Faces Config Editor only showing Source tab [message #476050] Fri, 31 October 2008 15:10 Go to next message

I'm not sure what I managed to do to my Eclipse configuration, and/or
project, but the Faces Config Editor is no longer showing the various tabs
for managed beans, navigation, ... When I open my faces-config.xml file,
the Faces Config Editor overview screen flashes briefly, then the file
opens with only a source tab visible.

Any thoughts on what might cause this?

Is the faces-config.xml either outside a JSF faceted project or outside a
sub-folder of WebContent?

If the faces-config.xml you are opening is outside the WebContent folder
hierarchy of a dynamic web project, I believe we disable the graphical
tabs.

The file is located at WebContent/WEB-INF/faces-config.xml. However, the
project in question began as a simple Java project. It was subsequently
upgraded to a Dynamic Web Project manually.

It turns out that I never had the graphical tabs enabled for this specific
project, but they are visible for projects I created using the Ganymede
new project wizards, so I started looking at the .classpath and .project
files.

I opened the project properties and added the JavaServer Faces facet, and
now the graphical tabs are visible. Looking at what got changed, I see
the new entries shown below.
