Implementing AJAX Components in the JWL Framework
- Open ajaxExternalRequestExample.jsp in Source mode.
- In Pane "Palette", click "Enhanced Faces Components" (make sure you are in a Web perspective).
- Drag and drop the Panel Group component from the palette to the page.
- Drag and drop the Text Output component from the palette to the panel that you added in Step 5. Set the value of the component to "External Page will be loaded here."
- Select the Panel Group and click Properties → AJAX. Click on "Allow Ajax Updates" and set Ajax request to "External".
- Click the <hx:ajaxExternalRequest> tag that was added in Step 7 and click Properties. Type "externalPage.faces" in the URL field.
- Run this page on the server (make sure you are running under Websphere 6.1 or higher).
- Test your code.
