Tapestry JumpStart

The Tapestry JumpStart project provides a fully functional example application demonstrating some commonly used/needed functionality in typical Tapestry applications.


  • A login screen with basic authentication.
  • These pre-built tables and entities: Users, Roles, Codes and CodeGroups.
  • Screens to search, create, edit, and delete them.
  • All the source.
  • The Back button. JumpStart uses a flow synchronizer to handle the re-posting problems caused by the Back button, Refresh button, and double-clicking on Submit buttons.
  • Navigating back. JumpStart implements a callback stack to answer the question "where did I come from".
  • Date handling. JumpStart uses the joda-time classes, and provides validators, translators, and a date picker for them.
  • Localization. JumpStart illustrates Tapestry's localization mechanism in action.
  • Client Persistence. JumpStart implements the "client:form" strategy.
  • Business and data layer. JumpStart uses EJB3, without the need for value objects/DTOs.
