  • Sophisticated views possible?

    Hi there,

    is it possible to create sophisticated (ajax) views like ext js (or other) with ROO for lists and other typical widgets? What templates have to be specified and where are they located?

    Thank you in advance,

    As you may have noticed, by default Roo currently makes use of Apache Tiles for templating and Spring's theming support (swappable CSS and images) to achieve a fair amount of flexibility with regards to UI customization.

    The use of Tiles and Spring theming support allows you to customize your generated application as you wish, however currently you would need to switch off Roo's view artifact generation after once you start customizing your view artifacts as Roo would otherwise regenerate the view artifacts. By view artifacts I am referring to anything under /WEB-INF/views/<entity-name> all other view artifacts are not touched by Roo after the project is first generated.

    We are planning to make this more flexible with the next major release after Roo 1.0 final is out. By then you should also be able to create your own add-ons to provide different view implementations etc. Ideas around this effort are generally collected in our Jira:

    Please feel free to comment and offer your ideas if you wish.

      Where do I switch it off and could you give me a link to the Spring theming introduction?

      Thank you

      P.S.: Ok, i found the theme docs:
