public class TilesConfigurer
extends WebApplicationObjectSupport
implements InitializingBean

Helper class to configure Tiles 1.x for the Spring Framework. See http://struts.apache.org for more information about Struts Tiles, which basically is a templating mechanism for JSP-based web applications.

NOTE: This TilesConfigurer class supports Tiles 1.x, a.k.a. "Struts Tiles", which comes as part of Struts 1.x. For Tiles 2.x support, check out TilesConfigurer.

The TilesConfigurer simply configures a Tiles DefinitionsFactory using a set of files containing definitions, to be accessed by TilesView instances.

TilesViews can be managed by any ViewResolver. For simple convention-based view resolution, consider using UrlBasedViewResolver with the "viewClass" property set to "org.springframework.web.servlet.view.tiles.TilesView".

A typical TilesConfigurer bean definition looks as follows:

 <bean id="tilesConfigurer" class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.tiles.TilesConfigurer">
   <property name="definitions">
     <list>
       <value>/WEB-INF/defs/general.xml</value>
       <value>/WEB-INF/defs/widgets.xml</value>
       <value>/WEB-INF/defs/administrator.xml</value>
       <value>/WEB-INF/defs/customer.xml</value>
       <value>/WEB-INF/defs/templates.xml</value>
     </list>
   </property>
 </bean>
The values in the list are the actual files containing the definitions.
