Our custom tag, as implemented in the previous note , is broken when a template is used. Create a template file ( home-template.xhtml ): <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Stric... and a test page that uses it ( home.xhtml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <ui:comp... Then request the page with URL: http://localhost:8080/facelet-demo/home.jsf?name=Jack . You'll find that our hello tag works inside ui:repeat but fails to get the value defined by ui:param ! What's the problem? Our hello tag implementation evaluated the EL with the wrong EL context! This is the corrected implementation: package com.example; import java.io.IOExcep...

This is an example that uses tag handler, UI component and renderer together to support a custom taglib. The main purpose is to show how these components play together.

These are the files: The tag handler ( src/main/java/com/example/ForeachTagHandler.java ): package com.example; import java.util.Map; ...

In the simple taglib example , I used a tag handler class to implement a taglib. This is an example to implement a taglib with a UI component. The purpose is to use a custom tag to split a string and print each part in a separate paragraph, i.e., print <p>john</p> <p>steve</p> <p>mike</p> with custom tag <my:foreach> : <my:foreach var="who" value="john steve mike"> ... These are the files: pom.xml <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... src/main/java/com/example/UIForeash.java : package com.example; import java.io.IOExcep... src/main/resources/META-INF/faces-config.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <faces-c... src/main/resources/META-INF/foreach.taglib.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <facelet... How to use: Put the JAR file generated by the above project in the WEB-INF/lib folder of the web app. If the web app is a Maven project, just add the taglib project as a dependency:...

This is a simple example to demonstrate the templating power of JSF facelets. If you've used struts tiles before, you'll recognize the simplicity of templating with facelets. I've stripped out everything else except the pages themselves, just to put our focus on facelets. This is a Maven based project, and you need Tomcat (or any servlet container) to run the resulting webapp. To begin with this is the list of files: ./pom.xml ./src/main/webapp/home.xhtml ./src... I left faces-config.xml in there for completeness sake, it may not be needed. The Maven POM ( pom.xml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <project... Web app configuration ( WEB-INF/web.xml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <web-app... Empty WEB-INF/faces-config.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- Thi... index.jsp is simply a redirect to home.jsf : <% response.sendRedirect("home.jsf"); %>...

The Android unit test framework is based on JUnit 3 , not JUnit 4. Test cases have to extend junit.framework.TestCase or a subclass (such as android.test.InstrumentationTestCase ). Tests are identified by public methods whose name starts with test , not methods annotated with @Test (as in JUnit 4). An Android test suite is packaged as an APK, just like the application being tested. To create a test package, first you need to identify the application package it is testing. Google suggests to put the test package source in a directory named tests/ alongside the src/ directory of the main application. At runtime, Android instrumentation loads both the test package and the application under test into the same process. Therefore, the tests can invoke methods on...

I have long noticed that IE8 displays a "broken page" icon while showing my web pages, but didn't pay much attention. Since the world in general considers IE to be broken, it's not so unlogical for IE to see much of the world as broken. Until one day I noticed that the Google home page was not "broken". Then I thought may be I should fix my pages also. So I moused over the "broken page" icon, and this is what I saw: Compatibility View: websites designed for older browsers will often look better, and problems such as out-of-place menus, images, or text will be corrected. Very descriptive indeed! Older browsers? Such as Firefox 1.5? When it comes to MS products, I often had better...

If CSS3 border-image is properly supported, making a rounded corner box is very easy. You just need a round corner image like this: The following markup: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" ... would render like this (try it in Firefox 3.5 and Google Chrome): However, IE as of version 8.0 does not support border-image . So until border-image is reliably supported in all major browsers, we still have to rely on tried and true tricks to make it work. In general, I found three general categories of tricks to make rounded corners: Good old tables. This trick creates a table of 9 cells and uses the 8 cells on the perimeter to render the borders and rounded corners. The central cell is used for...
