribute like this:
> {code:java}
> @Action(value = "/home", results = {@Result(name = "success", location = "home", tilesAttr={"loadcss",
"/css/home.css"}, type = "tiles")})
> {code}
> The reason is to utilize wildcard tiles definition. Suppose we have the wildcard tiles
definition below,
> {code:xml}
> <definition name="*.*.*" extends="{3}-layout">
>     <put-attribute name="body" value="/view/{1}/{2}.jsp"/>
>     <put-attribute name="loadcss" value=""/>
> </definition>
> {code}
> The tiles attribute 'loadcss' should be set dynamically, or specified in the annotation.
Currently since the tiles plugin does not support the attribute yet, we have to do that in
the tiles configuration file with <put-attribute>, that means we have to explicitly
define each tiles definition without wildcard support.
