Subject Re: JSF and non-struts controllerServlets
Date Thu, 02 Dec 2004 20:59:32 GMT

I think that you have to choose between a JSF controller and a
controller in the sense you are discussing it.  If I am not mistaken,
the use of Struts together with JSF, for example, requires that when a
request is presented to the web application it choose at the outset
between Struts and JSF.  As a consequence, if this is right, what you
have in mind won't really work.  I think that you cannot use the JSF
stuff without using the JSF page based controller.  (This is not to
say that you cannot use traditional model 2 controllers in an
environment where JSF is used.  This is just to say that you have to
choose JSF or model 2 when the request arrives and you cannot go to
the model 2 controller then to JSF or vice versa, if I understand.) 
If that is wrong, someone should correct this misconception.

feel the JSP will paint well. But when a button is clicked, the above mentioned Model-2 based
ControllerServlet will pick up the HTTP-PUT/request. From there on, its the old world again,
until its time to set the HTTPRequest and HTTPSession for painting the next JSP (I want this
to use JSF too).
