      Description

      Suppose there is a component that uses a certain asset (for example DateField). I want to extend it.
      For example:

      package mypackage.testapp.components;
      import org.apache.tapestry5.corelib.components.DateField;
      public class MyDateField extends DateField {
      }

      If i change the asset and put it in a new classpath, then everything is fine.
      But if i want to override only a class and use the already existing asset, then i get the error:

      Unable to locate asset 'classpath:mypackage/testapp/components/datefield.gif' (the file does not exist).

      It seems to me it would be nice if the classpath assets could be inheritable like templates.
