Subject RE: Tiles Two JSP's for Displaying One Form .
Date Tue, 03 Jun 2003 14:00:03 GMT
Hi I agree with you .. But see ..below you have created a definition
"doc.login" .. So your content (body) JSP is "login.jsp" .
Count this as one . 
Now You need a JSP to insert this definition . .. Say index.jsp ..
My index.jsp will look something like this ..

<%@ page language="java" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-tiles.tld" prefix="tiles" %>

<tiles:insert definition="doc.login" flush="true" />

Now Count this JSP as number 2 .. 

Hence to build the whole page I m using Two JSP ..
Hope I have made my question clear ..

And If still I m missing some thing .. Let me know ..

  Content of tiles-defs.xml:
  <!-- =======================================================  -->
  <!-- View page Templates  				-->
  <!-- =======================================================  -->
  <definition name="doc.Layout1" path="/view/main/plain_layout.jsp">
	  <put name="title"  value="ACINT21" />
	  <put name="header" value="/view/main/header.jsp" />
	  <put name="body"   value="/view/main/body.jsp" />
	  <put name="footer" value="/view/main/footer.jsp" />

  <!-- =======================================================  -->
  <!-- View page definitions  				-->
  <!-- =======================================================  -->
  <!-- Login Page -->
  <definition name="doc.login" extends="doc.Layout1">
	  <put name="title"  value="Login" />
	  <put name="body"   value="/view/login/login.jsp" />
  <!-- Welcome (after successful login) Page -->
  <definition name="doc.welcome" extends="doc.Layout1">
	  <put name="title"  value="Welcome Here" />
	  <put name="body"   value="/view/main/welcome.jsp" />
  <definition name="doc.welcome2" extends="doc.Layout1">
	  <put name="title"  value="Welcome Here2" />
	  <put name="body"   value="/view/main/welcome2.jsp" />
  <definition name="doc.welcome3" extends="doc.Layout1">
	  <put name="title"  value="Welcome Here3" />
	  <put name="body"   value="/view/main/welcome3.jsp" />

Then in the action mapping in struts config you forward to "doc.login" etc.

With a few extra pages, for the layout, header, footer; I only need a single
page (the body) for every new def.  So the overhead may be two or 3
Pages at first but then it grows by one for ever new def.  This is just one
way and it works for me.  I'm sure there are more efficient (less pages) but
this way seems to be easy to understand and small after the original

And you need to have 40 JSP's  to insert those 40 Definintions ...
Isnt it ??

Fine You have one JSp for the Body content .. Then you extend from the
master page to make a new definition in the XML file . 
But then I require another JSP which actually inserts that definition ...

No, it should be more like 40 + 1 per re-usable tile component

I set up a 'master page' with the basic layout,
and perhaps a 'menu' include containing my menu buttons / links,
and then the tiles definition just inserts the content into a definition
derived from the master page layout. And that is all done in
the tiles-config.xml file

So you might have 40 definitions in your tiles config + 40 body content 
but certainly not 80 JSPs.

or at least that's my way of thinking on the matter
