Not sure if here or the JSF forum is the best bet, but I'm guessing there's a better chance someone here will understand the problem!
I'm looking at the adoption of Dojo within a fairly large enterprise IT shop where we have a large existing number of applications written in various Java based web frameworks, but primarily JSF.
I like the idea of using the JSF life cycle to service Ajax requests in this model, and we already have a large number of developers skilled in JSF, so it seems a no-brainer. However, I've run into the obvious problem that when I try to add the dojoType attribute to a JSF tag, the validation phase of the markup against the JSF rules throws a hissy fit - it doesn't like the dojoType attribute, so won't parse the page. Has anyone else come up against this problem? I'm wondering if it's feasible / sensible / possible to just extend/replace the existing TLD to allow it as a type (I've spent a bit of time playing around with this and, it may be my ham-fistedness, but it doesn't appear as easy as I'd imagined it would be).
Has anyone else use these approaches together? Any suggestions / pitfalls I should look out for?
