[A&E] Last Call comments (2): discovery & localization

The below comments refer to:

Widgets 1.0: The widget Interface

Editor's Draft 14 September 2009


Configuration Attributes Table does not contain features/params.

We may assume that when the widget gets installed and loaded, the mandatory (@required=true) features were present/accessible.

However, the widget does not know whether the optional features (@required=false)  are present/accessible.

Therefore, I suggest adding the list of available features to the widget object. E.g. as an array of IRI or by means of a query API (or shall hasFeature() work? Not sure why it was removed from the previous WD) so that the widget could discover the available components/features.



Shall it be possible for the widget to programmatically discover the localization path it was loaded from (section 9 of P&C)?

[ I understand the folder-based and element-based localizations are specified in P&C and wonder why it is not possible to programmatically discover the localization that was applied (it could also help with testing IMHO). ]
