Projects / Sotacs


Sotacs is a collection of components for the Tapestry Web Framework. It provides 'NavigationBar', a JavaScript-powered hierarchical navigation bar with collapsable folders, mouse-over highlighting, and selection highlighting, 'DynamicImage', which produces JPEG or PNG images on the server with an AWT-like painting listener method and sophisticated caching options, 'AjaxTextField', an AJAX powered text field that supports auto-complete hints in a pop-up box, and 'TransparentPNG', which makes alpha-transparent .png images display correctly on all browsers incuding Internet Explorer 5.

    Release Notes: A bug in DynamicImage was fixed.

    •  13 Oct 2006 09:08

      Release Notes: An API was added to DynamicImage to generate image maps with tooltips. It is also possible to add both JavaScript and/or DirectLink events to the map areas. The "encoding" parameter was introduced into NavigationBar, allowing non-ASCII characters to be interpreted correctly by the caching mechanism. Menu intialization is performed inmediately after inserting the menu in the page. The DTD for the validation of the XML is now retrieved from the library.

        Release Notes: ehcache was updated to 1.2.3. This version of ehcache supports automatic expiration of images so that image caching becomes much more effective. It is no longer necessary to worry about idle time in the ehcache configuration.
