Hi,

currently I am developing a bigger project using JSF. Of course, I chose Eclipse as development environment. As my development speed with JSF became really slow, I decided to compare the JSF functionality with the functionality provided by netbeans and IntelliJ IDEA. Even though, Eclipse and the JSF tools are really great, there are some things I really miss in Eclipse now:

1. For example if I write the JSF element:

<h:sdfkjsldfkj> that does not exist, the editor does not highlight this element as wrong. Why not? Auto Completion works and there is no element with this name listed.

2. When I am developing new components such as:

<ui:component>
<h:outputText value="#{xy}"/>
</ui:component>

Eclipse should realize that xy does not exist as it is only a local variable that has to be parameterized. But first, Eclipse should notify me about that circumstance.

3. Because then, when using this ui:component as template, there should be a help when setting the params:

<ui:decorate template="....">
<ui:param name="xy" value="hurray"/>


4. When clicking on variables the according JSF Managed Bean should be opened.

So, as I know that eclipse is really powerful, maybe there are some settings I have overseen. Is it possible at least to validate number 1?

Are there any plans in more JSF toolings?

Regards,

Tex

Or btw: Do you know a commercial JSF plug-in for Eclipse that provides these features? I checked out JBoss Tools and Rational Software Architect and all these are not better Smile

Eclipse does have a web tools platform and JSF subforum.

(Oops, my bad. I thought I was in Eclipse newcomers. I'll try to pay
closer attention in future.)

In the meanwhile I have installed the JBoss Tools. As I use JSF with CDI, these tools provide some nice features. Nevertheless, if I type:

<h:sdfsldkf> it is not highlighted as wrong.

Tex
