Subject MyFaces for production? Not even basic conformance with HTML 4.01?
Date Sun, 21 Oct 2007 13:25:31 GMT

Hello all,

I am evaluating JSF as an option for our next web project. I did some basic
evaluation with Suns implementation. It works fine and was easy to get
started. We would like to use more elaborated components and I took a quick
look at MyFaces and Tomahawk. Unfortunately not with the same success and
hopefully all my "beginners fault". First of all, I did still not manage to
run MyFaces 1.2 successfully. Even in a most basic "hello user" example, I
get a lot of complains about value expressions, which are not permitted as
attribute values (Java 6, Tomcat 6. Could this be the problem?). Next I
looked at the latest Tomahawk examples. They use MyFaces 1.1 but the
resulting HTML is full of errors and warnings. Even with my most basic
"hello user" example (only one button and one input field), I get complains
about invalid name and id attributes. The values start with underscores,
which is not allowed in HTML4.

So I wonder if it makes sense to continue with the MyFaces Implementation.
Did I miss something? Don't You think, Spec and HTML4 conformance is
important? Do You know other implementations, which are adhere to the Specs?
I appreciate any hint or comment.

Thank You all
