Does the eclipse Plugin work with myfaces? How about the tomahawk
extensions?

I'm bran new to JSF and trying to sort out what works with what.

Thanks

Frank,

It depends on what you mean by "works with", but yes you should be able to
develop an application using MyFaces or Tomahawk components. Please see
the tutorial provided in the Getting Started section of the JSF Tooling
User Guide for the basics of the JSF tooling.

The most important step for you will be to setup one or more JSF Libraries
that contain the jars that you wish to use. After that you should be
able to design JSP pages using the Apache components and execute on a
server.

What you will be missing is all of the source editing assistance that is
provided with this release. Extension points have been created allowing
additional meta-data to be provided with a tag library so that the tooling
can provide value-added services such as validation and content assistance
for the attribute values of those tag libraries. The standard JSF Core
and HTML tag libraries are the only ones supported by this tooling.

Another tutorial in the JSF Tooling Developers Guide was developed to to
guide component developers on how to create these extensions for their
components. We would love it for someone out there to develop a plugin
supporting the Apache components. It would be of great use to the JSF
user community and would give us feedback on our provisional APIs for this
preview release.
