Subject Re: GENERATED CODE BEGIN (do not modify!)
Date Mon, 11 Sep 2006 19:21:42 GMT

I have added a patch for the code generator, allowing it to use 
_ComponentUtils' methods whenever appropriate.  There were still some 
differences between the generated code and the code in the repository 
after doing this. Almost all files are affected by the code generation 
process in terms of whitespace usage, but there were also some manual 
changes in the generated code blocks.  The patch also includes a 
solution for all these changes, either by providing an updated XML 
definition file or by adding/removing methods from the generated code 
block in the source file itself.

If someone has the time to validate this patch file, please let me know 
what has to be changed/added in order for it to be useful for the 
MyFaces project.
