Hi Guys!!!

I'm studying JForum and would like a north to understand the JForum's View Layer.

I think it's not JSP, is it correct?

Taking a look around forum_login.htm page, for example, there are lots of tags like these:



I'm not an expert about it, and would appreciate any orientation... some Google keywords are welcome!!!

But how do they bring data from the backend ?
how are they making connections in between front-end and back-end ?
for e.g. ${JForumContext.encodeURL("/rss/forumTopics/${forum.id}")}

That URL takes you to RSSActon in the code. That's the front end layer in Java. It makes calls to the relevant DAO which is the back end.

Thanks Jeanne..!!
Took the reference from your reply and did a little bit of digging. Now the flow is crystal clear to me.
modulesMapping.properties is basically responsible to map the particular htm to the corresponding DAO.

Right. Glad you see the flow now. That's the key to understanding the software - knowing where to look!

Actually i am working on the design change of the existing JForum view layers.
I have already initiated a topics here but unfortunately didn't get any reply on it
It would be so helpful if you could put some of your insights into it.
