Meeting notes from a conference call with the IBM team on the JSF Proposal.

Date: June 24th, 05
Attendees:
From Oracle: Raghu Srinivasan, Brian Fry, Stephen Tom and Ian Trimble
From IBM: Arthur Ryman, George DeCandio and team
Following are the comments on the proposal:

1) Add JSF Project nature to any Web Module
Instead of Nature, it should read Feature. This concept will be implemented
in WTP 1.0.

2) Graphical Editor for JSF page
This is a big ticket item. The proposal should be changed in one of the
following ways:
a) Drop it. This is a complex undertaking and may not be realistic. Also,
vendors use this feature as a value-add and may not be inclined to
participate in the project since it conflicts with their business interest.
b) Keep this feature for completeness, but move it to a future release. This
is not the first thing we will build.

3) Graphical Editor for faces-config.xml
a) This is more reasonable and a valid feature.
b) Include form-based editor . Investigate Lepido technology.

3) Wizard
The proposal should identify this as an extension point and also commit to
delivering related API's These can be used to generate the first cut of a
JSF page that can then be customized. Improves developer productivity.
Use cases:
a) WebServices project should be able to generate a default client in JSF.
Currently it generates in JSP.
b) Model Driven Development project: Generate JSF for a given model.
c) Generate a JSF page for a given backing bean.

4) Application Configuration - faces-config.xml
The proposal should say that there will be a Java model and associated API's
to manipulate this programmatically.

5)Tentative Schedule is to coincide with release of WTP 1.5

6) Solicit support from other vendors at JavaOne.


Raghu Srinivasan,
Project Lead - JSF
