MLTP stands for Model Logical-Template Push. The model (AKA domain object) gives the data required for logical-template. Logical Template could be a reusable custom template class containing wff java code which can generate a piece of html for the UI. Push, which is done by the framework internally itself when a template/layout is embedded by another template and we don't have to take care about the push part.

Logical-template is a reusable template class which can generate a specific portion of a ui with needful functionalities. The below code shows a simple example for Logical-template. The logical template may be provided model to show required data (it's not included in the below code but you can simply modify). The mere responsibility of a logical-template class is to generate a specific portion for ui with functionalities

    	        ownerTag.removeAttributes(countryColumnStyle.getAttributeName());
    	    }
    	}
    
    	return null;
    }

}

Later you can add this template class to any specific portion of ui, eg:

ListUsersTempate listUsers = new ListUsersTempate();

//suppose you have a div in the ui to add, then

div.appendChild(listUsers);
