Customizing the Palette of the Web Page editor [message #206787] Tue, 15 January 2008 06:38 Go to next message

Hi,

I use Eclipse Europa with the latest WTP.
Version: 3.3.1.1
Build id: M20071023-1652

I am learning JSF Facelets and creating my pages in the visual WebPage
editor.

The palette attached to the editor gives me some standard JSF controls I
can drop into my page. I have my own set of custom JSF components that I
want to add to the palette and found an article explaining the same -
http://www.eclipse-blog.org/eclipse-ide/customize-the-palett e-of-visual-editor.html.

But in my eclipse installation I cannot find the plugin it refers to
plugins\org.eclipse.ve.swt_1.1.0.1

What could I be missing?

The org.eclipse.ve.swt plugin is part of the Visual Editor (
http://www.eclipse.org/vep ). It is intended for creating SWT and Swing
applications. The Web Page Editor is part of the webtools project (
http://www.eclipse.org/webtools ).
Add jar files that contain your components to Web App Libraries
(WebContent/WEB-INF/lib) and they will automatically show up in the palette.

As has been pointed out, the link you've found won't help you for doing
Facelets. For JSF component libraries to show up in your palette, they
must be in your project classpath. As mentioned, putting in your lib
directory is one way. A better option is to add them using a JSF
library. To learn how to do this check out
http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/jsf/docs/tutorial/JSFTools_1 _0_tutorial.html
