Occasionally, users have the need to override the version of JSF included in the application server by bundling a different version of JSF with their application. If you are trying to use CDI in such a scenario, you might have noticed it does not work. Is there a way out?
Yes, there is, by including a small JAR and some configuration in your web application you can make this scenario work.
To make it possible to debug the view tree the JSF runtime has a debug component (ui:debug) that you can use. What is the best way to do this?
Add the ui:debug component to the bottom of your page and activate it only in Development mode. This makes it available when the application
needs to be debugged, but it does not put a burden on a Production application.
