Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-348) JSF Tags Not Displayed in Eclipse Web Page Editor

JSF Tags Not Displayed in Eclipse Web Page Editor

                 Key: GERONIMODEVTOOLS-348
             Project: Geronimo-Devtools
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: eclipse-plugin
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
         Environment: Windows XP SP2, Eclipse Europa Winter Maintenance Release, Geronimo
2.1.1, GEP 2.1.0
            Reporter: Cedric Hurst
            Assignee: Tim McConnell

Eclipse WTP tooling provides a drag-and-drop palette for various taglibs in its Web Page Editor.
 When the JSF Project Facet is attached to a Dynamic Web Project, "JSF Core" and "JSF HTML"
taglibs should be added to the palette (see screenshot).  However, this is not the case when
using Geronimo/GEP.

Steps to Reproduce
1. Create a new Dynamic Web Project using Geronimo 2.1 as the Targeted Runtime, click "Next"
2. Add the JavaServer Faces 1.2 Facet to the Project, click "Next"
3. Accept the default web module settings, click "Next"
4. In the JSF Capabilities page, select the "Server Supplied JSF Implementation" option and
click "Finish"
5. Create a new JSP page in the "WebContent" directory
6. Right click on the new JSP page and open it with the "Web Page Editor"
7. Expand the "Palette" in the WYSIWYG pane

Expected Behavior
JSF Core and JSF HTML taglibs should be visible in the palette (as per attached screenshot)

Actual Behavior
JSF Core and JSF HTML taglibs are not displayed

Possible Explanation
It seems that the taglibs are not loading properly somewhere within WTP.  Curiously enough,
the following scenario works:

1. Copy the "myfaces-api" and "myfaces-impl" jar files from the repository into some other
directory on the file system.
2. Explicitly define a JSF library in the Window -> Preferences -> Web and XML ->
JavaServerFaces Tools -> Libraries page
3. Add the copied JAR files to this new library definition and check the "Is JSF Implementation"
4. Repeat steps 1-7 described above, but specify this new JSF library instead of the "Server
Supplied JSF Implementation" in step 4.

Directly linking to the files "myfaces-api" and "myfaces-impl" files in the repository when
explicitly defining the JSF implementation doesn't work either.  The JSF tags only display
when the files sit outside the repository.  So there must be something in the Geronimo runtime
definition that is preventing these files from being referenced.
