public abstract class Application
extends Object

Application represents a per-web-application singleton object where applications based on JavaServer Faces (or implementations wishing to provide extended functionality) can register application-wide singletons that provide functionality required by JavaServer Faces. Default implementations of each object are provided for cases where the application does not choose to customize the behavior.

The instance of Application is created by calling the getApplication() method of ApplicationFactory. Because this instance is shared, it must be implemented in a thread-safe manner.

Holds webapp-wide resources for a JSF application. There is a single one of these for a web application, accessable via
 FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getApplication()
 
In particular, this provides a factory for UIComponent objects. It also provides convenience methods for creating ValueBinding objects. See Javadoc of JSF Specification

Throws:
NullPointerException - if componentType or componentClass is null

addConverter

Throws:
NullPointerException - if componentType or componentClass is null

addDefaultValidatorId

public void addDefaultValidatorId(String validatorId)
Parameters:
validatorId -
Since:
2.0

addELContextListener

public void addELContextListener(javax.el.ELContextListener listener)

Provide a way for Faces applications to register an ELContextListener that will be notified on creation of ELContext instances.

An implementation is provided that throws UnsupportedOperationException so that users that decorate the Application continue to work.

Since:
1.2

addELResolver

public void addELResolver(javax.el.ELResolver resolver)

Cause an the argument resolver to be added to the resolver chain as specified in section 5.5.1 of the JavaServer Faces Specification.

It is not possible to remove an ELResolver registered with this method, once it has been registered.

It is illegal to register an ELResolver after the application has received any requests from the client. If an attempt is made to register a listener after that time, an IllegalStateException must be thrown. This restriction is in place to allow the JSP container to optimize for the common case where no additional ELResolvers are in the chain, aside from the standard ones. It is permissible to add ELResolvers before or after initialization to a CompositeELResolver that is already in the chain.

The default implementation throws UnsupportedOperationException and is provided for the sole purpose of not breaking existing applications that extend Application.

Since:
1.2

Create a new UIComponent subclass, using the mappings defined by previous calls to the addComponent method of this class.

Throws:
FacesException - if there is no mapping defined for the specified componentType, or if an instance of the specified type could not be created for any reason.

createComponent

Deprecated. 

Create an object which has an associating "binding" expression tying the component to a user property.

First the specified value-binding is evaluated; if it returns a non-null value then the component "already exists" and so the resulting value is simply returned.

Otherwise a new UIComponent instance is created using the specified componentType, and the new object stored via the provided value-binding before being returned.

Throws:
FacesException

createComponent

public UIComponent createComponent(javax.el.ValueExpression componentExpression,
                                   FacesContext context,

createConverter

public abstract Converter createConverter(Class<?> targetClass)

Instantiate and return a new Converter instance of the class that has registered itself as capable of performing conversions for objects of the specified type. If no such Converter class can be identified, return null.

To locate an appropriate Converter class, the following algorithm is performed, stopping as soon as an appropriate Converter class is found: Locate a Converter registered for the target class itself. Converter registered for interfaces that are implemented by the target class (directly or indirectly). Locate a Converter registered for the superclass (if any) of the target class, recursively working up the inheritance hierarchy.

If the Converter has a single argument constructor that accepts a Class, instantiate the Converter using that constructor, passing the argument targetClass as the sole argument. Otherwise, simply use the zero-argument constructor.

Parameters:
targetClass - - Target class for which to return a Converter
Throws:
FacesException - if the Converter cannot be created
NullPointerException - if targetClass is null

createConverter

public abstract Converter createConverter(String converterId)
Instantiate and return a new Converter instance of the class specified by a previous call to addConverter() for the specified converter id. If there is no such registration for this converter id, return null.

Parameters:
converterId - - The converter id for which to create and return a new Converter instance
Throws:
FacesException - if the Converter cannot be created
NullPointerException - if converterId is null

createMethodBinding

                                           throws ReferenceSyntaxException
Deprecated. 

Create an object which can be used to invoke an arbitrary method via an EL expression at a later time. This is similar to createValueBinding except that it can invoke an arbitrary method (with parameters) rather than just get/set a javabean property.

This is used to invoke ActionListener method, and ValueChangeListener methods.

Throws:
ReferenceSyntaxException

createValidator

public abstract Validator createValidator(String validatorId)
                                   throws FacesException
Instantiate and return a new Validator instance of the class specified by a previous call to addValidator() for the specified validator id.

public abstract ValueBinding createValueBinding(String ref)
                                         throws ReferenceSyntaxException
Deprecated. 

Create an object which can be used to invoke an arbitrary method via an EL expression at a later time. This is similar to createValueBinding except that it can invoke an arbitrary method (with parameters) rather than just get/set a javabean property.

This is used to invoke ActionListener method, and ValueChangeListener methods.

Throws:
ReferenceSyntaxException

evaluateExpressionGet

public <T> T evaluateExpressionGet(FacesContext context,
                                   String expression,
                                   Class<? extends T> expectedType)
                        throws javax.el.ELException

Get a value by evaluating an expression.

Call getExpressionFactory() then call ExpressionFactory.createValueExpression(javax.el.ELContext, java.lang.String, java.lang.Class) passing the argument expression and expectedType. Call FacesContext.getELContext() and pass it to ValueExpression.getValue(javax.el.ELContext), returning the result.

An implementation is provided that throws UnsupportedOperationException so that users that decorate the Application continue to work.

Throws:
javax.el.ELException

getActionListener

public abstract ActionListener getActionListener()

Return the default ActionListener to be registered for all ActionSource<3code> components in this appication. If not explicitly set, a default implementation must be provided that performs the following functions:

  • The processAction() method must first call FacesContext.renderResponse()in order to bypass any intervening lifecycle phases, once the method returns.
  • The processAction() method must next determine the logical outcome of this event, as follows:
    • If the originating component has a non-null action property, retrieve the MethodBinding from the property, and call invoke() on it. Convert the returned value (if any) to a String, and use it as the logical outcome.
    • Otherwise, the logical outcome is null.
  • The processAction() method must finally retrieve the NavigationHandler<3code> instance for this application and call NavigationHandler.handleNavigation(javax.faces.context.FacesContext, java.lang.String, java.lang.String) passing:
    • the FacesContext for the current request
    • If there is a MethodBinding instance for the action property of this component, the result of calling MethodBinding.getExpressionString() on it, null otherwise
    • the logical outcome as determined above

      Note that the specification for the default ActionListener contiues to call for the use of a deprecated property (action) and class (MethodBinding). Unfortunately, this is necessary because the default ActionListener must continue to work with components that do not implement ActionSource2, and only implement ActionSource.

Return the project stage for the currently running application instance. The default value is ProjectStage.Production

The implementation of this method must perform the following algorithm or an equivalent with the same end result to determine the value to return.

  • If the value has already been determined by a previous call to this method, simply return that value.
  • Look for a JNDI environment entry under the key given by the value of ProjectStage.PROJECT_STAGE_JNDI_NAME (return type of java.lang.String). If found, continue with the algorithm below, otherwise, look for an entry in the initParamMap of the ExternalContext from the current FacesContext with the key ProjectStage.PROJECT_STAGE_PARAM_NAME
  • If a value is found found, see if an enum constant can be obtained by calling ProjectStage.valueOf(), passing the value from the initParamMap. If this succeeds without exception, save the value and return it.
  • If not found, or any of the previous attempts to discover the enum constant value have failed, log a descriptive error message, assign the value as ProjectStage.Production and return it.
    • Since:
      2.0

getPropertyResolver

public abstract PropertyResolver getPropertyResolver()
Deprecated. 

Get the object used by the VariableResolver to read and write named properties on java beans, Arrays, Lists and Maps. This object is used by the ValueBinding implementation, and during the process of configuring "managed bean" properties.

If there are one or more listeners for events of the type represented by systemEventClass, call those listeners,passing source as the source of the event. The implementation should be as fast as possible in determining whether or not a listener for the given systemEventClass and source has been installed, and should return immediately once such a determination has been made. The implementation of publishEvent must honor the requirements stated in subscribeToEvent(java.lang.Class, java.lang.Class, javax.faces.event.SystemEventListener)

The default implementation must implement an algorithm semantically equivalent to the following to locate listener instances and to invoke them.

If the act of invoking the processListener method causes an AbortProcessingException to be thrown, processing of the listeners must be aborted.

Algorithm traverseListenerList: For each listener in the list,


removeELContextListener

public void removeELContextListener(javax.el.ELContextListener listener)

Remove the argument listener from the list of ELContextListeners. If listener is null, no exception is thrown and no action is performed. If listener is not in the list, no exception is thrown and no action is performed.

An implementation is provided that throws UnsupportedOperationException so that users that decorate the Application continue to work.

Parameters:
listener -

setActionListener

public abstract void setActionListener(ActionListener listener)
Set the default ActionListener to be registered for all ActionSource components.

Parameters:
listener - - The new default ActionListener
Throws:
NullPointerException - if listener is null

setDefaultLocale

public abstract void setDefaultLocale(Locale locale)
Set the default Locale for this application.

Parameters:
locale - - The new default Locale
Throws:
NullPointerException - if listener is null

setDefaultRenderKitId

public abstract void setDefaultRenderKitId(String renderKitId)
Return the renderKitId to be used for rendering this application. If not explicitly set, null is returned.

Parameters:
renderKitId -

setMessageBundle

public abstract void setMessageBundle(String bundle)
Set the fully qualified class name of the ResourceBundle to be used for JavaServer Faces messages for this application. See the JavaDocs for the java.util.ResourceBundle class for more information about the syntax for resource bundle names.

Parameters:
bundle - - Base name of the resource bundle to be used
Throws:
NullPointerException - if bundle is null

setNavigationHandler

public abstract void setNavigationHandler(NavigationHandler handler)
Set the NavigationHandler instance that will be passed the outcome returned by any invoked application action for this web application.

Parameters:
handler - - The new NavigationHandler instance

setPropertyResolver

public abstract void setPropertyResolver(PropertyResolver resolver)
Deprecated. 

The recommended way to affect the execution of the EL is to provide an element at the right place in the application configuration resources which will be considered in the normal course of expression evaluation. This method now will cause the argument resolver to be wrapped inside an implementation of ELResolver and exposed to the EL resolution system as if the user had called addELResolver(javax.el.ELResolver).


setResourceHandler

public void setResourceHandler(ResourceHandler resourceHandler)
Parameters:
resourceHandler -
Since:
2.0

setStateManager

public abstract void setStateManager(StateManager manager)
Set the StateManager instance that will be utilized during the Restore View and Render Response phases of the request processing lifecycle.

Parameters:
manager - The new StateManagerinstance
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if this method is called after at least one request has been processed by the Lifecycle instance for this application.
NullPointerException - if manager is null

setSupportedLocales

public abstract void setSupportedLocales(Collection<Locale> locales)
Set the Locale instances representing the supported Locales for this application.

Parameters:
locales - The set of supported Locales for this application
Throws:
NullPointerException - if the argument newLocales is null.

setVariableResolver

public abstract void setVariableResolver(VariableResolver resolver)
Deprecated. 

The recommended way to affect the execution of the EL is to provide an element at the right place in the application configuration resources which will be considered in the normal course of expression evaluation. This method now will cause the argument resolver to be wrapped inside an implementation of ELResolver and exposed to the EL resolution system as if the user had called addELResolver(javax.el.ELResolver).


setViewHandler

public abstract void setViewHandler(ViewHandler handler)
Set the ViewHandler instance that will be utilized during the Restore View and Render Response phases of the request processing lifecycle.

Parameters:
handler - - The new ViewHandler instance
Throws:
IllegalStateException - if this method is called after at least one request has been processed by the Lifecycle instance for this application.
NullPointerException - if handler is null
