I know everyone has been waiting breathlessly.   I just installed an updated version of the "GourmetJ Recipe Manager" to my demo server. It can now search, display, edit and update recipes with virtually all of the core recipe features.


Since the original, I went from vanilla JSF to Apache MyFaces Tobago. It's a well-featured system, but I've been disappointed to discover that Tobago is JSF more in name than in fact. They do screwball things with control flow and don't play at all well with non-Tobago tags. Virtually every JSF tag - including the core ones - are replaced with a uniquely Tobago equivalent. They make styling using separate tags because their own tags don't support the style or styleClass attributes. But it does most of what I need and the appearance is pretty decent.

I did seriously reconsider moving to a more mainline JSF extension tag library, but support for the old standbys is shaky these days and at least Tobago is in active maintenance.

Source code is available at https://gogs.mousetech.com/mtsinc7/GourmetJ for your amusement and edification.

The app runs on a standard Tomcat9 server once you add a JDBC driver and 2 Spring Data support jars to its lib directory.
