Questions to Ashish Sarin about Spring Roo

Hello, I have the following questions:

- Is Spring Roo used only to create a Spring project? or can it be used for anything else?
- Can Spring Roo be used to create Spring Web Flow projects?
- If so, is any JSF component library (such as Primefaces) supported?

Regards,
Damian

Hi Damian,

It's true that Spring Roo is exclusively for developing Spring-based applications. I don't see a reason why someone would like to use anything except Spring for developing enterprise Java applications

Yes, Spring Roo can be used for creating Spring Web Flow projects. But, the current support for creating Spring Web Flow projects is limited. Currently, Spring Roo only generates a sample flow to help you quickly get started with Spring Web Flow projects.

The JSF add-on is currently in development and I think it'll be available in Spring Roo 1.2. Please refer to this JIRA issue for more information: https://jira.springsource.org/browse/ROO-516

regards
ashish

Hi Ashish, thanks for your answers.
What I meant with my first question is that if Spring Roo is used only for the creation of the project, or if it can also used after the project is created (and how).

Hi Damian,

You can use Spring Roo throughout the lifecycle of your project. It's not just meant to create a project and then move away from Roo.

I'd recommend that you should Roo throughout the lifecycle of the project, as productivity improvements provided by Roo span the entire lifecycle of the project.

So, can you introduce Roo in the middle of a Spring Project lifecycle?


Thanks and Regards,
