??create flexible UI and business process layer(beyond CRUD) spring Roo + GWT
Even with 2.1 RC1, it seems like all managed files control full presentation interaction for User interface. Cannot figure out a way to customize full user interface interaction with the entity methods with their proxies and their generated places/activities/mappers/history/lists and add user defined new places and additional domain methods services to integrate spring integration, web services, other spring integrated mechanisms etc into the flow.
Struggling to see a way to build real business rules/process applications with this besides CRUD. Any guide on how to do this with gwt...seems like the code generator is very obtrusive and not intelligent that when new entities, fields, relations are added along with custom services/business rules or domain methods on the entity class for business process logic more than persistance, not clear cut on how to pursue.
I have played with adding entities and fields and getting any UI, service methods codified before get wiped out on the client layer, including the look and feel of the ui.xml.
A enterprise application example to generate and regenerate and customize full UI behavior with full gwt features of cell based widgets and customizable UIs looks very challenging. All the managed code seems very closed and too obtrusive to customization for user interaction and business process flexibility leveraging full power of GWT. Please correct me if I am wrong or guide to any code/documentation to correct this perception.

This was a broad question? To be more specific...Any suggestions on pattern on how to customize the roo generated code with the scaffold layer for a different look and feel? Thank you
