module ActionController #:nodoc:
  # Components allow you to call other actions for their rendered response while executing another action. You can either delegate
  # the entire response rendering or you can mix a partial response in with your other content.
  #
  #   class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
  #     # Performs a method and then lets hello_world output its render
  #     def delegate_action
  #       do_other_stuff_before_hello_world
  #       render_component :controller => "greeter",  :action => "hello_world", :params => { :person => "david" }
  #     end
  #   end
  #
  #   class GreeterController < ActionController::Base
  #     def hello_world
  #       render :text => "#{params[:person]} says, Hello World!"
  #     end
  #   end
  #
  # The same can be done in a view to do a partial rendering:
  #
  #   Let's see a greeting:
  #   <%= render_component :controller => "greeter", :action => "hello_world" %>
  #
  # It is also possible to specify the controller as a class constant, bypassing the inflector
  # code to compute the controller class at runtime:
  #
  # <%= render_component :controller => GreeterController, :action => "hello_world" %>
  #
  # == When to use components
  #
  # Components should be used with care. They're significantly slower than simply splitting reusable parts into partials and
  # conceptually more complicated. Don't use components as a way of separating concerns inside a single application. Instead,
  # reserve components to those rare cases where you truly have reusable view and controller elements that can be employed
  # across many applications at once.
  #
  # So to repeat: Components are a special-purpose approach that can often be replaced with better use of partials and filters.
