Subject Re: Urgent, TilesRequestProcessor
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2003 11:05:42 GMT


  If you use Tiles, and want to extends the RequestProcessor, you need 
to extend the TilesRequestProcessor. This later extends the 
RequestProcessor, so you transitively extends it also.

  The TilesRequestProcessor purpose is to catch the definition names 
used in urls. If  a struts url (like forward="") is a definition, then 
this definition is inserted in place of the url. The 
TilesRequestProcessor doesn't interfere with other functionalities 
provided by the original processor.
  To understand exactly what happen, you can check the RequestProcessor 
workflow (defined in the process() method). This will help to understand.
