Hi All,
This is my first email on this group. I come from Struts Background
and lately I started with GEF. Both the frameworks are based on MVC. One
feature I like most in Struts is I am able to externalize my mappings
(HTTP to Receivers (action Objects)), so that I can change the mappings
without any change in my code. I have been working with GEF and I have
always been comparing it with Struts framework ᅵ though they both are
intended for different purposes. One thing that struck me most in GEF was
I had to describe my policies into an Edit part, Every time I have to make
any change in the policy ( Add new policy, Delete, etc), I had to make the
changes in the code. What if I donï¿œt have much knowledge of all these
edit parts and policies?
I have been thinking towards externalizing the policy description in
GEF. By this I mean having a configurations file (same as
struts-config.xml in Struts) and writing my policies that an EditPart can
hold in the file. This will allow me to do all my policy updations without
having much knowledge about the code.
I would like to get all your suggestions towards how should I go ahead
implementing the same.
I hope this makes some sense.
