Let Graphics Designers work with the tools that they already understand and our productive with, such as Macromedia'sTM Dreamweaver. Jaydoh, even has a productivity aid that makes business objects look like library objects in Dreamweaver. Similarly, let Developers work with their favorite tools.

  • It's debugger agnostic - meaning any standard debugger can debug all logic, line to line.


  • What type of content can be used?

    • Any content type that is "text" based, such as: HTML, JSP, WML, XML/XSLT, VoxML, Java source, etc.

    Other noteworthy features:
    • The template mechanism supports nested templates.

    • It supports Placeholder Substitution. Placeholders can be defined within a Template or within Page Provider (e.g. images) and can be substituted later via a lookup into a PropertiesMap. Jaydoh's PropertiesMap object supports the standard Java properties format as well as an XML based format. In addition, Jaydoh's PropertiesMap collection enables properties to reference other properties for their value and support cascading.

    • Fully supports JSP markup.


    Summary

    The J2EE Composite View pattern identifies a recurring problem around an application's presentation layer and provides an abstract outline on how to solve the problem. Jaydoh's Template Mechanism is a fully functioning implementation of the Composite View pattern that provides a flexible and highly modular way of combining a series of static and dynamic components in a variety of ways.
