Subject [jira] Commented: (TAP5-486) Switch Tapestry's built-in JavaScript support from Prototype to jQuery
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 09:42:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-486?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12708861#action_12708861

Adrian commented on TAP5-486:

+1 for a thin wrapper/interface approach allowing different javascript frameworks to be plugged
in. jQuery is my preferred library but don't agree in forcing people to switch from Prototype.
Need to also stop Prototype taking ownership of the $ symbol, I shouldn't really have to write
$j or j$ everywhere.

> This is not a definitive requirement; I've created this issue to promote discussion.
> It's quite likely that a move like this could be accomplished quite smoothly for users
who are meerly consumers of JavaScript components; authors of JavaScript components would
have to make some changes.
> Possibly we should code the jQuery stack from the get-go to NOT use the $() method, but
instead use j$(). That extra character to type could make all the difference is allowing a
smooth upgrade, where jQuery becomes the default, but prototype/scriptaculous can still be
> Possibly a new annotation, @PrototypeSupport for components to ensure that the Prototype
libraries are available for compatibility?
