The improved custom taglib works with existing facelet ui taglibs. For example: <ui:param name="theName" value="John"/> <my:hel... produces the expected output. However, a problem exists with the ui:repeat tag: <h3>With ui:repeat</h3> <ui:repeat var="theName... When tested with a URL like: http://localhost:8080/facelet-demo/?name=Zack&name... the raw EL prints out the correct names, but my custom tag substitutes empty string for theName2 ! In theory, the response is rendered in the Render Response phase, way after the Apply Request Values phase, actual values should be available to EL. The answer to this anomaly turned out to be very deep ! Yes, right there in the code! I would consider this a bug in facelets implementation, but the JSF spec did not tell what the expected behavior should be. In my custom...

In the test for the simple taglib example , I used a literal string for the name attribute: <my:hello name="Jack"/> What happens if the name attribute contains EL expresson? For example: <my:hello name="#{param['name']}"/> If EL works, the tag should take the value of the " name " request parameter and print it out. But the tag as implemented in the simple taglib example prints the literal string: Hello #{param['name']}! I am FaceletTag. In order to make a tag to recognize EL, we have to use TagAttribute.getValue(FaceletContext ctx) instead of TagAttribute.getValue() . The latter returns the literal value of the attribute. The HelloTagHandler should be changed to: package com.example; import java.io.IOExcep... Rebuild the taglib and test with a URL like this: http://localhost:8080/facelet-test/?name=Jack The tag will print:...

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:

If you are looking for a solution for a progress bar, I direct you to the following resources: Bare Naked App provides a simple and elegant solution based on pure CSS with two images. You control the percentage of completion through the background-position attribute of the CSS. HTML: <img src="/images/percentImage.png" alt="... CSS: img.percentImage { background: white url(/imag... Images: (percentImage.png) (percentImage_back.png) WebAppers extended the above solution with JavaScript. They also added several colored images: JQuery UI has a built-in progress bar widget. However, if you want to get to understand some of the foobar needed to get CSS to work (in general) through this example, stay with me for the rest of this note. Initially I was thinking, a progress bar should be easy: just make...

The tags XML flow control tags are exactly the same as their Core flow control equivalents, except that the test condition with a boolean EL expression is replaced by the select condition with an XPath expression. In the case of the forEach tag, the items attribute is replaced with the select attribute. In a test condition, the XPath expression is evaluated to a boolean value by the rules of the XPath boolean() function, which converts its argument to a boolean as follows: a number is true if and only if it is neither positive or negative zero nor NaN. a node-set is true if and only if it is non-empty. a string is true if and only if its length is non-zero. an object of...

The tags <x:parse> Parses an XML document. The document to be parsed can be specified by the doc attribute or enclosed as the body of the tag. The parsed document is exposed as the var attribute or the varDom attribute. When exposed as var , the type of the exposed object is implementation dependent; when exposed as varDom , the type of the exposed object is org.w3c.dom.Document . Objects exposed by var and varDom can both be used to set the context of an XPath expression. Syntax: <x:parse doc="XMLDocument" {var="var" [sco... or, put the XML document in the element body: <x:parse {var="var" [scope="page|request|s... Attributes: Name Dynamic?
