    Writing an ajax4jsf component without CDK

    Jim Ho Newbie

      Can anyone give a SIMPLE example to demonstrate how to write a ajax4jsf component without making use of CDK.

      By the way, why there is no package "org.ajax4jsf.ajax.html" in source bundle? Where can I obtain codes in that package, e.g. HtmlAjaxSupport...
      Or they are not open source?

      Thanks in advance.

          You can create ajax component by hand, as any other. CDK is only decrease volume of a manual coding for a component properties, save/restore state, JSP/facelets tags, configuration files.
          Where Is not a propoetary package org.ajax4jsf.ajax.html , this classes generated by CDK.

            I am not familiar with CDK's template language as well as Maven.

            Since there are only a few documents for CDK, in the short term,
            it's better for me to develop components without CDK.

            I'm trying to making a component by copying a RichFaces component, i.e., SimpleTogglePanel.
            The only difference is the package name.
            I wrote a simple application making use of the component,
            but my server showed an error message in deploying time.

             at org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig.deployWAR(HostConfig.java:825)
            ...


            I had tried the same thing on TogglePanel and it works fine.
            But when I tried to move on ToggleControl, the same error message occurred.

            I find out that ToggleControl and SimpleTogglePanel both extends AjaxActionComponent, so it might be the cause of the error message?

            How to solve this problem?

            p.s.
            My environment is Tomcat 6.0.10 + Sun JSF 1.2_04 P01 RI.

              AHA! After updating the version of JSF RI (to JSF 1.2_04 P02),
              the error message becomes more detailed and accurate.

              I think I probably know the mistake.
