Subject RE: How to extend datatable to accomodate grouping
Date Mon, 13 Feb 2006 22:16:36 GMT

I don't want to sound rude, but I'm a little bit concerned about using
bleeding edge releases in my production environment.  The feature
described below is brilliant, but I'd like to see it in action for a
while before I stake my job on it.

Are there any other strategies for grouping data in JSF?

 Category 1
 Contract_Number, Contract_Description
 Contract_Number, Contract_Description

 Category 2
 Contract_Number, Contract_Description

You might take a look at this feature.  It was added yesterday so you'll
have to grab the source from svn and build myfaces yourself (which is
easy to do now that we've switched to maven).
