What is SiteMesh?

Note

Joe, I am going to write this last once I get the main content flushed out. I have access to Marketing experts who can help with the landing page once they see what the site is about. Maybe even consider videos to get newbies a quick view of SiteMesh.

Until this page is done, I'll use this as a dashboard for the progression of the migration of SiteMesh 2.

With Joe's help grabbed what I could. Per Joe's comment blank and example wars are more confusing than helpful so no longer on site.

Like the Cappucino website, will move this as a subsection of Learn and point to API documentation.

Currently pointing to the OpenSymphony SiteMesh 2.4.1 API docs. Where do I get the most current?

Tip

SiteMesh 3 has been officially released.

 

SiteMesh is a lightweight and flexible Java web application framework that applies the Gang of Four decorator pattern to allow a clean separation of content from presentation.

Work with the content of your website and have the appropriate look and feel applied (decorated) just before delivery to a PC or Mobile device.

At the same time, SiteMesh has many advanced features and works with popular frameworks such as Spring and Struts.

Why Use SiteMesh

Write your content once and present it in many different ways,

Let's Hear Some More

SiteMesh uses Filters introduced since Java Servlet version 2.3.

  • SiteMesh intercepts responses to generated HTML and merges it with decorator(s) to build the final result.
  • SiteMesh can be used in Java based web-applications, or applied to content as an offline job.
  • Enterprise class web applications and products such as Atlasssian Confluence use SiteMesh.

For a good overview, see Mike Cannon-Brookes' PowerPoint presented at the Vegas Server Side Symposium.
