    Can I use multiple faces-config.xml?

    Murilo Henrique Marecki Foltran Newbie

      Hi all,

      I'm developing a large application with Jboss Seam, and a faces-config.xml has becoming a huge file. So I see in Myfaces project the possibility to set many config files for the navigation rules. Using a parameter javax.faces.CONFIG_FILES in web.xml.

      Like this:

       <context-param>
       <param-name>javax.faces.CONFIG_FILES</param-name>
       <param-value>
       /WEB-INF/faces-config.xml, /WEB-INF/other-file.xml
       </param-value>
       </context-param>


      So, when I run Jboss the deploy works fine. In a console appears the read of files:

      14:06:36,032 INFO [FacesConfigurator] Reading config /WEB-INF/faces-config.xml
      14:06:36,360 INFO [FacesConfigurator] Reading config /WEB-INF/murilo.xml
      14:06:36,407 INFO [FacesConfigurator] Reading config /WEB-INF/faces-config.xml
      


      Jboss read two times the faces-config.xml, Is Seam reading the second time?

      But when I open the first page the follow exception raise up:

      This is a pretty funcionality of JSF, because it organize better the config files and help the developers don't fight by the overwrite other modifications.

      Is this funcionality possible?

      Thanks in advance.
