== Problems == section added

  Currently it is not possible just to add !MyFaces to your portlet and it works.  There are
several circumstances which make it necessary to change sources to get it run. There is also
the JIRA entry [ MYFACES-434] which addresses
some of the issues.
+ Shinsuke SUGAYA has done there already a lot work and provides at 
+ a !MyFaces-bridge (in Japanese).
+ '''''Any help is welcome to improve the portal support of !MyFaces!'''''
+ == Problems ==
+ There are some issues, which cause the problems of using !MyFaces together with portals.
The !MyFaces-Team is working on these issues to reduce any limitation.
+  * ''!HeaderResource:'' !MyFaces uses also external resources like CSS and !JavaScripts
+    These files are added by the framework only once to the head part of the generated HTML
+    Running as portlet, there is no access to this head as the portlet do not know about
its container.
+    For this, special ''AddResource'' implementations are required for specific portal servers.
+  * ''Generated IDs'': !MyFaces uses internal also IDs to identify the controls, but some
+    servers rename these IDs (prefixes them for example) which could cause problems with
+    !JavaScript code.
+  * ''Caching'': Portal servers provide ofthen caching of the portlets. This could work different

+    than the expected caching provided by a commen web contaienr like Tomcat.
