I found the Roo generated UI very useful as it sets up tiles, taglibs etc and provides a great way to learn how everything is working (I've used tiles before but only on a legacy Struts app, so not with Spring). I can see, however, how having it always generate this same UI for each new controller, etc can get old. From what I can tell there isn't currently a way to customize roo to change the look it generates (edit the default taglibs, default jspx files etc), I think it would be really useful to be able to do this then roo could be customized to match the look and feel of the particular app being worked on which would further reduce the need for customization after generation.

My point is that all data doesn't look the same. For now we can't ask Roo to adapt to our data models completely, but it can be made even more easy to get the components we don't want out of the way.
I also feel the Roo team sometimes make a poor job describing the design and technological choices they have made in a focused manner.
