    Where can I download just the BluePrints components for JSF?

    843833
      I discovered the rating component that exists within BluePrints. I'm searching for a place to download this library without having to download the full J2EE package. Is this possible? Is there a jar and tld I can download and use in my JSF application to get access to this component?

          It should be available in the bpcatalog. Look for it in the bpcatalog.dev.java.net project.
          This blog entry touches upon these components

          Also check out the live bpcatalog viewer app hosted on a sun site with these components :

          The rating component is located in the BluePrints AJAX Components accordion tab.

            I also discovered the RssBar Component that I would like to use in my JSF web application.

            - Is there any possibility in the future that these components can be built/consumed using maven ?
            - Is there any effort to update the code to use a more recent version of the 3rd party libs ?
            - I have started writing a facelet taglib, will a future version of components support facelets ?

            IMHO all JSF components should be as easy to use as:

            1. include in your pom.xml

            <dependency>
            <groupId>com.sun.javaee.blueprints</groupId>
            <artifactId>components</artifactId>
            <version>0.8</version>
            </dependency>

            2. Update your xhtml
            <ui:rssBar url="https://blueprints.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectRSS?type=news"
            itemCount="4"
            title="News from BlurPrints"
            backgroundImage="default"
            fontSize="14"
            speed="3000"
            color="#00ffff"
            hoverColor="="#ff00ff">
            </ui:rssBar>
