Re: Upgrading from 3.0.3 to 4.0.1 in AppFuse

1) Why not have a custom StaleSession.html page?
Its pageBeginRender could redirect to the login form, couldn't it?

2) Remove the servlet mapping

3) For cookies, see org.apache.tapestry.services.CookieSource and inject it
using service:tapestry.request.CookieSource
For redirects, see 5)

4) ...

5) Review http://jakarta.apache.org/tapestry/UsersGuide/listenermethods.html :)
.. and return an ILink instance from your listener
