ADF Faces Skin Editor - How to Work with It
By Shay Shmeltzer on Jun 30, 2011
The ODTUG Kscop11 conference was a great success with lots of sessions about FMW running in a special track. I did several sessions and labs in the conference, and I thought it might be a good idea to at least give you a taste of what you might have missed.
So here is most of what I demoed in my ADF Faces Skinning session (not all though - that session was 60 minutes long, and while everyone did end up going out of the building in the middle because of a fire drill for about 5 minutes, there was other things covered in the session as well).
In the demo here you'll see how to generate new images and default color scheme, how to identify a component class with Firebug, how to skin a component, how to identify the global selector of a property, how to change fonts and how to change strings.
in the demo I add an entry to the web.xml file which prevent ADF Faces from compressing the HTML that is generated.
The entry is for org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.DISABLE_CONTENT_COMPRESSION
and I set it to true. This is very useful when you work on creating the skin, but don't forget to un-set it before you go production.
