Subject [jira] Created: (MYFACES-2428) Id generation for facelets cause problems with htmlunit 2.4 or lower

Id generation for facelets cause problems with htmlunit 2.4 or lower

                 Key: MYFACES-2428
             Project: MyFaces Core
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: JSR-314
            Reporter: Leonardo Uribe
            Assignee: Leonardo Uribe

The id generation strategy is critical to allow partial state saving works correctly, because
all component state is saved on a map, and the clientId is the primary key for it.

Actually, we just pass the facelet generated id for each tag as a seed for UniqueIdVendor.createUniqueId(FacesContext
context, java.lang.String seed), This id cause an exception in htmlunit version 2.4 or lower
(in 2.5 this was fixed).

The objective of UniqueIdVendor interface is reduce the variation when ids are generated.
The ideal case is that for any facelet page the generated ids assigned to components should
remain the same no matter if the model changes by some reason.

The problem starts when it is used <c:forEach> or <c:if> tags, because its behavior
depends on the "model" state in a point of the time. The id generated by facelets is depends
on the facelet "alias" page name, a counter id from CompilationManager.

We need to do multiple tests for worst case scenarios, and try to define an strategy to reduce
the variability of ids, providing proper "seeds" for it. 

Suggestions are welcome
