Subject [jira] Commented: (EXTCDI-79) introduce client side windowhandler
Date Fri, 19 Nov 2010 10:07:15 GMT


Jakob Korherr commented on EXTCDI-79:

What about using window.location.replace() (see [1]) instead of window.location.href in windowhandler.xhtml?
This would remove the history-entry of windowhandler.html in the browser!

>          Issue Type: New Feature

>    Affects Versions: 0.9.0

> A typical JSF-2 application contains much more GET links than we used to see in JSF-1.
Thus we have far more href link to cope with.
> With a classical approach we would not be able to simply add a windowId parameter to
such links because if the user would open the link in a new browser window or tab, we would
carry the windowId - and thus the window scope - over to the new browser tab/window.
> There is a method to prevent this problem by storing a value directly in the browser
window via JavaScript. Usually this is done in the same page and gets executed in the onLoadEvent
like described in Marios old Orchestra summary. See "Post render window detection" in
> The major downside of this solution is that we might already pollute 'foreign' beans
(and destroy their information) while rendering the page.
> Our new approach now works around this issue by introducing a small static new html window
which gets served via a small servlet (Jsf2WindowHandlerServlet). It gets an 'url' and after
detecting a new window it will drop the windowId parameter via JavaScript on the client and
forwards to the destination page. For creating the destination link I'll override the encodeBookmarkableURL
in an ExternalContextWrapper.
> Instead of the original URL: http://localhost:8080/course/courseDetails.xhtml?windowId=1c9f&courseNr=101348&semester=2010W
> we will create a :  http://localhost:8080/course/windowhandler?url=%2Fcourse%2FcourseDetails.xhtml%3FwindowId%3D1c9f%26courseNr%3D101348%26semester%3D2010W
> The windowhandler servlet serves a simple html which is cachable (TBD), thus it doesn't
lead to duplicated server roundtrips (beside the first time).
