Hi All,

I have a problem using custom tag with facelets .

My web.xml is :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app version="2.5" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd">

faces-config.xml

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<faces-config version="1.2"

</component>

<application>
<view-handler>
com.sun.facelets.FaceletViewHandler
</view-handler>
</application>

</faces-config>

ticker.tld :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<taglib xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

<tag>
<name>ticker</name>
<tag-class>ticker.TickerTag</tag-class>
<body-content>JSP</body-content>
</tag>
</taglib>

ticker.xhtml :

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

xmlns:d="http://jsftutorials.com/"
xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core">
<body>
<ui:composition template="/template.xhtml">
<ui:define name="body">
<f:view>
<d:ticker>
Hello JSF Component
</d:ticker>
</f:view>
</ui:define>
</ui:composition>
</body>
</html>

ticker.taglib.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE facelet-taglib PUBLIC
"-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Facelet Taglib 1.0//EN"
"facelet-taglib_1_0.dtd">
<facelet-taglib>
<namespace>http://jsftutorials.com/</namespace>;
<tag>
<tag-name>ticker</tag-name>
<handler-class>ticker.TickerTag</handler-class>
<component>
<component-type>ticker</component-type>
</component>
</tag>
</facelet-taglib>

When the ticker.xhtml page is rendered on browser , the source code is seen like this:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd" >
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>Facelets - Template Example</title>
<link href="./css/default.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
</head>

<body>
<h1>Default Title
</h1>
<p>
<d:ticker>
Hello JSF Component
</d:ticker>
</p>
</body>

</html>

It means that facelets is not recognizing the ticker tag . What is the problem ?

You may need to include faces-config.xml as well in facelets.LIBRARIES parameter.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
