Add button to show.jspx in spring roo mvc project

I created a spring roo project using Getting Started with Spring Roo as a starting point. The project is created in STS using roo 1.1.5. I have added a neo4j plot and can create nodes with simple edges and create a web part that outputs "controller all -package ~ .web".

The project is a simple web application with a node character and race and a contributor grant with start time, end time, total time, and race. Since the Edge Member is @RelatedToVia, it becomes @RelationshipEntity and I want to add a button to save the Member.

I found WEB-INF / tags / form / field / table.tagx where add, edit, delete and friends buttons are defined, i.e .:

      <c:if test="${update}">
        <td class="utilbox">



But where to set the variable update? I looked at the code generated by STS but couldn't find it. Sorry if it's obvious.

Regards Klaus


I found out that WEB-INF / tags / form / show.tagx have buttons to turn on / off, like refresh buttons:

<c:if test="${empty update}">
  <c:set var="update" value="true" />


So, I will add a new button to this file. The spring framework seems to be laid out so well. You just need to find different places.

The value for is update

obtained from the attributes that you specify when using a tag created with tagx


As an example,

If form:table

used as in jspx

, and if the following was set: you will get true

in your variable update

if it was assigned using the directive. However, it seems to be true

set by default in a tag form:table

inside Spring Roo.

If you want to set to false, when using, you must set the value for the attribute as follows.

<form:table update="false" />

If you want to dive deeper into this, take a look at the file table.tagx

you mentioned, you will find the following line that explains it.

<jsp:directive.attribute name="update" type="java.lang.Boolean" required="false" rtexprvalue="true" description="Include 'update' link into table (default true)" />
