    Hi.

    What component should I use to include a page from a given url into a tapestry page, like you would using the jsp include directive or action tag?

    Thanks in advance.

    p.s. I need this for including common elements such as sidebar and header.

    thanks

    In Tapestry you will create a component that contains the header and sidebar and use that component in your pages. For an example look at the Border component used in the Virtual Library application included with the Tapestry distribution.

    Thanks. That Virtual Library web app is very interesting.

    Took me a while to get it working (sort of) though. The supplied ant scripts only work with an older version of JBoss. Instead of, or better still in addition to providing these super automatic installation ant scripts (which work selectively), they should give simple instructions detailing which files you need to copy to which locations. That should be simple enough, and would benifit users using any container. Or may be I'm just ranting.


    Thanks again.

    I really think the scripts approach is better, even if it requires an older JBoss version. The directions and changes to make are very tedious! More people will see the live demo this way.

    There is word of a port of VLib to JDO, which may remove the need for a container entirely. We may see this in the 3.1 timeframe.
