PrimeFaces Support in Eclipse Helios
August 31, 2010 7 Comments
After yesterday’s announcement about NetBeans 6.10 support in PrimeFaces, I’ve started thinking about what we can do for PrimeFaces users who have Eclipse Helios to develop their applications. So I’ve downloaded helios and created a sample JSF 2.0 project, after playing with xhtml editor I could only get completion support for tags not the attributes for a tag. Then I’ve figured out that Helios is scanning facelet taglib and so added the attribute metadata to facelet taglib by changing our PrimeFaces code generator plugin and that was it. Now Helios users can get tag and attribute completion with description support as well. Here are some screenshots;
Almost every Eclipse Helios user in PrimeFaces community asked for this support, we even have an issue ticket about this. So I’m glad that we can deliver this functionality to our users with PrimeFaces 2.2.M1.
