Subject [jira] Commented: (MYFACES-152) ResponseWriter.endDocument() abuse breaks ADF Faces
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2005 08:11:17 GMT
     [ ]
Manfred Geiler commented on MYFACES-152:

We cannot output the dummyForm javascript at once, because first the needed dummy request
parameters have to be collected. The javascript must be rendered at the end of the page.
The same applies to the autoscroll feature. What, if you have a page without MyFaces components?
Who should render the necessary script? IMHO, this can only be done by the ResponseWriter.
And since these things are all custom RenderKit features, it must be done by out special ResponseWriter!

The endDocument() method is in fact not the proper place for this kind of things, you are
right. An alternative would be to parse the written stream on the fly for the </body>
ot </html> String an insert the script output there.

> I've been shown some problems lately with MyFaces 1.0.9 and ADF Faces.
> The problems specifically trace to MyFaces's use of
> ResponseWriter.endDocument() to output Javascript.  Since ADF Faces
> runs with its own RenderKit (and therefore its own ResponseWriter),
> this Javascript is getting dropped and not written.
> I'd recommend (both as JSF EG guy and ADF Faces guy) that this MyFaces
> code be moved *out* of ResponseWriter.endDocument().  Specifically:
> - ResponseWriter.endDocument() is not guaranteed to be called before
> the close of <body> or even the close of <html>, and therefore this
> script cannot be safely output at this point.  It's quite likely that
> changes in JSF 1.2 will essentially guarantee that endDocument() is
> not called until the close of all output.
> - This is not really the intent of ResponseWriter.endDocument().  In
> HTML, it should be a no-op.  It's there for more bizarre scenarios
> like a ResponseWriter outputting a SOAP envelope around a response.
> - It's breaking ADF Faces. :)
> A significantly cleaner way to output needed Javascript is to add it
> as needed from the Renderers that require it (using a request-scoped
> attribute to track if its been added already).
