Hi there,
I need to code a "Forgot password" backedbean in JSF2 that sends the password reminder mail. I used to use Freemarker templates for this in my previous Struts2 webapps and want to keep them. I need to access these templates, which I guess /resources/freemarker/ is a good place for them but ┬┐how can I read them from a [Managed] Backed Bean? I know I can do #{resource['freemarker:myTemplate.ftl']} in a JSF2 xhtml but could now find any method in FacesContext class (or other) to do this.

Thanks for any help/directions (of course, if there is any good practice or just better method to send templated mails in JSF2 applications I'm all ears)
Ignacio

Well, actually, I use Velocity, but JSF doesn't really get involved in where Velocity finds its resources. That's all determined by how I configure and invoke Velocity.
