Designtime API Guide Available
By Tor Norbye on Jan 25, 2005
Joe Nuxoll has published the Creator Design Time API Guide for JSF components. This guide tells you how to add design time behavior to your components such that users of your components can have a rich experience with them in the IDE - you can create interactive wizards run at component drop, write customizers for the components, allow your components to specify which components are allowed as children of your container component, etc. etc. I have a special fondness for these APIs since they are how you can "talk" to the designer :-) (The API javadocs have been available online for a while.)
He will also soon be hosting an online chat on the subject. If you're a JSF component developer you definitely want to both read the article in depth and check out the chat!
Joe has a blog but it looks like he needs a nudge to start writing... Take it away, Joe!
