I acquired the jmaki-dojo-jsf war file and installed that into a debugging environment. When I run this, I had to use version 6 of Tomcat because I believe of the necessity of jsp version 2.1 support. Fine, this is a problem for me and my sales pitch to my manager, but ok.
When I view the running application in Firefox, it works splendidly, everything is accessible, runs perfect.
In IE, the front page works, but when I select almost any dojo widget, I get a warning box with a red "X" telling me this:
Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site http://localhost:8080/jmaki-dojo-jsf/tabbedview-jsf.faces. Operation aborted
This is not so for only the following widgets: Editable Table, Fish Eye, Table. All these work in IE.
My version of IE is current, so maybe there are some incompatibilities.
The question is, what do I do now? I can't use a library that won't work in IE, as that browser is the one primarily used by the customers of my product. I would hate, and I mean hate, to abandon jMaki. Is there any chance that I am doing something wrong, or that these issues will be fixed soon?
If it will be fixed soon, I can run this in Firefox for the duration of my development time, but I have to know that there is a solution, either on my end or that there will be a new release in the next month or so. I've already got a hard sell on forcing an upgrade to Tomcat 6.
I will check out the behavior of the Yahoo widgets, which would work just as well as the Dojo widgets for my purposes.
If we adopt jMaki, I will become more of an expert on the internals.
