    Richfaces plugin does not generate rich views

    Max Korn Newbie

      Hi all Forge users and devs,

      I'd like create a basic Java EE application which uses Richfaces as JSF library. So I composed the following script:

       

      forge install-plugin richfaces;

       

      richfaces setup;

        

      new-project --named rich --topLevelPackage com.sample;

       

      persistence setup --provider HIBERNATE --container JBOSS_AS7 ;

       

      entity --named Customer;

      field string --named firstName;

      field string --named lastName;

       

      scaffold setup --scaffoldType faces;

       

      scaffold from-entity;

       

      The project "rich" successfully compiles, however having a look in the views created from scaffold, I can see plain JSF is used and no rich: tags are used.

       

      <ui:define name="main">
      <h:panelGrid columnClasses="label,component,required" columns="3">
      <h:outputLabel for="customerBeanCustomerFirstName" value="First Name:"/>
      <h:outputText id="customerBeanCustomerFirstName" value="#{customerBean.customer.firstName}"/>
      <h:outputText/>
      <h:outputLabel for="customerBeanCustomerLastName" value="Last Name:"/>
      <h:outputText id="customerBeanCustomerLastName" value="#{customerBean.customer.lastName}"/>
      <h:outputText/>
      </h:panelGrid>

       

      <div class="buttons">
      <h:link value="View All" outcome="search"/>
      <h:link value="Edit" outcome="create" includeViewParams="true"/>
      <h:link value="Create New" outcome="create"/>
      </div>
      </ui:define>

      Also into web.xml no richfaces intialization is performed. Is there something wrong in my script ?

      maybe should I use a different scaffold for richfaces GUIs ?

      scaffold setup --scaffoldType richfaces (just guessing)

      Thanks
