First of all, thank you for your hard work on A4JSF!
I've just noticed an answer for a thread on the Seam forum and I'm curious how do you perceive this problem in general:
...suggesting cleaning browser cache as a solution for a specific error.
Ok, as a developer I can do it after A4JSF update that requires it. I have application server logs. But after going into production environment and when in the future there will be a need for such update after a huge amount of users got it cached...?
Don't you feel scared by this? Suggesting reload in this situation can be often a no-go (uneducated users, perceived system credibility and stability etc.). Some users will simple leave my site and never come back after seeing a total mess or non-working core components.
Another question is how to make user to reload his cache (special error page for ResourceNotFoundException, suggesting cache reload?). Come on... It does not look promising...
fernando_jmt has proposed a clean solution for this problem here
, we use similiar thing for generated resources in our old applications.
Don't you feel that this is a major problem and it prevents more experienced users from adopting your great framework for their applications?
I really see a lot, lot of promise in A4JSF and Richfaces, but this issue just makes me worry before thinking about incorporating it into my stuff :(.
