This is a simple JSP custom tags library with tag body. Just like the JSF counterpart , it splits a string and repeats the body for each word, i.e., with this markup: <%@ taglib uri="http://custom.tag.com/demo" prefix... output: <html> <body> <p>Hello Tigger!</p> <p>H... With Maven, this is the directory structure: ./src ./src/main ./src/main/resources ./s... There are three files to write: pom.xml : <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... src/main/java/tagdemo/IterateTag.java : package tagdemo; import java.io.IOException... src/main/resources/META-INF/demotag.tld : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DO... Build with: mvn clean install To use it as a dependency in other Maven projects: <dependency> <groupId>tag-demo</groupId> ...

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...

The <h:outputText> tag generates different output for body text and value attribute. I tested the following with Apache MyFaces 2.1.3: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Stric... With value attribute, the output was: <table border='1' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='4'>... With text in body, the output was (i.e., the text was escaped despite escape="false" ): &lt;table border='1' cellspacing='0' cellpadding='...

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 step-by-step example to create a really simple facelet taglib (in JSF 2 with Maven). Create a simple Maven project with: mvn archetype:create -DgroupId=com.example -Dartif... Three files are created as a result: pom.xml src/main/java/com/example/App.java src/test/java/com/example/AppTest.java This project should be able to build with: mvn package Add facelet API dependencies to pom.xml : <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.... The compiler plugin section is optional. Remove src/main/java/com/example/App.java , create a new Java class as the facelet Tag Handler ( HelloTagHandler.java ): package com.example; import java.io.IOExcep... This tag handler simply prints a "Hello" message. Create facelet tag declaration file src/main/resources/META-INF/hello.taglib.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <facelet... Build the JAR with mvn clean package Optionally, install it to the local repository: mvn install To use the taglib, simply drop the...

Using JSTL tags in JSF facelets is quite simple: just add the XML namespace for the JSTL tags and use them in the page. An example of using the <c:if> tag: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Trans...

In this example I'll add a parameter to a facelets template. The example contains three tabs, each tab points to a different page. The tab control is shared among all pages, therefore, it is put in the template. Starting from the simple facelet example , make these additions: Create a new template WEB-INF/templates/tabs.xhtml : <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Stric... Add a page for the about tab ( about.xhtml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <ui:comp... Add a page for the news tab ( news.xhtml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <ui:comp... Add a page for the partner tab ( partner.xhtml ): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <ui:comp... Build and re-deploy the application. Launch the browser and load page http://localhost:8080/facelet-demo/about.jsf . This is a screenshot:
