Allow registering stylesheets on a particular skin via an xml config file
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: ADFFACES-292
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ADFFACES-292
             Project: MyFaces ADF-Faces
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Jeanne Waldman


Background:
> Let's say a custom component developer created some new components. He
> wants those components  to "fit in" with the
> 'simple' skin. He also wants them to "fit in" with the 'minimal' skin
> or any other public skin out there.  He doesn't have access to the files
> where we
> have this information -- our base-desktop.xss, simple-desktop.xss,
> simple-pda.xss, etc.
>
> With Trinidad's Skin API, he can call the
> skin.registerStyleSheet
> ("styles/myCustomComponentsSimpleDesktop.css")
> method on the skin instance. Aside: I'm not sure *when/where* the custom
> component developer would do this, because it would need to be after we've
> registered our base skins and any skin extensions, so presumably it
> would need to be after the TrinidadFilter.
>
> It would be much nicer for the custom component developer if all he has
> to do is create an .xml file and stick it in the META-INF
> of his jar file. Then we'll parse the xml file and register the
> stylesheets with the skins for him. 


Conclusion:
On the list, we decided to add a <skin-addition> element to the trinidad-skins.xml file.


 We definitely want to allow these skin-additions to be in a .jar file, therefore we'll need
trinidad-skins.xml to be able to be in a jar file.
