Get External Content <hx:ajaxExternalRequest>

<hx:ajaxExternalRequest> defines how content from a different page replaces the content of the parent tag. Content is retrieved using HTTP GET method. This tag is useful when you want to place one JSP into the content of another one.

The following steps describe how this tag is used:

  1. Create a new JSF page, ajaxExternalRequestExample.jsp, by clicking File → New → Other → Web → Web Page.
  2. Create a new JSF page, externalPage.jsp, by clicking File → New → Other → Web → Web Page. In the page, type "External Page is Loaded!".
