MVCPortlet Proposal





------- Additional Comments From sweaver@rippe.com  2003-03-11 14:02 -------
Todd,

I think we need to make it clear that people should stop using the Jsp/Velocity 
portlet stuff and try to move to the MVC model.  However, I disagree with 
suggesting to developers that you shouldn't subclass GenericMVCPortlet.  Reason 
being is that I have subclassed VelocityPortlet in the past to add additional 
functionality to the base class.  Obiviously, we subclassed for backward 
compatibility and to make the existing model easier to maintain, but others may 
want to subclass for a myriad of different reasons, I don't think telling them 
their wrong is a good approach.

These are only my opinions, and invite you to convince my otherwise.  You may 
be able show me something I did not originally consider;)

I prefer not to require any modifications to the registry.  I don't want to 
take the chance of breaking someone's current implementation.  If it was 
something less invasive, I would consider it.  However, the portlet classes are 
the "bread and butter" of the end-user, and I don't want to mess with that, at 
least not now ;)

I would still like to here what the proposed change to the registry would have 
been.
