Project Graduation and Project Spotlight Interview with John Reynolds, project owner of TapestryWebcomponentExamples

One of the cool things about the Global education and Learning Community (GELC) is that we promote education of developers by fellow developers. In this case, John Reynolds, project owner of TapestryWebcomponentExamples, has offered up his time to manage examples concentrating on Jakarta's Tapestry's Java Web Components .

Tapestry's Java Web Components are usedto create web applications in terms of objects, methods and properties instead of URLs and query parameters. So far there are two examples (with more on the way to explore the technology The TapestryTables.war demonstrates several features of the contrib:Table components that were authored by MindBridge. The TapestryTrees.war is an entry level introduction to the contrib:Tree components that were authored by Ceco.

This project is a great complement to Tapestry Better Pet Shop project or the docclerk projects which are also hosted here on

Because John has worked hard, we are graduating this project out of the edu-incubator into the edu-learningresources section of the GELC. Here is a little bit of information about John and this great project:

Project Name: TapestryWebcomponentExamples

Summary: Resources for learning Tapestry's Java Web Components

Owner Name: John Reynolds

City: Austin State: TX

Country: USA

Tell us a little 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 schools/universities did you attend? University of Texas at Arlington, and Rice University in Houston

Are you a member of any Java user groups? Austin Java Users Group

Tell us a little about the project and why you started it. 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 project's current status and plans for the future? Keep adding examples as I get time.

What kind of help are you looking for on this project? I'm looking for folks to "adopt" specific Tapestry components, and add examples for those components.

Thanks, Richard!
