Are there any adapter/helper classes or frameworks for writing components/renderers?
posted 10 years ago
I have gone through the tutorials of writing a custom component as well as writing a Renderer. The process of creating custom components and renderers although powerful also appears to be a tedious one for me.
Can anybody recommend any:
1. Eclipse Plugins that make the process of creating a custom JSF component from scratch easier?
2. Adapter or helper classes for renderers and components that do a lot of the plumbing for you so that you don't have to do a whole lot of encode decode as well as responseWriter.startElement("input"), etc. Is there some framework, base Renderer classes that can be extended to achieve this. Also if you're trying to create a component that is a hybrid of several other ones as well as a renderer that is a hybrid, is there an easier way to do this than having to write all this plumbing code?
