Subject Re: How do I get the Method EL Expression of actionListener in JSF 2.0?
Date Sun, 06 Mar 2011 13:14:51 GMT
@All, Leonardo,

It took me some time before I had time to try out your suggestion.

And I have to say, it works like a charm.  But it is deeply nested so
therefor, here are the steps that I took to get my hands on the expression
string of the actionListener attribute (within facelets)

- Create a custom TagHandlerDelegateFactory.  Define it in your faces config
file with <application><tag-handler-delegate-factory>.  The constructor
takes one parameter, another TagHandlerDelegateFactory.  All methods
delegate to the constructor received object.  The
createComponentHandlerDelegate method returns a wrapped version of a
TagHandlerDelegate.
- wrapped TagHandlerDelegate -> within createMetaRuleset we add a new
MetaRule when ActionSource.class.isAssignableFrom(type).
- new MetaRule -> within applyRule method we return a new Metadata when the
name equals actionListener (the attribute).  El expression can be retrieved
by attribute.getValue().
- new Metadata -> within applyMetadata method, we put the EL expression on
the attributes of the UIComponent.

Then, you have always access to the expression string by looking at the
attributes of the component.

I have tested the approach with Myfaces and Mojarra.

Code is probably better to understand, so you will find it here (1)
