    Need help creating richfaces-impl-jsf2 w/ manually building RichFaces 3.3.3 Final

    Chris Harris Newbie

      Specs:

      JSF2

      RichFaces 3.3.3 Final

      Facelets 1.1.16

      WAS 6.1

      MyFaces 2.0.2

      Tomahawk and Tomahawk Sandbox 1.1.10

      java version 1.5

       

      Hi.

       

      I needed to manually build RichFaces 3.3.3 Final using Maven 2, because I needed to make some minor changes.  I was successful in accomplishing that task by following:

      http://community.jboss.org/wiki/HowToBuildRichFacesSnapshotsManually33x

       

      The problem I'm faced with is that I'm having trouble building the JSF2 version of RichFaces 3.3.3 Final.  I currently use the JSF2 version of RichFaces 3.3.3 Final in a Production app.  So, I need to create richfaces-impl-jsf2.jar.

       

      I've come across this link (I'll call this link A):

      http://community.jboss.org/wiki/HowtoaddRichFaces33xtomavenbasedproject

       

      and this link (I'll call this link B):

      http://community.jboss.org/wiki/RichFaces333andJSF20

       

      Link A mentions pasting:

      <dependency>
            <groupId>org.richfaces.ui</groupId>
            <artifactId>richfaces-ui</artifactId>
            <version>${richfaces.version}</version>
          </dependency>

      and

      <dependency>
            <groupId>org.richfaces.framework</groupId>
            <artifactId>richfaces-impl-jsf2</artifactId>
            <version>3.3.3.Final</version>
          </dependency>

      within the <dependencies> tags according to "3.3.3 version comes with two richfaces-impl jars in order to provide  jsf2 compatible version. So additionally to ui dependency from above you  have to add richfaces-impl of needed version"

       

      Well, I've tried putting those in pom.xml at C:\richfaces-ui-3.3.3.Final-src\richfaces-ui-3.3.3.Final    (root)

      That resulted in an error message:

      C:\richfaces-ui-3.3.3.Final-src\richfaces-ui-3.3.3.Final>mvn clean install

      [INFO] Scanning for projects...

      :richfaces-api --> org.richfaces.ui:richfaces-ui --> org.richfaces.framework:richfaces-api

      [INFO] Final Memory: 5M/9M

      [INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------

       

      So, I tried removing

      <dependency>
            <groupId>org.richfaces.ui</groupId>
            <artifactId>richfaces-ui</artifactId>
            <version>${richfaces.version}</version>
          </dependency>

      and left the 1 richfaces-impl-jsf2 dependency mentioned earlier.

       

      That didn't work either.  Here's the error message:

      [INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      [ERROR] BUILD FAILURE
      [INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------

      So, I noticed that link B mentioned:

      NOTE - if you had no richfaces-ui dependency  in your project ( assuming api and impl transitively added), but had  all three dependencies listed (ui, api and impl) - you should replace richfaces-impl with richfaces-impl-jsf2 mentioned above.

       

      I don't see anything named richfaces-ui.  That means that I'd have to replace richfaces-impl with richfaces-impl-jsf2, but root's pom.xml has no dependencies listed.  I see ui as a module in the root pom.xml.

       

      Am I altering the wrong pom.xml file?  I tried adding that dependency within pom.xml in C:\richfaces-ui-3.3.3.Final-src\richfaces-ui-3.3.3.Final\ui

      ui's pom.xml has

      <dependency>
                  <groupId>org.richfaces.framework</groupId>
                  <artifactId>richfaces-api</artifactId>
                  <version>3.3.3.Final</version>
              </dependency>

      as a dependency, but I don't see richfaces-impl listed as a dependency.  If I place

      <dependency>
            <groupId>org.richfaces.framework</groupId>
            <artifactId>richfaces-impl-jsf2</artifactId>
            <version>3.3.3.Final</version>
          </dependency>

      in there, I get this error message:

      To be thorough in verifying that it was time to do a face palm, I then pasted:

      <dependency>
            <groupId>org.richfaces.ui</groupId>
            <artifactId>richfaces-ui</artifactId>
            <version>${richfaces.version}</version>
          </dependency>

      in ui's pom.xml along with the richfaces-impl-jsf2 dependency.

       

      Sure enough, back to this error:


      C:\richfaces-ui-3.3.3.Final-src\richfaces-ui-3.3.3.Final>mvn clean install

      What exactly am I doing wrong?

       

      I'm about to upgrade my face palm to a head desk.  Also, do I have to run "mvn install" from root every time and wait ~ 32 minutes?  My work laptop is slow if that amount of time seems absurd.
