A best practice question

Hello Dear Robotlegs users.

Having used Robotlegs for a long time I notice some habits in the way I do things and it's interesting to get other peeps feedback on best approach.

When communicating between two mediators (i.e) two views exchanging some information, I often have one mediator dispatch a framework event that another mediator catches. For example NavigatorMediator dispatches an event that a ViewMediator catches.


Buuut, notice I do not have an intermediary command as I tend to use those mostly to operate on model, service, or proxy. Would you say that it's a better practice to:

Communicate between mediators over commands.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Thomas,

    There is no need to use a Command in order to communicate between Mediators, in my opinion.
    One Mediator dispatches an Event, the other Mediator listens for it. Done.
