>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAPESTRY-1695
>             Project: Tapestry
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: tapestry-core
>    Affects Versions: 5.0.5

> The summary is vague because the docs don't yet cover this situation.
> It seems reasonable to have need for something like:
>     Object onActivate() { ... }
>     void onActivate(int itemId) { ... }
> The current event handling calls both these activate methods (the 0 parameters method
first, then others).
> I see only two ways of dealing with this:
> (1) Factor out common code and use a flag to avoid executing that code twice
> (2) Replace the two activate methods with:
>     Object onActivate(Object[] parameters) { ... }
> Both options impose some fiddly responsibilities onto the developer.
> Perhaps a resolution is already planned but here are some ideas:
> - call only one event handler
> - allow event handlers to short-circuit (return boolean/Boolean?)
> - swallow coercion exceptions so other event handlers can be tried
> Cheers,
> Nick.
