Whiteboard discusson - Establish a 'myfaces-components-commons' jar?
- Mailing list threads
- Identify the common code?
The dojo infrastructural classes and with its dependencies into the Tomahawk HTML class and AddResource class
- Other reusable resources for a shared resource base
- Where will the code live?
- Split Tomahawk into multiple jars?
- Establish a separately versioned module?
- As part of the existing Shared module?
I propose that we use the commons jar to contain non-renderkit-specific components which should be usable in ANY JSF environment (Tobago, Tomahawk, Trinidad, ADFFaces, etc). This would include validators, converters, and non-rendering tags such as t:updateActionListener, t:aliasBean, t:saveState, a subclass of t:dataList that only iterates and doesn't render (always in simple mode), and whatever else we can identify as non-rendering. This commons jar is targeted at JSF users, not component developers. This commons jar would be available as part of a Tomahawk release, and would not be a separate release. We might distribute it as a separate product, but we would only release it when we release Tomahawk. -- Mike Kienenberger
I propose that we expand the existing shared module to be a place with common JSF code building block APIs that component developers can reuse. This would contain message bundle support, AddResource support, maybe dojo support, ValidatorBase, util classes, and so on. -- Mike Kienenberger
