Looking for Tapestry Examples? They're here in the Global Education and Learning Community
Tapestry seems to be one of the latest technologies coming out of the Apache/Jakarta community that is gaining steam. Tapestry lets you build web applications with objects, methods and properties instead of URLs and query parameters. But like many open source projects, it needs a little help. In order to fill the documentation and understanding gap, John Reynolds (firstname.lastname@example.org) started the TapestryWebComponentExamples project in the Global Education and Learning Community (GELC).
I talked with John about himself and his project. Here is what he had to say:
Tell us about yourself
I have an MSCSE from the University of Texas at Arlington, and a BSEE from Rice University in Houston. I've been a professional programmer/development manager/architect since 1980.
What local Java user group are you associated with?
Austin Java Users Group
Why did you start this project?
I published some Tapestry examples in my blog, and the feedback was very positive. Setting up a place for people to share examples seemed like a good next step.
What is the status and further plans for this project?
Keep adding examples as I get time.
What kind of help are you looking for?
I'm looking for folks to "adopt" specific Tapestry components, and add examples for those components.
