Subject RE: Resource import on individual pages
Date Fri, 11 Dec 2009 17:49:25 GMT
Antonio probably has some other suggestions, but here are my 2 cents...

If you can anticipate which pieces you might want to include in child tiles, just put a placeholder
for them in the parent layout.  For example, I anticipate that I will have custom Javascript
in each page.  I have setup the base layout and had it include a placeholder (ignoring it
if it is not present) that can be filled in if needed by users of this layout...

baseLayout.jsp includes...
<%@ taglib uri="http://tiles.apache.org/tags-tiles" prefix="tiles" %>
<%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %>
<!-- scripts  -->
<tiles:insertAttribute name="javascript" ignore="true"/> 
<!-- styles   -->
<link href="css/cprocessing.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="../../css/base.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

tiles-default contains this definition...
<definition name="layout.base" 	template="/WEB-INF/webtiles/common/layout/baseLayout.jsp">

tiles-search contains this definition...
<definition name="layout.cSearch" 				extends="layout.base">
<put-attribute name="javascript"	value="/WEB-INF/webtiles/cSearch/javascripts.jsp" />

javascripts.jsp contains... 
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/pageTimer.js"></script>

Subject: Resource import on individual pages

I have a base tile definition and various tiles extend it. The static
resource like css, js are imported throuhg <link> and <Script> tags in base
tile. Similalry various java files are imported though import directive in
base tile jsp page. However each child type has its own js, css and java
import file. How can i import resources for individual pages instead of
putting everything in base tile. Also html <body> and <head> tags are
present only in base tile so is it good practice to import resource in child
tiles even then.

Thanks<HTML><BODY><P><hr size=1></P>
