EventBroker with WCSF

Dec 20, 2007 at 5:35 AM
I have been working on the smart client for a while and really like the EventBorker feature that brings in loose coupling among the modules.

Is there a way to publish/subscribe events among modules of WCSF, I don’t see EventBroker project as part of CompositeWeb project.

Is event pub-sub against web app philosophy, or is it a feature just not added and can be extended.

Is there an extension already available to the June 2007 release?

Hi.

You can download the EventBroker Extension from Web Client Software Factory Contrib:


The EventBroker Extension (EB) consists of two parts which may be used individually: A Generic Mediator and a per request based Event Broker. The latter is complete with an event broker strategy and sanity check for your web application at application Start.

The smart client world is as we all know different from our world which is request based with instances of pages living only through one request on the application server. In order for web applications to reach better UI composability a lightweight event broker system can be used. The EventBroker is such an extension.


Thanks.
