The controller is a Java program that is used to glue UI (view) and Data (model) together.

For a simple UI, there is no need of controller. For example, the data of a Listbox could be abstracted by implementing ListModel.

For typical database access, the glue logic (i.e., control) can be handled by a generic feature called Data Binding. In other words, the read and write operations can be handled automatically by a generic Data Binding, and you don't need to write the glue logic at all.

In this section we will discuss how to implement a custom controller (aka., a composer).

Custom Controller

A custom controller is also know as a composer (in ZK).

To implement a custom controller, you could extend from GenericForwardComposer, or implement Composer from scratch. Then, specify it in the element it wants to handle in a ZUML document.
