Design View Support

Facelets Tools adds comprehensive support to Dreamweaver for Facelets UI design. Now you can create complex composite views and preview your pages instantly in Dreamweaver's Design View.

Facelets Tools Design View in Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver with Facelets Tools rendering a Facelets XHTML page containing JSF HTML and Facelets UI tags in Design View.

Facelets Tools also includes visual tags for Facelets to render a consistent visualization of your JSF pages at design time. You can also redesign your pages quickly by wrapping content with the Facelets UI Remove tag to make it invisible in Design View.

Additionally, Facelets Tools extends Dreamweaver's Live Data mode to enable you to preview live, data-driven JSF pages faster than ever.

Templating Tip:

You can use Facelets Tools to create composite headers and footers for your pages and include them in a Dreamweaver template for total control of your presentation layer.

When you combine Facelets Tools with JSFToolbox for Dreamweaver, you can design Facelets pages with visual JSF tags, property inspectors and tag chooser dialogs to simplify your workflow and enhance your productivity.

Facelets Tools Community Edition - Design View

Facelets Tools Community Edition is available free of charge and supports the visualization of all JSF Core, JSF HTML, and Facelets UI tags when combined with JSFToolbox for Dreamweaver, version 1.1 or later.

Facelets Tools Professional - Design View

Facelets Tools Professional extends this support by adding property inspectors for all Facelets UI tags, JSF data-bound tag chooser dialogs, a JSF-EL parser and inspector complete with design view highlighting and a powerful XML formatter specifically designed for Facelets.
