Subject Re: ordering tck failures in geronimo
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2010 20:12:15 GMT
Hi

I think it is not necessary to pass FacesConfigurationProvider as param for
getFacesConfigData, because in theory we don't do anything with it before
pass it and wrappers will not do anything with it later. I think it looks
good to load it using
FacesConfigurationProviderFactory.getFacesConfigurationProvider(ExternalContext).


The other parts of the patch looks good.

Leonardo Uribe
