Does anyone know if there is a "cooked" SVG renderkit?

Thanks,
Janis

I'm not sure how one would work, since JSF is mostly about forms and SVG is mostly about graphics. If you're intending to output SVG, you should probably bypass JSF for that request and just output the SVG from a servlet.

Of course, you still have to deal with the fact that Internet Explorer historically isn't very friendly to SVG, but that's another matter.

Thanks Tim for a comment. Frankly speaking, I am not sure myself how it's going to work. I am just looking around and searching for the available options.

I just know that I need more control over the graphics on a web page and trying to figure out what can I do about it.

You are probably right, mixing both JSF and SVG wouldn't be such a good idea. This could be a reason why there is no SVG render kit available.

I should, probably, look at this situation a little bit differently, by considering SVG context as a resource, which I can request whenever I need it.

Thanks again, you have triggered some ideas ;)

Janis

P.S.: With regards to the IE, I was thinking to try svgweb. Otherwise, I will, probably, look more seriously at Flex.
