javax.faces.component
Annotation Type FacesComponent


@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
@Target(value=TYPE)
@Inherited
public @interface FacesComponent

The presence of this annotation on a class automatically registers the class with the runtime as a UIComponent. The value of the value() attribute is taken to be the component-type and the fully qualified class name of the class to which this annotation is attached is taken to be the component-class. The implementation must guarantee that for each class annotated with FacesComponent, found with the scanning algorithm in section JSF.11.5, Application.addComponent(java.lang.String,java.lang.String) is called, passing the derived component-type as the first argument and the derived component-class as the second argument. The implementation must guarantee that all such calls to addComponent() happen during application startup time and before any requests are serviced.
