Subject Proposed new components for sandbox/tomahawk
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2006 02:39:13 GMT
Hi All,

I've developed a couple of small but useful bits of JSF-related code as 
part of a project for my current client, Obsidium Ltd. As seen below, 
Obsidium have kindly allowed this code to be donated to the MyFaces 
project if it's wanted.

I'll create JIRA issues for each of these pieces separately; this email 
is just to get the official confirmation from Obsidium into the public 

To summarize:
  * o:stackPage - fixes the out-of-order problem when using Tiles
    (requires a change to ServletFacesContextImpl or DummyFormUtils)
  * o:autoActivate can be wrapped around other components to cause
    a submit of the page to occur when client-side change occurs to
    the associated HTML component.
  * Enhancement to t:dataTable to allow dynamic reordering of columns

Hi Simon,

Obsidium is happy to domate these components to the MyFaces library. Our
organisation has benefitted from the spirit of open source donations 
from other
organisations, so we'll continue on with that spirit.
