    RichFaces 4.0: DataTable sorting/filtering feature

    Anton Belevich Novice

           There are some sorting/filtering implementation specific questions which I want to discuss:


        • Should we provide built-in sorting/filtering in the  DataTable in the RF-4.0? Currently there is no built-in sorting exist. We provide only current component visual state via visual model (see DataTable visual models implementation discussion for the details ).  User should implement sorting/filtering by himself. During meeting discussion were proposed next ways of implementation sorting/filtering feature:
          • Write integration code for different DAO frameworks instead of built-in sorting.
          • Implement built-in sorter by default or setter FOR custom sort feature ( for example, to store in SQL "SORT BY" or Hibernate criteria ).



           Thoughts are welcome!
