I did a little digging, but it seems there has been very little activity on Facelets support. If I take a look at this list:|
Then most of the tickets have last been commented on in 2008 and are still open. For instance "Support for Facelets" (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=198723) has not been updated since 2008. Same for "Method expression hyperlinking does not work in XHTML" (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=252241), which seems to me a fundamental thing for an editor to support, is still open and has been since 2008 again.
Nevertheless, there does seem to be activity related to Facelets, as witnessed by this bug: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=309488
If I read a little between the lines, it seems I must copy a JSF 2.0 implementation to my WEB-INF/lib?
My project is a JSF 1.2 project, with the standalone Facelets jars in WEB-INF/lib. Isn't such a project supported maybe? I would at least have thought that the editor would give me some errors somewhere, but instead my .xhtml page was simply displayed as xml, without any errors or validation markers.
I also tried creating a new project and choose JSF 2.0 (although I did not add the implementation libs to my project). Again there were no errors or warnings and my test .xhtml page was opened and displayed as if it was just a normal xml file.
