This means being able to use model data inside Java Script files in the same way it can be done in HTML files, but with Java Script-specific integrations such as specialized escaping or template mode will simply not process templates at all.It is meant to be used for inserting untouched resources (files, URL responses, etc.) into the templates being processed.No validation or well-formedness check will be performed, and template code/structure will be respected to the biggest possible extent in output. In this case, code is expected to be well-formed – no unclosed tags, no unquoted attributes, etc – and the parser will throw exceptions if well-formedness violations are found.Note that no template mode will allow the use of a special syntax for templates of a non-markup nature.We have already seen two types of valid attribute values expressed in this syntax: message and variable expressions: But there’s one aspect we still haven’t thought of: what happens if the message text is not completely static?What if, for example, our application knew who is the user visiting the site at any moment and we wanted to greet them by name?*/ $ $ /* * Indexed access to arrays or collections is also performed with brackets, * writing the index without quotes.
There are some specialized expressions that we will be able to use to obtain the request parameters and the request, session and application attributes from the With our context object ready, now we can tell the template engine to process the template (by its name) using the context, and passing it a response writer so that the response can be written to it: We will take a small break in the development of our grocery virtual store to learn about one of the most important parts of the Thymeleaf Standard Dialect: the Thymeleaf Standard Expression syntax.
Thymeleaf has also been designed from the beginning with Web Standards in mind – especially HTML5 – allowing you to create fully validating templates if that is a need for you.
template mode will allow any kind of HTML input, including HTML5, HTML 4 and XHTML.
First, the template mode: needs, although there are many others that will be covered later (message resolvers, cache sizes, etc). Our Template Engine is now ready and we can start creating our pages using Thymeleaf.
The first thing you will notice is that this file is HTML5 that can be correctly displayed by any browser because it does not include any non-HTML tags (browsers ignore all attributes they don’t understand, like files will be used, but we could create our own implementations if we wanted, for example, to obtain messages from a database.For example, while a JSP using tag libraries could include a fragment of code not directly displayable by a browser like: Not only will this be correctly displayed by browsers, but this also allow us to (optionally) specify a value attribute in it (“James Carrot”, in this case) that will be displayed when the prototype is statically opened in a browser, and that will be substituted by the value resulting from the evaluation of during processing of the template.
