Description Winston Prakash 2007-11-01 00:58:22 UTC
The idea behind this feature request is to provide functionality to fill in the glaring gap in the Visual Web
Application development, which is clearly a low hanging fruit but never addressed before. Currently users create a
Viusal Web JSF page using New -> Visual JSF page. This creates the "boring" empty page with no page layouts. It is up to
the users to create their page layouts. Users tend to create Page Layout using external tools like Dream Weaver and
import them in to VW pages. Unfortunately, page layouts created using these external tools require lots of hand crafting
to fit in the VW design paradigm. So, it would be nice to provide some predefined page layouts for the users to select
when they create their pages.

In NetBeans 6.8, this is now possible for JSF 2.0 development, via facelets templates. Works for non-visual JSF development.
