Facelets support on the trunk for NetBeans 6.5

Facelets support is on the trunk for NetBeans 6.5. If you install NetBeans 6.5 Beta, you can install Facelets support from the Update Center. "On the trunk" means there should be no more implementation dependency problems, which caused so many problems for the 6.1 Facelets plugin. If you would like to try out Facelets support in NetBeans 6.5, please see the 6.5 rewrite of the Quickstart tutorial.

Facelets plugins do not install with Patch 2

Two users have reported that neither of the Facelets support nbm files (for FCS and multilingual versions) will install to NetBeans 6.1. I have reproduced this problem. The plugins fail to install, returning an error that a necessary JSP parser module is missing.

The problem appears to be that Patch 2 replaced the JSP parser with a new version, and the nbm files are set up to use the old version. Until a new version of the nbm is created, I'm afraid you need to have an installation of NetBeans IDE 6.1 without updates in order to use Facelets support.

Intro to Facelets tutorial now available for 6.1!

If you want to use Facelets in NetBeans projects, you can now download a ZIP of the NBMs instead of checking out the project and building the NBMs yourself. In honor of this fact, I've updated the Introduction to Facelets tutorial that was written for 5.5. The new version is available here

Now documenting Facelets and Seam support

I've recently taken on the responsibility for documenting Facelets and Seam support in NetBeans IDE. The 6.1 plugins have not been tested yet and so are not available from the plugin center, but I was able to build them and run the 5.5 tutorial with only minor changes. If you would like to try this for yourself:
  1. Go to David Salter's blog post and follow his instructions for checking out and building 6.1 Facelets and Seam support plugins.
  2. Run the Introduction to Facelets tutorial.
  3. Let me know how it goes!
