UIViewRoot.addComponentResource() adding multiple components with same ID instead of replacing

                 Key: MYFACES-2908
             Project: MyFaces Core
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: JSR-314
    Affects Versions: 2.0.2-SNAPSHOT
            Reporter: Michael Concini
            Assignee: Michael Concini

Looks like when MYFACES-2854 was committed, there were two issues it caused where we break
spec compliance.  Both are around behavior that "If the component ID of componentResource
matches the the ID of a resource that has allready been added, remove the old resource."

The first is that it looks like the "else if (componentId != null)" statement is in the wrong
If a UIComponent is added with the same ID as an existing component, we'll never get to this
check since we'll  be false on the isInView() check.  
This will cause duplicate ID exceptions to be thrown if multiple objects with the same ID
are added.  
This is easily resolved by moving the else if to kick in whenever isInView() is false.

The second issue, and the more important since this is breaking a TCK test, is that since
we were only comparing to the parent's ID to the location prefix, we weren't handling the
case where the same object gets added a second time after updating the target.  
This can be resolved by changing 

            if (componentResource.getParent() != null &&
                componentResource.getParent().getId() != null &&
            if (componentResource.getParent() != null &&
                componentResource.getParent().getId() != null &&
                componentResource.getParent().getId().equals(JAVAX_FACES_LOCATION_PREFIX +

I'll attach a patch for review while I wait for our CTS team to try the change out.  I probably
wont' be able to commit until after the US Labor Day holiday since I'm away Friday.
