Hi,

With the ICEfaces plugin for BEA Workshop for JSF, when I create a new JSP page I get the option to create a "New ICEfaces File", which produces a *.jsp file with a taglib declaration for the ICEfaces tag library.

However, the tutorial, and other things I've read, states that ICEfaces works with XML format *.jspx JSP documents.

Is this a bug in the plugin, or can I use JSP pages instead?

Hi Mark,

Yes, you can use *.jsp style JSF pages. ICEfaces will function just fine with those. Our tutorials and samples are geared to using *.jspx files, perhaps because it's easier to transition to xhtml-based Facelets from those. Many tools, such as the BEA plugin, function better with *.jsp files. For instance, tag autocompletion doesn't work when using xhtml. So, it's more a matter of bending to meet the tool's needs.

Thanks,
Philip
