public class HtmlPanelGroup
extends UIPanel

Causes all child components of this component to be rendered. This is useful in scenarios where a parent component is expecting a single component to be present, but the application wishes to render more than one.

By default, the rendererType property must be set to "javax.faces.Group". This value can be changed by calling the setRendererType() method.
