jmaki and richfaces/a4j impossible ?
I tried to see if jmaki can work together with richfaces/a4j(3.1.3) and got the following error :
31-Dec-2007 8:37:04 PM jmaki.runtime.jsf.AjaxWrapperPhaseListener getBinaryResource
SEVERE: AjaxWrapperPhaseListener Error: Could not load css/panel.xcss
Any hint on what to look at ? All I know is that richfaces basically use ajax4jsf which has its own filter that can cause all sorts of trouble, and added to that the facelets viewhandler, another source of trouble.
BTW, have been spending time for the past few days to check which JSF component framework works with which and my conclusion is that this JSF thing seems to be nothing like a spec(or it is too loose so everyone can have their imterpretation) as everyone one said we work with 'JSF x.x' yet putting them to work together is basically impossible. Even among the certain projects from within SUN.
jmaki + woodstock at least work(don't know if there are cases that fails).
May be Microsoft's 'monopoly approach is better. I thought .NET was bad until I have tried all these JSF thing :-)
BTW, among all these JSF stuff, I think jmaki is the only sensible one as all others require significant tie in in which case at least ASP.NET 2.0+ are much more polished than woodstock, richfaces, icefaces etc.
