easier migration from Tiles

JC
Hi all,
do you have any hints, links, tools, caveats, anything, which would ease the migration of Tiles-based jspx templates to Thymeleaf? I know it won't kill me to redo them by hand :) but I guess any previous experience can only help me...
Thanks!
JC

Thank you for your answer. The thing is, I knew that blog entry - it actually seems really the ONLY thing on the whole web mentioning both technologies, and doesn't go any bit beyond the "Hello world" level. In such, it's just as useful as a disco-bar flyer :)

Eh, a XML migration tool would have been a blast... thing is, I have some dozens of JSPX files around and if that petty blog entry is all migration help there is, I'm left with a many days task of rewriting everything almost from scratch. Doable, but... yuckies. On a positive side, I could even see it as chance to cleanup stuff.

So, I better start now writing those htmls as it looks they won't write themselves.

Thanks,
JC

If you want a bigger example, check out that one
   https://github.com/SpringSource/spring-webflow-samples/tree/master/booking-mvc
from the Spring-Webflow examples.

About a "migration tool", I can assure you that there is no such thing :-|
