Starting from the new 2.3 SNAPSHOT builds you can now do
@Inject FacesContext facesContext;
Note you will need to make sure you use the latest 2.3 SNAPSHOT build available from https://maven.java.net/content/repositories/snapshots/org/glassfish/java... and that you include a faces-config.xml that states version 2.3.
A number of spec issues have been handled for the 2.3 cycle and I would like to call them out. Note today's list is going to be a bit longer than going forward. I intend to write up a small blog entry every week enumerating what happened that week, so we all can keep track of where we are at.
The issues handled are:
#1307 - validator attributes TLD doc misleading
The first batch of MVC expert group members have been determined. For the ones that were added to the EG, welcome aboard! For the ones that were declined, please be aware there are multiple ways to stay involved with the MVC specification, so please don't despair!
There are occasions when you need to know how much space a particular data structure is taking. You may have seen my recent newsletter about Java "sizeof" implementations which allow you to do that.
