Source Artefacts and Generated Outputs
Three main processes are involved with ACE, for generating all outputs, to result in a built component, given the above sources.
- Sprite image generation. CSS resources may be annotated, so that images in them will be collected together into sprite images, which allow for a reduced number of HTTP GET requests, which reduces page load time.
- CSS image resource re-pathing. The standard web.xml JSF servlet-mapping will not work with CSS linked image resources. To avoid adding additional servlet-mapping entries, the CSS will be modified to include EL resource paths to the images.
