Welcome Howard !

Some questions for you

1. What motivated you write the book?
2. Is Tapestry competing with JSF?
If yes, What are your thoughts on open source competing with standards driven by Sun ?
3. What is the future of tapestry?

The project controls any specifications they produce.

Here is what I've just extracted from the amazon page of the book...

Targeted to new Tapestry users and even developers new to creating web applications in general, this guide includes extensive notes on development "gotchas", including common Tapestry errors and how to fix them.


You can follow more info at this link...

hi Ko Ko Naing

I have already checked that link. Thanks Anyway.

One for Howard:
Actually I would like to know if this book has complete hands-on practical examples as it is easier to learn from examples.



Thanks.

From Manning site
....Many simple examples show you how to tackle common tasks such as form validation, application localization, client-side scripting, and synchronization between browser and app server. ...

I wrote the book to help new developers learn Tapestry. Tapestry is a great departure from traditional Java web applications. The freedom it provides can be confusing initially. Understanding Tapestry requires understanding some complex relationships between Tapestry, your code, the Servlet API, and so forth. New users have traditionally had a problem with this, because they didn't have a guide. This book is the guide ... it presents each concept in the correct order, to keep you on track.

The book is very practical, it consists of many small applications that demonstrate ordinary situations in application development, then goes into detail about how to approach those situations optimally using Tapestry.

Can Tapestry API access Servlet API? :roll:

Someone has already mentioned in some thread(s) (can't be bothered to search right now...) that you can access the HttpServletRequest stuff through IRequestCycle, whatever that is.

Gregg has mentioned that Tapestry has provided a set of APIs to access the Servlet APIs objects from:
