    Dynamic navigation

    Matt Drees Master

      Is there a reason view-ids in nav rules in pages.xml couldn't be expression language statements?

      for example:

       <navigation from-action="#{simpleComponent.doSomething}">
       <redirect view-id="#{dynamicNavigationManager.nextPage}"/>
       </navigation>
      


      Right now, I can do something like
      SimpleComponent {
      
      @In dynamicNavigationManager
      
      public String doSomething() {
       ...
       return dynamicNavigationManager.nextPage();
      
      }
      


      But it'd be nice to keep SimpleComponent as simple as possible, and have doSomething() return void. Also, this method forces a redirect (which is usually what I want, but maybe sometimes you don't. There was a recent forum post of someone who didn't).

      I'll probably create a Jira request, but thought I'd post here to see if anyone thought it was clearly a bad idea.
