Subject [jira] Commented: (MYFACES-208) faces-config.xml is only found in jar files located in WEB-INF/lib

Chris Rudd commented on MYFACES-208:
------------------------------------

You must have misunderstood the issue.

When locating faces-config.xml files the code ONLY checks the locations in the web.xml and
for each jar in the WEB-INF/lib directory, a META-INF/faces-config.xml. It does NOT look for
all META-INF/faces-config.xml files on the classpath. If it were it would pickup faces-config.xml
from ANY jar located on the classpath (this allowing components to be installed into the application
server) and in the WEB-INF/classes directory (thus allowing non-jarred web-apps).

I have verified this and checked the code. (1.0.9)

The RI from sun looks for ANY resource META-INF/faces-config.xml, and thus would find any
occurance of it in the classpath. There is no simple way to accomplish loading faces-config
files from application server installed component jars, as the current code treats each of
the locations in the web.xml as a resource location, which would require that A) the web.xml
know about all possible installed compoent jars and B) each jar have its own unique faces-config.xml
filename.

> When scaning for faces-config.xml files it currently only looks for them inside the jars
of WEB-INF/lib. 
> The RI scans the classpath via a getResources("META-INF/faces-config.xml").
> Im not sure which is correct, but it seems the RI's method is better as it allows the
config files to exist in the WEB-INF/classes dir as well as allow JSF components and such
to be installed into the container (thus shared will all apps).
