Subject Re: Update the netui-jsf sample build files to support newer MyFaces 1.1.X
Date Wed, 24 Jan 2007 16:03:43 GMT
Hey Eddie,

Sounds good. No, at this time I do not see any code changes. Hopefully
there wouldn't be any as I think the code is good at integrating with
the JSF spec API and not the implementation. I'll make sure the jsfWeb
test app runs fine first though. Thanks for the input.
