> Live Data View
One of the most interesting features of Dreamweaver is its Live Data view. This mode
allows you to view dynamic data, such as a list of products from a database, at design time.
This can be useful for rapid application
development (RAD) purposes you want to see what a finished page would look like
without leaving the design environment to preview the page in a browser.
JSFToolbox leverages Dreamweaver's Live Data view to render data-bound JSF
components in design view while you work. To enable Live Data mode, press CTRL-R on the
keyboard or click the Live Data icon to the right of the Design View icon in the Document
toolbar. Note: Live Data view is only available for sites that use a dynamic server model,
such as JSP, and that have a Testing Server configuration. Please see the Creating a New Dreamweaver Site
section for instructions on how to setup your JSF site's testing server.
The example below shows a dataTable component rendered in Live Data view.
