Install Tomahawk in a seam-gen generated project

Hi,
installing Tomahawk in a Facelets + Seam + JSF project (generated by seam-gen) is really simple:
  1. Add library tomahawk*.jar in lib directory (download from http://myfaces.apache.org/tomahawk/)

  2. Also add those dependencies:
  3. Inside directory resources/WEB-INF create a file named tomahawk.taglib.xml and fill in with contents that you find in the example section to this address: http://wiki.apache.org/myfaces/Use_Facelets_with_Tomahawk
    or you can download it from here.

  4. in web.xml add:

    <context-param>
    <param-name>facelets.LIBRARIES</param-name>
    <param-value>/WEB-INF/tomahawk.taglib.xml</param-value>
    </context-param>
    <!-- Tomahawk -->
    <filter>
    <filter-name>MyFacesExtensionsFilter</filter-name>
    <filter-class>org.apache.myfaces.webapp.filter.ExtensionsFilter</filter-class>
    <init-param>
    <param-name>maxFileSize</param-name>
    <param-value>20m</param-value>
    </init-param>
    </filter>

    <!-- extension mapping for adding <script/>, <link/>, and other resource tags to JSF-pages -->
    <filter-mapping>
    <filter-name>MyFacesExtensionsFilter</filter-name>
    <!-- servlet-name must match the name of your javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet entry -->
    <servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
    </filter-mapping>

    <!-- extension mapping for serving page-independent resources (javascript, stylesheets, images, etc.) -->
    <filter-mapping>
    <filter-name>MyFacesExtensionsFilter</filter-name>
    <url-pattern>/faces/myFacesExtensionResource/*</url-pattern>
    </filter-mapping>

  5. In build.xml, in < todir="${war.dir}/WEB-INF/lib"> section , inside the < dir="${lib.dir}"> tag, add:

    <name="tomahawk*.jar">
    <name="commons-codec*.jar">
    <name="commons-el*.jar">
    <name="commons-fileupload*.jar">
    <name="commons-lang*.jar">
    <name="commons-logging*.jar">
    <name="commons-validator*.jar">
    <name="commons-validator*.js">
    <name="jakarta-oro*.jar">


  6. To use the library in xhtml pages:

    xmlns:t="http://myfaces.apache.org/tomahawk"
Btw THERE IS A PROBLEM: I just found that after adding Tomahawk library the Seam file upload doesn't work, I will tell you more in another post...

P.S.: sorry for bad code posting (I putted a space to make tag visibles), I have to find the time to configure an appropriate css style for code showing.

  • hi demetrio

    I had a problem I'd like to share with you.
    I had a problem with t:calendar and seam. calendar did not work on internet explorer 7.
    after a lot of debugging I discovered that swapping filter order (seam filter and tomahawk filter) solved my problem.
    then I noticed that now the s:fileupload did not work any more.
    swapping again filter order fixed upload and broken calendar again.

    all that I can say is that filters both access to external resources (file for file upload and js for t:calendar).

    I hope this can help someone.
