Class StateManagementStrategy

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.faces.view.StateManagementStrategy

public abstract class StateManagementStrategy
extends Object

Encapsulate the saving and restoring of the view to enable the VDL to take over the responsibility for handling this feature. Because ViewDeclarationLanguage.getStateManagementStrategy(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.String) is required to return null for JSP views and non-null for views authored in Facelets for JSF 2, this specification only applys to Facelets for JSF 2.

public StateManagementStrategy()
Method Detail

saveView

public abstract Object saveView(FacesContext context)

Return the state of the current view in an Object that implements Serializable. The default implementation must perform the following algorithm or its semantic equivalent.

  1. If the UIViewRoot of the current view is marked transient, return null immediately.

  2. Traverse the view and verify that each of the client ids are unique. Throw IllegalStateException if more than one client id are the same.

  3. Visit the tree using UIComponent.visitTree(javax.faces.component.visit.VisitContext, javax.faces.component.visit.VisitCallback). For each node, call StateHolder.saveState(javax.faces.context.FacesContext), saving the returned Object in a way such that it can be restored given only its client id. Special care must be taken to handle the case of components that were added or deleted programmatically during this lifecycle traversal, rather than by the VDL.

The implementation must ensure that the StateHolder.saveState(javax.faces.context.FacesContext) method is called for each node in the tree.

The data structure used to save the state obtained by executing the above algorithm must be Serializable, and all of the elements within the data structure must also be Serializable.

Parameters:
context - the FacesContext for this request.

restoreView

public abstract UIViewRoot restoreView(FacesContext context,
                                       String viewId,
                                       String renderKitId)

Restore the state of the view with information in the request. The default implementation must perform the following algorithm or its semantic equivalent.

  1. Build the view from the markup. For all components in the view that do not have an explicitly assigned id in the markup, the values of those ids must be the same as on an initial request for this view. This view will not contain any components programmatically added during the previous lifecycle run, and it will contain components that were programmatically deleted on the previous lifecycle run. Both of these cases must be handled.

  2. Call ResponseStateManager.getState(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.String) to obtain the data structure returned from the previous call to saveView(javax.faces.context.FacesContext).

  3. Visit the tree using UIComponent.visitTree(javax.faces.component.visit.VisitContext, javax.faces.component.visit.VisitCallback). For each node, call StateHolder.restoreState(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.Object), passing the state saved corresponding to the current client id.

  4. Ensure that any programmatically deleted components are removed.

  5. Ensure any programmatically added components are added.

The implementation must ensure that the StateHolder.restoreState(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.Object) method is called for each node in the tree, except for those that were programmatically deleted on the previous run through the lifecycle.

Parameters:
context - the FacesContext for this request
viewId - the view identifier for which the state should be restored
renderKitId - the render kit id for this state.
