currently I am developing a bigger project using JSF. Of course, I chose Eclipse as development environment. As my development speed with JSF became really slow, I decided to compare the JSF functionality with the functionality provided by netbeans and IntelliJ IDEA. Even though, Eclipse and the JSF tools are really great, there are some things I really miss in Eclipse now:
1. For example if I write the JSF element:
<h:sdfkjsldfkj> that does not exist, the editor does not highlight this element as wrong. Why not? Auto Completion works and there is no element with this name listed.
2. When I am developing new components such as:
Eclipse should realize that xy does not exist as it is only a local variable that has to be parameterized. But first, Eclipse should notify me about that circumstance.
3. Because then, when using this ui:component as template, there should be a help when setting the params:
<ui:param name="xy" value="hurray"/>
4. When clicking on variables the according JSF Managed Bean should be opened.
So, as I know that eclipse is really powerful, maybe there are some settings I have overseen. Is it possible at least to validate number 1?
Are there any plans in more JSF toolings?
