Subject Re: I'm going to break "automatic" tomcat jsf support for a couple of days
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2007 16:44:57 GMT
David,  I'm not sure where things are at with the dependency injection
patch you were working on for tomcat but would it be OK if I reenabled
the MyFaces context listener in the tomcat assembly?  I'm hoping this
will allow us to proceed with testing JSF in both assemblies.

Best wishes,
