Subject [FWD]: JSF 2.0 Regarding fileuploads in the ppr cycle
Date Tue, 21 Apr 2009 18:51:39 GMT
Hello since I post over gmane I cannot directly forward the mail.

I got an answer from Roger Kitain regarding the iframe issue, seems
like there is no /dev/null...

No seriously I did not get an answer to my first mail
regarding the javax.faces.ViewState issue (probably lost in the spam 
catchers somewhere (I should leave out the word Viagra, I assume :-) )), 
but the second one was answered within 5 minutes, they really take the 
job seriously.

     Hello Werner -

     File Upload was briefly discussed with our Ajax EG members and it 
was decided that for the initial spec release
     to hold off on it.  We wanted to get the basic stuff in first. 
that is something we can certainly get to
     in 2.1.

     BTW - who is this /dev/null character anyway?    ;-)

     Regards, Roger.
