    Mail-Excel-PDF without JSF (With Wicket)

    Rob Shepherd Newbie

      Dear Group,


      This question has been asked before (but it has never received any repiles)


      http://www.seamframework.org/Community/MailAndPDFRendererOutsideJSFLifecycle
      http://www.seamframework.org/Community/MailRenderer


      Could I ask again, to see if anybody has any ideas.


      I'd really like to render email, pdf and excel but I'm using wicket.


      What would be required to get a working renderer?


      With a great many thanks


      Rob

          The pdf/excel/mail renderers are all implemented with JSF components.  It would be essentially a complete rewrite to make them work without JSF.  I don't think that work is currently being taken on, though I could be mistaken.


          Alternatively, under Seam 3 (or under Seam 2 with my patches, search the list) it is possible to use wicket and jsf side by side in a webapp.  In that case, you could use wicket for normal web pages but redirect to jsf pages when you want pdf/excel/mail rendering.
