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...

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.

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...
