Subject Re: Inclusion of MyFace API in javaee-api jar
Date Fri, 28 Oct 2011 20:13:20 GMT
the myfaces-api is the ASF impl of javax.faces.*. 

But otoh the JSF api design makes the api depending on small internal classes which make the
myfaces-api work with just the myfaces-impl. Same with Mojarra. At least that was the case
the last time I tried that shortly ;)

Of course you can run apps which are compiled against the myfaces-api also with mojarra and
vice versa.

Thus I'd say you can include it IF you don't want to be able to run Mojarra on tomee instead
of MyFaces.
