Apache Tiles 2.2.2 has been released and declared of GA quality.
New features are:
- Native support for FreeMarker, instead of a support based on JSP.
- Support for Velocity.
- Support for pattern matching using regular expressions.
- OGNL support and MVEL support in Tiles definition files, when specifying attributes and templates.
- Ready to use configuration classes to ease startup with minimal coding.
Notice that parameter-based configuration is now deprecated, but some useful configuration classes are provided to do configuraton with minimal coding.
Feature-complete configuration allows to load all the features available in Tiles. It loads also all "tiles*.xml" files in one shot, when put under /WEB-INF or /META-INF of any package.
Modular configuration allows to specify initializers in manifest files, to initialize different Tiles container per package.
