This book shows you how to build an app with JHipster, and guides you through the plethora of tools, techniques and options you can use. Furthermore, it explains the UI and API building blocks so you understand the underpinnings of your great application.

Tapestry Tutorial Roundup

I'm going to start integrating Tapestry into AppFuse in the next few weeks. There's nothing like a good set of tutorials to help this process along. Here's a list of current tutorials I found - let me know if you know of others:

There also seems to be an up-to-date list of Tapestry Resources on I've started reading Tapestry in Action, so hopefully that will speed things up. I've made it to page 100 and I'm afraid I won't make it much further. I need to "just do it" more than I need to learn how to do it. I've often found that I learn a lot more after diving into the code and trying to do something and go back to reading when I start banging my head against the wall.

Integrating Tapestry into AppFuse shouldn't be that hard. I've already done it with the MyUsers application from Spring Live. Therefore, the Tapestry+Spring stuff will be easy. The only hard part, as far as I can tell, is going to be integrating Friendly URLs. Anyone got a patch for Tapestry 3.0.1?

I'm sure it seems little wasteful, but whenever I have a book like this, I actually read it twice. The first time I go straight through. I do my best to undertsnad the code and examples, but I don't actually work through them. I then go back and work through the book in a more conventional way. I've found that "knowing the ending" helps me to look at the bigger picture even as I'm working through the details. I finished my first trip through Tapestry in Action several weeks ago, and just this weekened I started working through it again in a more detailed manner. So far, so good, although, personally, my coding style and Howard's differ enough that I frequently find myself grinding my teeth when reading through the examples. ;)

Hi Matt, Was just wondering why you chose to use SiteMesh with Tapestry, wont your navigation links in the decorator be somewhat strange?
