Feedback on Milestone 1 Features
  • John Rohrlich - When will the code be available?
  • Raghu Srinivasan - The date for the first code drop is expected to be around mid-November. The date will be affected by the nature of the Sybase contribution.
  • [JH] - Why do we need to specify the Tag Libraries when registering an implementation?
  • Ian Trimble - Will look into it and refine the doc.
  • [JH] - Wizard should not be required to create a JSF page. Selecting the New JSF menu should create a JSF page with default.
  • [RS] - Wizard similar to creating a new JSP page. Will keep the UI experience consistent.
  • Jean Choi - The Wizard will provide option to choose a JSF template
  • [JH] - Will review the New JSP Wizard user experience and will post additional comments in the newsgroup.
  • [JH]- Why do we a new API to add a JSF Facet to a web application? Can't we use existing API?
  • [RS] - New API will allow user to specify parameters such as the supported JSF version.
