Many thanks to those of you who have read the post. Can I ask if anyone has any thoughts relating to trying to do this, or experience of trying anything similar please?
Has anyone converted IBM JSF to RichFaces before? For example, the following IBM JSF components:
What is the corresponding counterpart in RichFaces?
From my attempts to perform a similar conversion, I'd not found any coreresponding components within RichFaces to match these - although I have not performed an extensive search. I actually had to stop the conversion because I was finding that I had to rewrite behaviour of pages to use the RichFaces implementation - too much effort and risk being involved.
If I gain further information I'll happily share it. From research, it doesn't look as though this type of conversion is performed much at all.
