Affects Version/s: 2.2.0, 2.1.0
Fix Version/s: None
I have a large web application composed from several independent modules packaged as separate .jar files in WEB-INF/lib.
Now Click force me to copy all my .htm files (Page Templates) to 'main' module's webRoot folder (parent folder of WEB-INF), because Click look for templates only in webRoot folder and its subfolders (see XmlConfigService.getTemplateFiles), and then I have big htm midden in webRoot.
I can't make reusable just-drop-in jar-module for somebody else.
I have to make separate zip with htm templates with readme.txt with instructions where to copy them.
Please! Add option to look Page templates in classpath too.
See - http://static.springsource.org/spring/docs/2.0.x/reference/resources.html#resources-app-ctx-wildcards-in-resource-paths -
how I use Spring for building these separate jar with separate spring's xmls into one application.
See also excellent article about this modular concept:
I.e. Click could look in (for example) META-INF/ClickPageTemplates for Page mappings.
Then both Velocity and Freemarker can load templates from classpath.
PS: It looks like hand-made-OSGi.
