Spring Web Flow and Apache Tiles are two separate frameworks. We only saw the minimum required concepts to get a quick overview of these frameworks in this chapter. In the beginning, we learned some of the basic concepts of the Spring Web Flow framework and then created the checkout flow for our webstore application. In the second part of this chapter, we saw how to use and leverage the Apache Tiles framework in order to bring maximum reusability in view files and maintain a consistent look and feel throughout all the web pages of our application.
In the next chapter, we will see how to test our web application using various APIs provided by Spring MVC.
