Subject Re: [tobago] Problems with (jsf-)FormBasedLogin, stored passwords and FF
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2007 09:41:48 GMT
I use straight html input tags for my form based login pages.
Why do you need <h:input* for this? Because of skinning?
Rather than adding an intrusive "name" attribute I suggest to launch
two new components <tc:inputFormBasedUsername> and
<tc:inputFormBasedPassword>. The form based login is a very special
case and under normal circumstances overriding the name attribute for
a jsf input breaks everything. So this use case actually demands new
component types rather than a hack/patch in the standard input
