Subject Re: include rendered JSF output in JSP page
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2007 09:37:41 GMT

Hi Simon,

thanks for the hint - sounds great. I need to check, if the httpclient opens
a separate HttpSession, because our new JSF portlets need to communicate
with the existing servlet/jsp application using the existing user sessions.   

I'll have a look at this lib a little later.
