Subject [jira] Commented: (TAP5-948) Built-in mechanism to identify self-referential links and/or event/render requests
Date Mon, 28 Dec 2009 11:23:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-948?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12794801#action_12794801
] 

Peter Stavrinides commented on TAP5-948:
----------------------------------------

This issue also relates back to this jira: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-411
which is over a year old now. A new life-cycle method can be equivalent to a new persistence
strategy, either way this is an annoyance that results in a large amount of unnecessary boilerplate
code.

> Discussed on Tapestry user thread: http://old.nabble.com/Best-practice-for-initializing-page-to-default-context-td26689270.html
> One of the cases where the issue manifests itself is that it's more difficult to initialize
a page to default context than it needs to (and redirect to it) since event requests always
cause a parameterless onActivate() to be invoked as well and there's no (framework-level)
support for identifying event and render requests. There are many other uses for being able
to easily identify links referring back to the same page.
> Howard says:
> "I've had to solve this problem for one of my clients as well and I think it's something
that should go into the framework.  The approach
> I took was to identify self-referential links (page render links that are to the same
page they originate from) using an additional query
> parameter. This allows Tapestry to differentiate between requests that start on a new
page vs. those that continue on the page. Tapestry can
> then fire a notification on components to perform initialization (on page render requests
without the query parameter).
> This would be a new lifecycle method, like pageAttached() or pageLoaded().  I'm still
working on the right terminology, for Widen it is "initialized", as in method pageInitialized()."
