Subject [Shale Wiki] Update of "ShaleAndSpring" by ReneZanner

content moved from Struts Wiki

New page:
Since version 1.1.5 of Spring, that framework has included a convenient integration with JSF
that may be leveraged in a Shale based application. The integration includes a custom JSF
{{{VariableResolver}}} implementation that is invoked first whenever a value binding or method
binding expression is evaluated.  In other words, the JSF managed beans facility behaves like

* If there is a registered managed bean for the specified name, use the standard JSF facilities
to create it (as usual).

* If there is a configuration for this bean in the Spring WebApplicationContext, use Spring's
bean creation facilities to create it.

* If neither of the above facilities recognizes the name, return {{{null}}}.

This technique allows you to transparently use JSF value binding expressions (either in components,
or through programmatic manipulation) that access beans managed by Spring instead of by the
JSF managed beans facility.

In order to use this facility, simply include the following JAR files in your {{{/WEB-INF/lib}}}

* From Shale, {{{shale-spring.jar}}} (in addition to {{{shale.jar}}}).

* From Spring, {{{spring-core.jar}}}, {{{spring-context.jar}}}, and {{{spring-web.jar}}}.

Additional information may be found on the [
Shale homepage].
