The default extension for JSF facelet files is .xhtml, which looks so out-of-date these days. I wanted to change the extension from .xhtml to .html, to make it look more modern, even though I still use JSF xhtml in reality. This didn't work ( web.xml ): <servlet-mapping> <servlet-name>Faces Ser... Using the servlet-mapping config without the context-param works, given that the actual file extensions are still .xhtml . But the caveat is, if you request the .xhtml file directly, it will be sent to the browser unprocessed. This worked: <servlet-mapping> <servlet-name>Faces Ser... I'm using myfaces 2.1.11.

This example came from the jQuery validation documentation. The required rule can be used to validate a required selection box when you set the value of the first option to empty. <!DOCTYPE HTML> <html> <head> <scrip... The error message is the title since no error message is specified. A more fully defined validation check would look like this: $('#my-form').validate({ errorElement: "p", ...

Once you apply a filter to a URL pattern: <filter-mapping> <filter-name>theFilter</fi... there's no option in web.xml to exclude a more specific pattern such as: /public/* . But you can put the exclusion logic in the filter itself: <filter> <filter-name>theFilter</filter-nam... And in the filter code: public void init(FilterConfig cfg) throws ServletE...

The servlet API allows servlet filters to be inserted into the processing cycle to form a Filter Chain . How is a chain defined, and what is the ordering of filters in the chain? The servlet filter chain is formed by defining multiple filters for the same servlet or URL pattern in web.xml . The order in which the filters are invoked is the same order as <filter-mapping> s appear in the web.xml file. For example, if this is defined in web.xml : <!-- Filter mapping --> <filter-mapping> ... then servletFilter2 will be applied before servletFilter . Actually, it's more accurate to imagine these filters as layers or wraps instead of chains. In the above example, servletFilter2 wraps servletFilter .

Here's the CSS: label.required { background: url(/img/requ... And the HTML: <label class="required">A required field</labe...

cURL is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax. The main purpose and use for cURL is to automate unattended file transfers or sequences of operations. It's really easy to see HTTP headers with curl: C:\>curl --head http://www.google.com HTTP/1.0 ... or, headers and page together (dump headers to stdout): $ curl --dump-header - http://www.google.com HTTP/...

The tags <c:if> The <c:if> tag may be used with or without body content: <!-- Without body content, used to export vari... In my opinion, the version without body content is pretty much useless (the <c:set> tag is a lot more meaningful for this purpose). If body content exists, it is inserted into the page if the testCondition is true . Optional attributes var and scope may be specified. If var is specified, a variable whose name is the value of var is exported to the associated scope ( pageScope if no scope is specified). The type of the exported variable is Boolean and its value is the value of the testCondition . <c:choose>, <c:when>, <c:otherwise> These tags imitate the Java control structure if...else...
