How to Use MyFaces with GlassFish - an Update
By pelegri on Dec 14, 2008
Most migrations to GlassFish are straight-forward, a testimony to the value of the JavaEE specification (and to the extra care to the user in the GF community!). The only area that sometimes requires non-trivial changes are dependencies on implementation details in MyFaces.
The GlassFish JSF implementation (Mojarra) is Used in Many Containers and the new JSF 2.0 spec should improve portability but GF supports a useMyFaces Property for this use case. Arun just published a note showing how to use the property when Using Apache Tomahawk but I'm extracting here the configuration table for ease of reference:
• On GlassFish v2 - Set "useMyFaces" in "sun-web.xml"
Note that you also need to disable Facelets 2.0 in "web.xml" if you have Facelets 1.1.x dependencies.
