Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (TAPESTRY-2183) Support Java Portlet Specification V2 - JSR-286
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2008 17:06:31 GMT
Well, I clearly have a different POV, but I don't necessarily think
comparing Tapestry to something else is all that bad.  Every framework has
something that it does better than others.  People see it and naturally want
it their framework of choice.  So long as what they want isn't fundamentally
at odds with how the framework is structured, I don't see that being a
particularly big problem.

For example, I went to Django land for a little while after T4 and before T5
just to try something new.  Django has some interesting ideas that I would
love to see implemented in Tapestry.  On the whole, however, I don't think
Django even comes close to what Tapestry can provide.  I definitely don't
want to see Tapestry become Django, but there's no reason not to make a good
framework better by using someone else's ideas.

FWIW, I haven't really gotten drawn into the Wicket / Tapestry debate and
don't know much about it, other than that for whatever reason, one exists.
So, I could very well be looking at the issue naively.
