Hi,

I am pretty new to JSF and I have a requirement in my project where I am using ibm jsf implementation using RAD 7.0
I need a collapsible panel functionality. I tried integrating tomahawk with it but couldnt do not. seems like tomahawk doesnt support ibm implementation of JSF.

Can you please guide me with how can i go about creating a custom JSF component Panel with expand/collapse functionality?

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Seema!

I'm surprised if Tomhawk has problems with WebSphere, but WebSphere v7 should be capable of working with RichFaces, and RichFaces also supports collapsible panels.

we are using websphere 6.1. We cannot move to 7

I might have to consider creating a custom tag only. Can you provide me with sample code to do so?

Sorry. I mixed up RAD release and WAS release numbers.

I think you can run a RichFaces on WAS 6.1 if you have the EJB3 service pack installed.

As far as cooking up a custom tag, that would cost you. It's a non-trivial effort, especially if you're confined to JSF version 1.

I don't know, but you'd be reaching pretty far back in time for a compatible release. The EJB service update, however, worked pretty well for me on WAS Linux. Never could get it working on iSeries, though.

Eventually WAS 6 is going to go End-of-Life. Not soon enough, however. In the mean time most of the Java technology it supported HAS passed End-of-Life, which means that unless you can get IBM to help you, no one else is likely to.
