This is still an incubation paper. By now we have only some comments
about how inner OpenXava works.
module.jsp > core.jsp > *.jsp
The info about the modes available, the current mode, the actions
available, etc are obtained from ModuleManager.
ModuleManager gets its info from the metamodel that are the classes from
org.openxava.application.meta and org.openxava.controller.meta. The info
of this model is readed from application.xml and controllers.xml
openxava.js >--DWR--> org.openxava.web.dwr.Module --> execute.jsp
After ModuleManager executes the action, dwr.Module ask to the current
View by the part of the view that has been changed. Then execute only the
correspoinding JSPs for these parts, and return the HTML chunks to the
browser view DWR. In the browser a function of openxava.js change the
corresponding parts of the view.
detail.jsp draws the detail view. It uses many other JSP files in web/xava
folder. The data to draw the view is obtained from View, who get its data
from metadata of the model clases (org.openxava.model.meta). This metadata
is readed from the JPA entites in AnnotatedClassParser.
