Hi,

As a follow-up to my previous post, can anyone tell me the extent of ICEfaces tool integration in BEA Workshop for JSF?

I am under the impression that the plugin adds the the aforementioned option to create a new ICEfaces ready JSP page, and also adds a context menu to add ICEfaces support to an existing web application.

This context menu then adds the required jar files to WEB-INF/lib, adds icefaces_component.tld to WEB-INF, and mucks about with the web.xml file to add the required servlets and config parameters, and changes STATE_SAVING_METHOD to "server".

As far as I can tell, there is no special help to visually edit JSP pages, or any other features. Am I correct?

I'm asking as I am evaluating the ICEfaces tool integration, alongside the ICEfaces framework.

Hi Mark,

Yes, you're correct. The extent of all of our Eclipse-based Tool integration plugins, such as the BEA Workshop plugin, are restricted to project library and configuration aid. They do not offer any visual editing. For that you should check out our Sun Java Studio Creator plugin, which provides visual page editing, a component pallette, component-api integration with dataproviders, and lots more.

Thanks,
Philip
