still plugging along on getting Facelets fully specified so a
clean-room implementation can be done of it. Today I've been expanding
the charter of a new class,
PageDeclarationLanguage, which is vended from the
is the starting point for all things specific to the way the view is
described. The idea is that even within the concept of a single
ViewHandler, it's possible to have different ways to declare a view.
We'll be using a
PageDeclarationLanguageFactory and require
that a compliant implementation provide PDL impls for JSP and for
Facelets (as defined in JSF 2.0). The most recent version of this class
is from Early Draft Review 2, at <https://javaserverfaces-spec-public.dev.java.net/nonav/snapshots/edr2/javadocs/javax/faces/webapp/pdl/PageDeclarationLanguage.html>
I've made a bunch of changes to that class just today, but those will be in a later version of the specification.
other news, Roger has been doing great work on declarative Ajax and
we'll have an ajaxification story present in JSF 2.0 similar to the
<a4j:support /> tag in RichFaces.
