Subject Re: [shale-validator] SV: view controller - site navigation
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2007 08:46:02 GMT

Hi 

The faces-config.xml was only a cutout. I have defined more navigation cases
so that different target methods had different outcomes. But I don’t
understand what you mean with “Deferring the outcome to the actual method to
be invoked”. Should I call a target method from the init method – this make
no sense for me.
