>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Skinning
>            Reporter: Jeanne Waldman
>            Assignee: Jeanne Waldman

> A third party (Oracle MDS) would like to use their own InputStreamProvider to find skinning
css files (like purple-desktop.css) in their own system. The current ways to find css files
do not work for them.
> 1. We first discussed decorating ExternalContext.getResource(), since in
> Trinidad we create the URL by calling FacesContext's ExternalContext's
> getResource(style-sheet-name). For an example, see
> 2. This won't work for them because it returns an URL object
> 3. using ExternalContext's getResourceAsStream won't work because you can't find out
if the file has been modified.
> 4. What would work is if they decorate or extend the InputStreamProvider, and we check
this if none of the other means finds the .css file. The other means are those found in
> 5. To allow them to plugin their InputStreamProvider we
> can do this with a service provider interface where we open up
> META-INF/services/<fully qualified classname of service> and load all of the
> services that way.
