Guest post: How to create a newsletter template your marketing team will love

Posted by rah003 on October 21, 2014 at 2:14 AM PDT

Today, I'd like to introduce you to a colleague of mine: Tomas. Tomas works with Magnolia's marketing team, where he focuses on developing our corporate website, as well as a number of communications tools like newsletters. He's recently taken a liking to blogging, so I'd like to leave him this stage today, as he has some pretty cool pieces of knowledge he'd like to share.

JavaOne 2014 Day Three Notes

Posted by edburns on October 17, 2014 at 5:08 AM PDT

Day three was definitely the high point of the conference for me. As anyone who has spoken at tech conferences knows, the point in time when all of one's sessions have been given is the turning point between tempered enjoyment and pure enjoyment of the conference. I was blessed with the scheduling this year; I was all done after Wednesday.

A quick run down on the issues fixed since last time

#1325 - Let CDI handle #{applicationScope}
#1311 - Let CDI handle #{facesContext} EL resolving
#1323 - Support @Inject for the applicationMap
#1322 - Simplify #{externalContext} to use ExternalContextProducer
#1309 - Support @Inject for ExternalContext
#527 - Support @Inject for FacesContext

JSF 2.3 Injecting the application map

Posted by mriem on October 15, 2014 at 12:39 PM PDT

Another CDI alignment issue done

In code

@ApplicationMap
@Inject
Map applicationMap;

In words you can now inject the application map for use in your CDI managed bean.

Enjoy!

JSF 2.3 @Inject ExternalContext

Posted by mriem on October 13, 2014 at 10:22 PM PDT

Starting from the new 2.3 SNAPSHOT builds you can now do

@Inject ExternalContext externalContext;

Note you will need to make sure you use the latest 2.3 SNAPSHOT build and that you include a faces-config.xml that states version 2.3.

Enjoy!
