The Display Tag Project is not dead

Despite the lack of support and code contributions, it's good to know the Display Tag project is not dead. Fabrizio has been doing a lot of refactoring lately, including Maven 2 integration and support for long lists. Nice work Fabrizio! In addition, it's good to see all the activity on the mailing lists. Thanks to all of you that've been answering questions.

Recently, I found the displaytag is quite good, but there is a question, which i think the displaytag do not deal with it elegantly, is the paging with huge resultset. Hope the displaytag dev can keep on doing this good work.

@Jeff: The v1.1 release will support partial lists and external sorting. And will resolve the problems with huge lists.

Displaytag is a nice project with a great potential. Maybe the OS community should invest more time in it.

Our applications rely heavily on the displaytag lib. Recently, I needed to enhance its export facility to generate PDF, RTF, and Excel exports that more closely resemble the HTML rendered on the browser, and have contributed the code to the displaytag project. See

We're also working on ajaxing displaytag in conjuction with the AjaxTags project,

Can I suggest that the site at sourceforge be updated occasionally giving the progress? I also thought it was dead and was ready to scrap some stuff I did a year ago Thanks Greg

The Display Tag Project is already dead

@Frank - I wouldn't call it "dead", I'd call it "mature". The good news is there's still a release about once a year, which is pretty good for a mature library IMO.
