UserRegion in non Java artifacts? [message #43015] Thu, 13 March 2008 01:14 Go to next message

Does UserRegion and InitialCode work in non Java artifacts? Say a JSP file?
or a properties file? If so are there any tricks? I tried with a
template that produces a JSP file and it always regenerates the contents...
I'm using Jet 0.8.2

Thanks,
Gary

Gary:

Yes, it does - I use it to generate JET templates :-). Typical usage:

<c:userRegion> put some unique-to-the-file marker here<c:initialCode>
... put your initial code here...
</c:initialCode>put a closing marker here - it shouldn't appear (or be
likely to appear in the user code)</c:userRegion>

Often, you use a c:get tag in the unique marker area to generate the marker.

Tips:
1) Reduce the use of whitespace in the opening and closing markers. If you
do any indenting of the markers, do it befor the <c:userRegion> and
</c:initialCode> tags
2) To minimize whitespace, use the form above.

If this works out, why not update the JET FAQ? Here's a link to the current
article:
