I am preparing to start a project using ICEfaces 1.8.1 and Facelets in Netbeans 6.5.1. I'd like to share various issues I have encountered during project creation.
- The list of libraries automatically added to the project differ depending on the frameworks I select during the project creation. If I create the project with Visual ICEfaces+Icefaces+JSF+Visual JSF, I end up with much more libraries in the project than if I select Visual ICEfaces only. The interesting thing is, adding the Visual ICEfaces framework automatically adds other frameworks, but not all libraries associated with them. Why?
- I had no auto-completion for ice tags in xhtml files until I manually added the "ICEfaces Run-Time 1.8.1" library to the project. Shouldn't this lib be included automatically? Eventually, I have found the library is automatically added when creating a project with ICEfaces only (not visual). Since I'm not going to use the visual editor, that's probably what I should have done in the first place.
- Sometimes I am unable to create a project after selecting the Visual ICEfaces framework. The "Finish" button remains grayed out. The problem goes away after restarting NB.
- When I create the project with all 4 frameworks selected, two libraries are added with an absolute path pointing to program files\...\ext\locale. They are webui-jsf_fr.jar and webui-jsf-suntheme.jar. Looks like that has nothing to do with icefaces.
