No Visual JSF Editor, No AutoComplete (ICEFaces Portlet Project) [message #538097] Fri, 04 June 2010 23:41 Go to next message

I have Eclipse 3.5 with WTP and have installed these additional plugins:

- Portlet Tools
- ICEFaces
- Java EE IDE (part of WTP?)

I am working on a portlet that uses ICEFaces. I have set my project up to use these facets:

- Java v6.0
- Dynamic Web Module v2.5
- Portlet Module (JSR) v2.0
- JavaServer Faces v.12.
- ICEFaces v1.8

What else do I have to do make available/open the Visual JSF editor? I can't find anything under Views or Perspectives.

I can open my web files withthe "Web Page Editor". Is this the same as the Visual JSF editor? It does have visual component but I was under the impression the JSF editor had drag/drop capabilities.

However, even in this view, I do not get any autocomplete functionality when I type in a tag (as one gets in NetBeans and IntelliJ).

For example, this is my file view.xhtml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<f:view xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" 
        xmlns:ice="http://www.icesoft.com/icefaces/component"
        xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets">
    <ice:portlet>
        <ice:form>
            <ice:outputStyle href="/xmlhttp/css/xp/xp-portlet.css" />
            <ice:outputStyle href="/css/style.css" />
            <div id="header">
                <h1><ice:outputText value="View Page"/></h1>
                <p>This is the view page</p>
            </div>
        </ice:form>
    </ice:portlet>
</f:view>


If I type in "<ice:", I would expect an autocomplete list of ICEFaces component names to choose from to be displayed. Should I not expect this or is there some further configuration that I need to do? Does it have anything to do with my files being .xhtml and not .jsp?

Thanks in advance!

Apparently I had all but one piece set up for the visual editor. I needed to open the Palette view and the components are now available for drag and drop.

However, it would be really nice to have the auto-complete on the tags. Does anyone know if this is possible in Eclipse?

Thanks again!

You may have figured this out, but you'll also need the Properties view
as well. If you wonder why, please see

Best of luck,
