Redirect-after-Post in Tapestry 4.0

I just noticed a good Tapestry nugget on Howard's blog. With Tapestry 3.0, one of the things I complained about was the need to throw an exception when redirecting. With 4.0, it looks like you can plug-in this flash component and get exactly the flash message functionality I try to put in all the web frameworks that AppFuse supports. Now I just need to figure out how to do @InjectObject("engine-service:page") without using annotations.

I'm hoping to upgrade AppFuse to WebWork 2.2 and Tapestry 4.0 in the next few days.

<inject property="foo" object="engine-service:page"/> (using the 4.0 DTD)

Because it was rude and had nothing to do with this post. Crude comments are often deleted - especially when they come from an anonymous poster. "Jason" is as good as anonymous to me. If you provide a link to your blog in the URL field, I'll be more than happy to leave it.

Howard - FYI: I had to remove the following from tapestry-flash-0.1.1.pom for this to work.

It looks like good functionality. It's one of the first things you want when working with the redirect-after-post pattern, and frankly I am surprised it is presented as both an extension and a new thing. Wicket had the concept of feedback messages from day one, though it took a lot of iterations to get it right.
In general the move to JDK 5 made Tapestry a lot nicer to work with indeed. Congrats HLS.

Struts has similar functionality for messages starting from version 1.2.6 (Dec 2004). It does not have a specific scope, it just removes messages from the session after they have been accessed.

Hi , What about the situation of double submit ? Is there something in Tapestry which is similar to STRUTS in terms of keeping a token ?
