Add argument component, which is assumed to represent a resource instance, as a resource to this view. A resource instance is rendered by a resource Renderer, as described in the Standard HTML RenderKit. The default implementation must call through to addComponentResource(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, javax.faces.component.UIComponent, java.lang.String).

Parameters:

                                 String target)

Add argument component, which is assumed to represent a resource instance, as a resource to this view. A resource instance is rendered by a resource Renderer, as described in the Standard HTML RenderKit.

The component must be added using the following algorithm:

  • If the target argument is null, look for a target attribute on the component. If there is no target attribute, set target to be the default value head

  • Call getComponentResources(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.String) to obtain the child list for the given target.

  • If the component ID of componentResource matches the the ID of a resource that has allready been added, remove the old resource.

  • Add the component resource to the list.

Parameters:
context - FacesContext for the current request
componentResource - The UIComponent representing a Resource instance
target - The name of the facet for which the UIComponent will be added
Since:

Return an unmodifiable List of UIComponents for the provided target agrument. Each component in the List is assumed to represent a resource instance.

The default implementation must use an algorithm equivalent to the the following.

  • Locate the facet for the component by calling getFacet() using target as the argument.
  • If the facet is not found, create the facet by calling context.getApplication().createComponent() using javax.faces.Panel as the argument
    • Set the id of the facet to be target
    • Add the facet to the facets Map using target as the key
  • return the children of the facet

                            PhaseId phaseId)

Broadcast any events that have been queued. First broadcast events that have been queued for PhaseId.ANY_PHASE. Then broadcast ane events that have been queued for the current phase. In both cases, UIComponent.pushComponentToEL(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, javax.faces.component.UIComponent) must be called before the event is broadcast, and UIComponent.popComponentFromEL(javax.faces.context.FacesContext) must be called after the return from the broadcast, even in the case of an exception.

processRestoreState

public void processRestoreState(FacesContext context,

The default implementation must call UIComponentBase.processRestoreState(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.Object) from within a try block. The try block must have a finally block that ensures that no FacesEvents remain in the event queue, that any PhaseListeners in getPhaseListeners() are invoked as appropriate, and that the this.UIComponent.visitTree(javax.faces.component.visit.VisitContext, javax.faces.component.visit.VisitCallback) is called, passing a ContextCallback that takes the following action: call the UIComponent.processEvent(javax.faces.event.ComponentSystemEvent) method of the current component. The argument event must be an instance of PostRestoreStateEvent whose component property is the current component in the traversal.

If getBeforePhaseListener() returns non-null, invoke it, passing a PhaseEvent for the PhaseId.RENDER_RESPONSE phase. If the internal list populated by calls to addPhaseListener(javax.faces.event.PhaseListener) is non-empty, any listeners in that list must have their PhaseListener.beforePhase(javax.faces.event.PhaseEvent) method called, passing the PhaseEvent. Any errors that occur during invocation of any of the the beforePhase listeners must be logged and swallowed. After listeners are invoked call superclass processing.

Overrides:
encodeBegin in class UIComponentBase

Any errors that occur during invocation of the afterPhase listener must be logged and swallowed. If the current view has view parameters, as indicated by a non-empty and non-UnsupportedOperationException throwing return from ViewDeclarationLanguage.getViewMetadata(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, String), call UIViewParameter.encodeAll(javax.faces.context.FacesContext) on each parameter. If calling getViewParameters() causes UnsupportedOperationException to be thrown, the exception must be silently swallowed.

Return the Locale to be used in localizing the response being created for this view.

Algorithm:

If we have a locale ivar, return it. If we have a value expression for "locale", get its value. If the value is null, return the result of calling ViewHandler.calculateLocale(javax.faces.context.FacesContext). If the value is an instance of java.util.Locale return it. If the value is a String, convert it to a java.util.Locale and return it. If there is no value expression for "locale", return the result of calling ViewHandler.calculateLocale(javax.faces.context.FacesContext).

Returns:

getViewMap

public Map<String,Object> getViewMap()

This implementation simply calls through to getViewMap(boolean), passing true as the argument, and returns the result.

Since:
2.0

getViewMap

public Map<String,Object> getViewMap(boolean create)

Returns a Map that acts as the interface to the data store that is the "view scope", or, if this instance does not have such a Map and the create argument is true, creates one and returns it. This map must be instantiated lazily and cached for return from subsequent calls to this method on this UIViewRoot instance. Application.publishEvent(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.Class, java.lang.Object) must be called, passing PostConstructViewMapEvent.class as the first argument and this UIViewRoot instance as the second argument.

The returned Map must be implemented such that calling clear() on the Map causes Application.publishEvent(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.Class, java.lang.Object) to be called, passing PreDestroyViewMapEvent.class as the first argument and this UIViewRoot instance as the second argument.

See FacesContext.setViewRoot(javax.faces.component.UIViewRoot) for the specification of when the clear() method must be called.

Parameters:

saveState

public Object saveState(FacesContext context)
Description copied from interface: StateHolder

 Object state = component.saveState(facesContext);
 

component should be the same as before executing it.

The return from this method must be Serializable

Description copied from interface: StateHolder

Perform any processing required to restore the state from the entries in the state Object.

If the class that implements this interface has references to instances that also implement StateHolder (such as a UIComponent with event handlers, validators, etc.) this method must call the StateHolder.restoreState(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.Object) method on all those instances as well.

Specified by:
restoreState in interface StateHolder
Overrides:
restoreState in class UIComponentBase
