About Facelets Annotation Deployment

The facelets annotation project's goal is to relieve developers the burden of maintaining taglib.xml files. Instead, the code with this project allows developers to register validators, converters, functions and components with the facelets compiler. It also supports the registering of these components with the faces application.

Version Note

As this project is just being released without any feedback yet, it is in a "alpha" stage. This is not a comment on quality, but rather the state of the API. Until the project reaches at least version 1.x.x, the API should be considered unstable.

With version numbers, this project follows the standard maven version numbering scheme.
