While I was on the road last week, I never had a chance to blog about a new article on OnJava: Tapestry: A Component-Centric Framework.
As usual, there are a number of things that rub me the wrong way. For example, I never use the class attribute of the page or component specification, I configure Tapestry to find my pages and my classes in appropriate packages.
The formatting of the examples in the article is a bit odd. I'm not sure who this article serves ... the article claims to show "how simple it is to develop a web application in Tapestry" but it doesn't come close. Actually, if I didn't know Tapestry not only would I not be interested in pursuing it because of this article, I would almost certainly be persuaded not to research further.
Nice to see more Tapestry in print, but as they say, if you want something done right ...
You'll be much better of reading Warner Onstine's Tapestry 101 once that's available. I've been doing the technical edits of this book as each chapter is ready and it's much closer to the mark!
