public final class: EnvEntryDecoratorMapper [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   com.opensymphony.module.sitemesh.mapper.AbstractDecoratorMapper
      com.opensymphony.module.sitemesh.mapper.ConfigDecoratorMapper
         com.opensymphony.module.sitemesh.mapper.EnvEntryDecoratorMapper

All Implemented Interfaces:
    DecoratorMapper

The EnvEntryDecoratorMapper allows the reference to a web-app environment entry for the decorator name, and falls back to ConfigDecoratorMapper's behavior if no matching environment entry is found.

In some cases, it's desirable to allow a deployer, as opposed to a developer, to specify a decorator. In a .WAR file, this can be very difficult, since decorator mappings are specified in decorators.xml (more or less). This mapper corrects that by allowing two types of mapping. If the decorator name is found in an <env-entry>, the entry's value is used as the decorator reference.

Known Issues:

  1. It still uses the decorator path (from decorators.xml). This needs to be corrected for full functionality. If anyone has a suggestion on how...
