I came across Spring Surf on my last contract and liked it a lot. How many people here are using it or have taken a look at it? http://www.springsource.org/extensions/se-surf I'm curious cause its quite new (incubator status) but gives a nice light-weight way of defining "tiles" with their own controllers (written in server-side javascript).

My guess is this. It is new. It got created because Spring Roo was using Tiles. And so they created Surf to work with Tiles in a Roo app. When I used Roo, one of the things that I didn't like was that it used Tiles. I prefer xhtml files with templating that way, it is much cleaner and you can't abuse it as easily as you can with Tiles.

Since it is new, there isn't a lot of people yet using it or aware of it. As more people use Roo more people will be aware of Surf.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
