I lieu of some actual code, I thought I’d post a high-ish level overview diagram of how commands are executed and handled. Those of you who’ve used “XWork”:http://wiki.opensymphony.com/space/XWork may notice that it looks very familiar – which is unsuprising given that I had no problems with XWorks design itself. The real benifit of this framework over XWork (in addition to the fact that it has a more fully featured IoC framework) will be that it will have a whole host of cloesly integrated UI helper classes thanks to the “spring-rcp”:http://jroller.com/page/kdonald/20040225 project. Due to the nature of XWork (being the underpining of “WebWork”:http://www.opensymphony.com/webwork/) restructuring it to fit in with my goals was a non-starter.
The code is coming together nicely – adding the @ValidationInterceptor@ is my next job, followed by the @ResultInterceptor@ – both of which should be fairly easy.
