6. JSFC Attribute Feature
Code View Support
> JSFC Attribute Feature
One of the benefits of Facelets is the ability to decorate standard HTML tags with special
attributes to inform the Facelets view handler that certain tags should be handled as
server-side components. For instance, by applying the JSFC attribute to the standard HTML
input tag, Facelets will transform this tag into the JSF HtmlInputText tag at request
This enables HTML tags to be bound to managed bean properties and methods using JSF-EL
expressions in the same way that the actual JSF tags are used. The benefit of this approach is
a shorter learning curve for page designers who are unfamiliar with JSF tags.
To extend this support even further, Facelets Tools also includes JSF attribute inspectors
for standard HTML tags that are categorized according to common sense usage for Facelets,
complete with enumerated values, file browsing, CSS drop-down menus, and more. Syntaxauto-complete is also available for the
Facelets JSFC feature.
Simply click on a Facelets UI tag or attribute in Dreamweaver's Code View and press
SHIFT+F1 and the Reference Panel will open to the appropriate page.
