I went through table of contents again.
What I found missing is integration with Ajax framework.
Question to Markus Stäuble & Sven Lüppken. Spring is known to have easy integration with DWR. Does book covers integration with DWR or similar AJAX library?

I guess, the book covers Spring JavaScript library, which may be enabled with Ajax. However, author need to comment on whether the book covers DWR / Ajax or not.

Believe the book doesn't cover DWR.

But it should because it is not general spring book, it is specific on spring web flow, so I expect it to cover. I know the table of contents doesn't have it which means it does not cover. But it should have.

Hi,

I think the question is what is the difference between "Spring Web Flow" and the whole thing called "Spring Web Flow 2 Distribution" when you look at this diagram on the SpringSource page.

Obviously Spring Web Flow is part of the Spring Web Flow Distritbution which also contains the Spring JavaScript framework. But what is the difference between the two Web Flow boxes? And which one is covered by the book?

The book covers Spring JavaScript (in chapter 5), shipped with the Spring Web Flow distribution. Spring JavaScript is an abstraction layer for other JavaScript toolkits, which means that, in theory, it can work with more than one JavaScript toolkit. From the reference documentation:

"Spring JS is designed such that an implementation of its API can be built for any of the popular Javascript toolkits. The initial implementation of Spring.js builds on the Dojo
toolkit. " (http://static.springframework.org/spring-webflow/docs/2.0.x/reference/html/ch11s03.html)

In Spring Web Flow 2, support for Dojo is included.

Hope that helps!

Thanks,
Sven

Hello,

I am new to spring javascript. I had gone through the link mentioned below(http://static.springframework.org/spring-webflow/docs/2.0.x/reference/html/ch11s03.html) but is there any specific document to refer for writing scripts in order to know what all parameters can Spring.addDecoration/Spring.ElementDecoration accept.

Ex -
<form:input id="searchString" path="searchString"/>
<script type="text/javascript">
Spring.addDecoration(new Spring.ElementDecoration({
elementId: "searchString",
widgetType: "dijit.form.ValidationTextBox",
widgetAttrs: { promptMessage : "Search hotels by name, address, city, or zip." }}));
</script>
