a lot of questions, and I have a question back to you:)
Are you planning to use Ant or Maven?
If yes, then you will probably get a lot of help by the many maven plugins around.
- maven-war-plugin can help you package your project
- maven-cargo-plugin can help you deploy your project
URL's to the projects are here:
So, if the answer to my question is "Maven", then you will probably be able to solve all your challenges using the above mentioned plugins.
No. I am not using ANT or MAVEN.
I searched across the net for this problem. But I get no satisfactory answer. The tutorials are only about JSF and Eclipse. That's why I have posted it on Forum that I'll found the developer who have or who should be working on this scenario.
I am not planning to use Maven or ANT
okey...well, have you searched for eclipse plugins that fit your requirements?
Eclipse war plugin: http://jakarta.apache.org/cactus/integration/eclipse/webapp_plugin.html#features
Eclipse deploy plugin:
or, you could use the "Eclipse Europe Java EE Developers" bundle. I think it should contain the things you need:
or, you could try the MyEclipse project:
But, just curious: Why are you not planning to use Maven or Ant?
When it comes to tutorials...have you looked at the Richfaces demo site?
It contains tons of examples how to use all of the Richfaces and Ajax tags. Eclipse is just an IDE for developing applications, adding Richfaces/Ajax behavior to your applications should just be a matter of adding some Richfaces specific information to your web.xml file, adding some jar files (if you would have chosen to use Maven, it would be a matter of adding dependencies to your pom.xml file) and you would be ready to develop highclass web applications using JSF + Richfaces with AJAX behavior.
If you also take a look at the Developer guide you would be guided through what is needed in web.xml and so on...
Viggo Thanks for reply. As I have written in heading that i am using
Eclipse Europe Java EE Developers Eclipse IDE for JSF. But It only supports JSF and If i try to use richfaces it does not even run JSF project. And Tomcat start giving me the errors.
1. But what is it that makes it impossible to use Richfaces?
2. What kind of errors do you get in tomcat?
I have planned to use ant in my JSF project so that I can automatically deploy my project war file in Tomcat webapp folder. And Please tell me whole setting for JSF and RichFaces in eclipse from scratch. I'll be thankfull to you. My Email address is "firstname.lastname@example.org". Please upload pics of all steps if u can....
But tell me that how can i do it with ant.
