I created a simple composite compenent test.xhtml:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns=""

<cc:attribute name="inValue" required="true"/>

<h:outputText value ="#{cc.attrs.inValue}"/>

I placed the file under a directory components, such that after deployment it can be found under WEB-INF/components/test.xthml.

I am trying to access it in another test2.xhtml with namespace as:

I refer the component in test2 as follows:
<util:test inValue="123456"/>

My issue is that when I run the application I get the following error:
Warning: This page calls for XML namespace declared with prefix util but no taglibrary exists for that namespace.

What am I missing?

Hi Elizabeth

When you're using composite components to eliminate configuration JSF 2.0 uses a convention and for that you must put the composite components in the resources forlder (for convention) at the same level for the WEB-INF, in your case you must put your composite component test.xhtml in a folder named util in the resources folder so

And in the page that you use the composite component you must use the namespace: and your component will be I hope this can solve your problem, If not let me know.
