Tapestry offers true event-driven, component-oriented web development. The concepts in Tapestry are not new in traditional desktop development, but are mostly foreign to even seasoned web developers. For many, this can be a dramatic paradigm shift. The purpose of this session is to introduce Tapestry beginning with its original design goals through interactive demonstrations.
Everything in Tapestry is a component. Custom components behave identically to the built-in components, and developing them is straightforward. Beyond user interface components, though, is the pluggable services architecture allowing for all core features to be extended and customized.
This tutorial will be highly interactive, with coding a sophisticated web application on-the-fly demonstrating the speed and sophistication which comes from using this wonderful framework.
