If yes, would it be possible for you to discuss the Tapestry influence on ASP.NET at a higher level.

Not much detail except that asp.net is like tapestry.
But there are posts that conclude that Tapestry is cleaner than ASp.NET


Anyway w'd be great if the author could provide his insights.

To know the relative merits / demerits.
Tapestry definitely seems to be a precursor to ASP.NET.
ASP.NET web forms is considered to be a great innovation coming from the .NET world. If MS has really been influenced by the design of tapestry, then I think it w'd be relatively easier for me to sell tapestry to my manager.

Yes, you are right.

I doubt Tapestry is on Microsoft's radar. It's on the JSF team's radar, though.

There are, after all, only so many ways to skin a cat. From what I can see about WebForms, it isn't as rich as Tapestry in many ways; for example, it requires client-side JavaScript, all links are actually form submissions in disguise and (correct me if I'm wrong) each page can only have a single form.

Tapestry allows real links, many forms per page, highly dynamic forms (i.e., with looping, such as within an e-commerce shopping cart) and much more.

Then do you see yourself getting involved in the JSF spec team anytime soon?
Guess would do lot of good to the spec.
