public class LiteralBinding
extends AbstractBinding

Binding type for literal, immutable values. Literal bindings are invariant; any value provided by a LiteralBinding, even if coerced, will be cached aggresively by Tapestry cmponent.

LiteralBindings are often used for literal string values supplied in-line in the component template, but is used for many other things as well, any kind of fixed, read-only value.
