Converting ICEfaces 1.8 Components to ICEfaces 3 Tutorial

Fully converting a component that was designed to work with ICEfaces 1.8 on JSF 1.1 or JSF 1.2 to working with ICEfaces 3 on JSF 2 is an extensive topic. For the most part, old components work as is in the new environment, and so all that is necessary are a few configuration changes. The complexity comes in adding new JSF 2 functionality to old components. In many cases, to receive the full benefits of JSF 2, it might prove simpler to port your components to the [Advanced Components Environment].

For the minimal update route, you need only change your faces-config.xml file and Facelets Taglib.xml file to use the new JSF 2 schemas:

<faces-config
    xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-facesconfig_2_0.xsd"
    version="2.0"
    metadata-complete="false">
...
</<faces-config>

and

<facelet-taglib
    xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-facelettaglibrary_2_0.xsd"
    version="2.0">
...
</facelet-taglib>
