      Description

      The features of this ResourceHandler include the following:

      • relative paths between resources (css files referencing images
        without using #resource['..'])
      • caching resources in the client (disabled if ProjectStage == Development)
      • GZIP compression and local cache in tmp dir (disabled if
        ProjectStage == Development)
      • i18n (supporting country code and language).

      In addition, it does NOT support ValueExpressions in resource files
      for performance reasons.

      The most important feature, in my opinion, is how the resource URL is
      built, e.g. /faces/javax.faces.resource/de_AT/$/some/library/$/my/resource.css

      ... because it permits resources referencing other resources without
      #

      {resource['...']}

      (e.g. css files referencing images or other css
      files). With the standard ResourceHandler this is 1) annoying if you
      have to change the files you get from your designer and 2) a
      performance bottleneck, because resources with ValueExpressions are
      not cached and also regenerated for each request.

      Furthermore, the resource URL contains the locale and thus you have no
      problems with cached resources if a users changes the locale, because
      he/she will get a new URL and thus a new resource (the right one).

        Yes, even better, so it is just required to add it on the classpath.

        IMO it's better to keep this code in an own module, so that we can keep it lightweight and also deliver the faces-config with the module!

        cool stuff! a good candidate to put on myfaces-commons-utils, so the user can just add the resource handler on its webapp faces-config.
