Tapestry development: which project format?

I am about to start a Tapestry project in IDEA.

It seems that a regular Java project is the best approach. Is there any value to using a Web project?

Yes, we use Web modules so that resources such as Tapestry page/component specifications get copied over to their respective locations under the exploded WAR directory at project compile time.

We also find it very useful to start our servlet container with the org.apache.tapestry.disable-caching system property set to true to force Tapestry to load specifications from the file system at development time.

Hope it helps.
