Any updates on customizing the UI?
Any updates on customizing the UI?
I want to modify the UI, don't know how, Also how to implement security in that
Any updates on this? I'm also stuck...
Take a look at the Jira issue tracker: http://jira.springframework.org/browse/ROO
The 1.1.1 release (due on Friday) has issues ROO-1280 & ROO-1443 which appear to address this problem.
Hopefully once these problems are fixed it will be possible to make changes to your Roo projects views without the risk of Roo overwriting them next time you make changes to an entity.
Hey Everyone, better documentation is coming very shortly. First we needed to make the GWT addon more Roo-like in that we wanted to establish fairly explicit rules on what Roo will and won't touch. This proved a tad challenging due to GWT not support Roo's ace in the hole, ITDs.
To achieve the same sort of functionality we have used an abstract-concrete model where Roo maintains the abstract and you are free to override in the concrete - we never touch the concrete, NEVER. This works well and you can now launch Roo without fear of it blowing away your precious edits. It also provides an experience consist to other frontend addons where your changes to the entities cause Roo to manage the UI.
Any news on the documentation?
Throw a dog a bone, please with some documentation please on GWT addon
or a blog on how to customize stuff
Hey simonwhelan76, what areas of customisation do you want to know about and I will sure to include them.
Top of the list wish is some blog / documentation on how to integrate Roo 1.1.1 / GWT 2.1.1 with Spring Security 3.
If this is not possible right now, could you explain why we cannot get hooks to check auth on each request using RequestFactory. Personally I don't really understand this whole thing and would really love to just know more.
Secondly, a blog / doc's or sample app on the proper use of
proper use of Annotation Types
1. @Service(value = someDao.class, locator = SomeDaoServiceLocator.class)
Perhaps expand the expenses.roo sample to add some business logic
1. Employee / Manager relationship, and only manager can approve reports
2. People in certain departments cannot create reports
Thirdly how about giving a GWT version of this blog http://stsmedia.net/introducing-spri...email-support/ on email integration with GWT's RequestFactory.
Fourth, just some in depth and very technical article on how the whole GWT generation process works. The more technical the better.
I'm not asking for this because I'm lazy, I just don't get it. At my level of expertise I need more information to grasp these concepts and with no documentation on the GWT site covering any of this and no books / blogs etc available, its become a really challenge
Ok clap, clap to the GWT / Roo team,its your job and ye work on this everyday, ye have colleagues to ask questions and a lot more resources. But the average developer doesn't have these resources.
The name of this post is "Tutorial/material for how to customize the ROO + GWT project? " and its got 1,824 unique views. Almost 10 X times the average post, and it began back in 9th Oct 2010 (I'm just pointed at this one, there's lot's of other post looking for doc's / code sample etc) and still no official documentation has come from the Spring Roo / GWT addon team (I'm not taking about 2.1 doc's that are on the GWT site).
The expenses.roo sample hasn't changed / update for new functionality in ages (it doesn't even include the 1:m, m:n relationship stuff that was added). How about providing a example that show's off all the functionality that's available, or multiple samples...after all its a script (or please point me to the test script that your using)
Well anyway, I'm pretty burnt with trying to follow this project and I'm sure there's a couple of developers from the 1,824 that have taken the time to read this forum posting that feel the same.
James you do a great job of answering peoples post both here and on the issue tracker and for that were all very thankful, sorry if this comes across harsh, its just honest frustration. Doc's are coming, doc's are coming soon, ya right, like I pointed out above this post started back last October.
Please other added your 2 cents, and disagree with me if you think I'm completely wrong.
For other people reading this post here are some useful blog post
This is a free product and we all appreciate the effort but at the same time we need to express our frustration and experiments to point out the issues for the sake of the community.
Personally, I am not a newbie in any of the technologies. I have Spring, hibernate, AspectJ background and we are currently creating a massive GWT application at work (GWT 2.0) yet I haven't been able to put a decent application together that goes beyond learning purposes. I have been postponing my own project (done without Roo) since last June for the promising Roo+GWT to come. Roo users are pointing out the need for m:n entity relationship, sample authentication with spring security 3.0 and customizing the generated app for so long and yet we hear about improving auto completion of roo command!!! As a user I can type my own command please expand on the base example or enlighten me about how I can expand on the generated app, change it, customize it, add search capabilities and many other very needed features in any trivial real world app.
