Developing JSF 2.0 component for Richfaces 4 with Ajax callbacks

Mark Bakker Newbie



I wanna develop an mindmap component (a node). I have developed this component before in JSF 1.2 in Icefaces.

But I wanna migrate it to Richfaces 4 (JSF 2.0).


I did found the basis component creation:


@FacesComponent(value = "node")
public class Node extends UIComponentBase {




But I can't find anything on:


How can I send value updates (like x,y position updates) to the component from javascript.

In Icefaces I used an hidden field and an onchange event = send partialupdates.

After setting the hidden field I fired an onchange event.


Here I wanna use fine grained events like a positionUpdateEvent.

How do I do this? I found something about jsf.ajax.request but no references how to use the events in the components.


I also wanna know how to update a part of the dom and not rerender the complete component.


I hope someone can send me in the right direction.



Kind regards,
