Class ViewDeclarationLanguageFactory

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public abstract class ViewDeclarationLanguageFactory
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements FacesWrapper<ViewDeclarationLanguageFactory>

    ViewDeclarationLanguageFactory is a factory object that creates (if needed) and returns a new ViewDeclarationLanguage instance based on the VDL found in a specific view.

    There must be one ViewDeclarationLanguageFactory instance per web application that is utilizing Jakarta Server Faces. This instance can be acquired, in a portable manner, by calling:

       ViewDeclarationLanguageFactory factory = (ViewDeclarationLanguageFactory)

    Usage: extend this class and push the implementation being wrapped to the constructor and use getWrapped() to access the instance being wrapped.
