Redirection after action makes sense, since per the spec, refreshing your page after an action should not trigger the action once again.
How comes your code is dependent on URLs ? It shouldn't.
Yes, I understand that after action redirection must take place. An how about render request? Just after switching from 2.0 to 2.2 I was sure that after render request there would be no redirection. But 2.2 did it. So I made some modifications to my code. But since 2.2.1rc3 or maybe earlier redirections are gone. Even after action requests. Here are packet dumps from ethereal sniffer that show 2.2.0 and 2.2.1rc3 behaviour when just switching current theme in theme selector portlet.
So I have the following questions:
what behaviour is correct for action requests?
what is for render requests?
what will be or should be implemeted in jbp?
and the last one - can I email you or somebody from jbp team directly?
thanks a lot
I looked into jsr168 spec and found that redirecting after action request is not part of the spec (PLT5.2.4), but portal container may use redirections after action requests(PLT18.104.22.168). And one important thing that I found is that render request (I mean following RenderURL link) is just the special action request, just without actual processing (not invoking processAction method) and simply passing render parameters to render method(PLT7.1)
So, in this way I still have a question:
will the 2.2.1rc3 and maybe later jbp versions follow the consideration that action or render requests will not be followed with redirections or 2.2.1rc3 has a bug and 2.2.0 behaviour(with redirections) wiil be back again?
If jbp use redirections than I must supply navigational links like go back on most of my pages, because due to redirections working on single portal page I see the same url and pressing Back button in my browser will not get me back to previous view while without redirections I can use browser's buttons.
As for me I already implemented everything having redirections in mind and was confused after switching to 2.2.1rc3 which doesn't use them.
Please, help me to decide - either to make changes to my code or wait until next version with redirections.
By the way - is there any info on the web about using prefix mappers like CMSObjectCommandMapper?
