If we had infinite time we would probably support both JSP and Facelets.
Since we don't have that time we only provide one (and it has to be fixed to be usable with latest JBoss Seam release) :(
Why JSP ? Well... People are probably more used to JSP than Facelets so they can start modifying the result right away.
That said, it could be better to provide a Facelet only version, i'm not sure...
I started an attempt to make an Eclipse wizard but had too much to do. Another call for volunteers ;)
yeah plus Gavin has masochistic tendencies ;)
jokes aside, the main reason is what Thomas said.
people recognize jsp so we did that first.
Gavin has talked about updating the templates; but we always appreciate contributions in enhancing them.
Yes, I plan to port the templates to facelets, but there is also a lot more work to go in that area over the next few weeks.
Thats good to know, thanks for the info.
I been away from Seam in the last few months, so I am catching up on all the work you guys have done.
I m pitching Seam to a customer next month, so hopefully, Ill get time to dig in more and possibly help out in some areas.
