Hi. I have a Faces application and I want to add RSS feeds to it. How to generate syndication feeds in Faces application (not in terms of how to generate the feed, but in terms of how to serve feeds at Faces code level). Thanks.
While I think I MAY have seen something on some sort of JSF RSS feed control, RSS is just an XML spec, and doesn't need anything as elaborate as JSF to be renderable - a simple servlet or XML JSP would suffice.
Remember, each and every bit of output in a JSF needn't be produced by JSF. Use JSF where it makes sense and use other technologies as appropriate.
It's perfectly admirable to create a site with JSF-managed application objects that are serialized as RSS feed items via a JSPX, for example.
Some people, when well-known sources tell them that fire will burn them, don't put their hands in the fire.
Some people, being skeptical, will put their hands in the fire, get burned, and learn not to put their hands in the fire.
And some people, believing that they know better than well-known sources, will claim it's a lie, put their hands in the fire, and continue to scream it's a lie even as their hands burn down to charred stumps.
