Wro4j resource management¶
Wro4j lib is used to manage resources of the web applications. Mostly, it
builds dependency tree between js source files
compiles less files
manages live update in development mode
manages caching in production mode
When the AngularJs entry module is
gn_search_geoportal, the wro4j entry point
is the key
gn_search_geoportal as well, that means that it is the file that
That is why you need to be sure there is a good mapping between AngularJs module dependencies and wro4j dependency tree.
For example, when you have this for wro4j:
goog.provide('gn_search_default'); goog.require('gn_search'); goog.require('gn_search_default_config'); goog.require('gn_related_directive');
You need to be sure you create your AngularJs module with same dependency injection:
var module = angular.module('gn_search_default', [ 'gn_search', 'gn_search_default_config', 'gn_related_directive' ]);
Whenever you change a
goog.provide statements, you need to relaunch
wro4j dependency tree creation. This can be done with Jetty or Tomcat restart.
Following this principles, you are now free to add new modules, components, directives or services to your application.
