== Portlet Bridge for JavaServer Faces FAQ ==

=== Why is there more than one bridge? ===
[#BridgeVersion permlink]

The Portlet Bridge for JavaServer Faces is a technology that sits between a portlet container
and the JSF runtime enabling JSF applications to be exposed and run as portlets.  Because
differing versions of the portlet container and JSF exist, a distinct bridge implementation
is provided for each combination of the two systems versions.  This ensures a best possible
fit for each possible pair.  Currently, this project is providing implementations for the
two portlet versions (1.0 and 2.0) within the JSF 1.2 environment.  In the future work will
appear to support portlet 2.0 within JSF 2.0.

The MyFaces Portlet 1.0 Bridge for JavaServer Faces 1.2 is the reference implementation for
JSR-301.  The JSR-301 specification is currently in "Proposed Final Draft" form.

The MyFaces Portlet 2.0 Bridge for JavaServer Faces 1.2 is the reference implementation for
JSR-329.  The JSR-329 specification is currently in "Early Public Draft" form.

=== Why is there more than one JSR? ===
[#BridgeSpec permlink]

Though it was originally hoped to produce both the Portlet 1.0 and Portlet 2.0 versions of
the bridge within a single JSR (JSR-301) they were eventually split into two distinct JSRs
to better fit within the JCP infrastructure.

=== Do I have to run the MyFaces Portlet Bridge with MyFaces (core) ===

No.  The bridges in this project are designed to work with any Faces 1.2 implementation. 
Its been regularly used with various versions of Mojarra 1.2 (Faces RI) as well as MyFaces
