Verifications for NetBeans versions

Plugin is not subject to any verification


RichFaces, which is a rich component library for JSF and an advanced framework for easily integrating AJAX capabilities into business application development, is made available to NetBeans IDE 6.x via this plugin. Two NBM files are provided in the ZIP you download here. One of them puts all the RichFaces JARs in the Library Manager and the other extends the Frameworks panel in the Web Application wizard to let traditional web applications (i.e., not Visual Web applications) provide support out of the box for RichFaces.

First select the Java Server Faces item in the Frameworks panel, then select the RichFaces item. When that item is selected in the Frameworks panel, the JARs are put on the app's classpath, the web.xml is filled in with new entries, new content is put into the JSF welcome page, and a Bean is generated in a new package, registered in the faces-config.xml:

NetBeans IDE 7.3 supports RichFaces

Maybe you could just start up NetBeans IDE 7.3 where you'll find RichFaces support out of the box, no plugin needed.

Any Plans to support NB 7.3

Maybe you could open source the plugin, so other people or groups could contribute :)

are there any plans for the latest RF4 and NB7 support

thanks for the great plugin, do you have any plans on upgrading this for a richfaces 4/netbeans 7 combination? I tried to use this plugin and make my own, but don't really know enough about netbeans plugin development to get it to work. thanks

Visual editing and Facelets support

Great job. Hope the next versions have visual editing and facelets support, so I can quit Eclipse.
