    Seam and JSTL

    Robert Smol Newbie

      Hi,
      I'm still quite new to SEAM and Java coding at all. Is there anything specific needed to setup Seam with JSTL? I use Facelets as recommend in the book and reference manual.

      page.xhtml

      <ui:composition xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
       xmlns:s="http://jboss.com/products/seam/taglib"
       xmlns:ui="http://java.sun.com/jsf/facelets"
       xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core"
       xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html"
       xmlns:c="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core"
       template="layout/template.xhtml">
      <ui:define name="body">
      
       <c:if test="true">
       Generate this template text if s "true"
       </c:if>
       <c:if test="false">
       Generate this template text if s "false"
       </c:if>
      </ui:define>
      </ui:composition>


      Produces:
      Generate this template text if s "true" Generate this template text if s "false"


      Source of rendered HTML page:

      <c:if test="true">
      Generate this template text if s "true"
      </c:if>
      <c:if test="false">
      Generate this template text if s "false"
      </c:if>

      I guess the code is just copied to output and not processed by JSTL? I'm using seam-gen to generate project and so far I've only modified build.xml to copy jstl-1.1.0.jar to WEB-INF/lib of app.war. I've also tried to substitute "true" with "#{true}" and "${true}", not sure if that matters. JBOSS server output did not tell anything suspicious. Any hints?

      Best regards
