Comment: Fix broken cwiki-test images


The rendering of each component is divided into a number of phases, illustrated below.

Image AddedImage Removed
Each of the orange phases (SetupRender, BeginRender, BeforeRenderBody, etc.) corresponds to an annotation you may place on one or more methods of your class. The annotation directs Tapestry to invoke your method as part of that phase.


All Render phase methods are optional; a default behavior is associated with each phase.


Method Name

When Called



When initial setup actions, if any, are needed



When Tapestry is ready for the component's start tag, if any, to be rendered



Before Tapestry renders the component's template, if any



Before Tapestry renders the body of the component, if any



After Tapestry renders the body of the component, if any, but before the rest of the component's template is rendered



After Tapestry finishes rendering the component's template, if any



After Tapestry has finished rendering both the template and body of the component



When final cleanup actions, if any, are needed

The large number of phases reflects the need for precise control of components from component mixins. Several of the phases exist almost exclusively for mixins.
