We are using the visual page editor of the jboss-tools in our Eclipse (actually a Spring tool suite) for editing JSF2 files. We were suprised to learn that the editor would only recognize the backing beans that are annotated with the (deprecated) annotation
ManagedBean, as we use only Spring-managed beans. We tried and use the JSR-330 annotation
Named, but this is not recognized either. Is there a specific reason for this behaviour? Can we somehow enable jboss-tools to recognize the
Namedbeans? We don't want to add
ManagedBean just for the editor.
Thank you in advance!
Due to the lack of an answer I assume that this is a missing feature and opened a feature request: [JBIDE-26581] Visual page editor of jboss-tools should recognize “Named” annotation - JBoss Issue Tracker
