Hi Ranchers,

I have a following doubt… let me know if you have any idea

Problem description:
I have following four xhtmls of simillar format.
1. page1ExcelExport.xhtml
2. page2ExcelExport.xhtml
3. page3ExcelExport.xhtml
4. page4ExcelExport.xhtml

Only some variables change in each page.

Requirement:
I want to define a template xhtml and substitute required values.
I know in JSF 2.0 we have this Composite component model. But in JSF 1.2 how can we do with minimum supporting model?


page1ExcelExport.xhtml listed below:

I think you can use facelet insert tag (ui:insert). You can create multiple insert tag in your template page and can use them by define tag of facelet(ui:define). for example

in your template page-

<ui:insert name="title"></ui:insert>

and after including this template in your more specific page you can define it-
<ui: define name="tilte"> ABC </ui:define>

I hope it works for you

Hello,

How can I use it to fill the attribute value? could you give me an example snippet?

instead of accessing the tempalte xhtml ...defined a POJO which exposes necessary attributes for template.

1. On click of excel export ...call action method if new POJO
2. based on request params fill in all properties
3. redirect to xhtml template
