Page layouts in Visual web pack
By Roman Strobl on XI 01, 2007
Winston Prakash wrote a pretty cool plug-in for Visual web pack which lets you choose one of the page layouts when creating a new visual JSF page. I tried it and it works great.
It would be awesome if you could create your own templates with your favorite HTML editor, import them into Visual web pack and then add your functionality. Winston's plug-in seems to be the first step in that direction. When you are designing your web application you don't have to start from scratch but you have pre-defined layouts. My wish is that I could design these page layouts with an external tool and import them into Visual web pack and work with them. But I realize this is very hard to implement.
