ICEfaces support

Hi,

Is it possible to develop ICEfaces applications in IntelliJ IDEA even though a plugin does not exist ?

When will a plugin be developed ?


Thanks a lot,
Andrei

Of course you can use any JSF component set you like. There just isn't any visual designer for it.
If the thought of reading and writing XHTML files (if you use facelets - which you should IMHO)
or JSP files gives you the creeps, then you are out of luck.

Maybe just use the NetBeans plugin for the first couple of pages, then grok the generated code
and go manually from there on.

A visual JSF designer has often been requested, and JetBrains did have a go at it for a short
time, but it never made it into production.
I think a big problem is that each component would need manual work to integrate:
Trinidad, ADF Rich Faces, ICEFaces, JBoss RichFaces, Woodstock, Backbase, ...

In my experience it was always a pain in my neck for me to develop with
JSF using visual editors. perhaps I used the wrong ones and am still
waiting for a usable one. It is not necessary actually if you have the
"normal" development help like code completion ..

Hi,

I just wanted to add a link here to a tutorial that's been put up over at icefaces.org that describes how to configure IntelliJ to use ICEfaces. It's not an integration, but hopefully the next-best thing.

Using ICEfaces with IntelliJ

Ken
