Re: [mojarra-dev] [faces-dev] Faces Milestone/RC API artifact?


The clean API has indeed appeared to be too much work. So I agree, let's leave that for EE 10. 

Instead for Jakarta EE 9 let's just do the "simple" one. For a correct API the following I'd then propose to do the following steps:

* Do a "blunt" rename in the Mojarra project for the package
* Do a search for the javax.* constant in strings and rename
* Build Mojarra, pray that it at least compiles
* When it compiles, stage it (it may not be a functional binary, i.e. passing tests, but that's okay at this point)
* Hop over to the API project, use the staged binary to extract the API from it.

Kind regards,

Per our earlier discussion, it's looks like it's too much work at this point to cleanly divide the Faces API from Mojarra.  We'll have to leave that Issuefor another day.  I'm okay with that.

But, now my next question is when can we get a Mojarra Milestone/RC API so that we can properly build the Faces Milestone/RC API?  Faces is the last remaining piece in order to produce a Milestone/RC for the overall Jakarta EE Platform and Web Profile.
