Provide a FishEye toolbar component from the DOJO toolkit

A navigation menu/toolbar with a nice mouse-over effect, similar to the Mac OS X Dock. It is actually a JSF implementation of the Fisheye List widget from the Dojo Toolkit.

The component makes use of the Tomahawk navigation framework, so the menu items can be added using t:navigationMenuItem child components.
