Change Log

Specification Version: 1.2MR2
Implementation Version: 1.2_14

This release can be deployed to the Google Application Engine (GAE), however there are certain restrictions to doing so.

New context init parameters added for this release:

Paramter Name Description Default Value
com.sun.faces.IS_SAVE_BINDINGS_STATE This parameter, in conjuction with two facelets-specific parameters, makes it possible to achieve 30% - 60% memory savings for Facelet pages. This setting is only useful in conjuction with two parameters that direct the behavior of Facelets version 1.1.15 for JSF 1.2 (Available at <>.) The settings to enable these savings are as follows. <context-param> <param-name>com.sun.faces.IS_SAVE_BINDINGS_STATE</param-name> <param-value>false</param-value> </context-param> <context-param> <param-name>facelets.BUILD_BEFORE_RESTORE</param-name> <param-value>true</param-value> </context-param> <context-param> <param-name>facelets.RECREATE_VALUE_EXPRESSION_ON_BUILD_BEFORE_RESTORE</param-name> <param-value>true</param-value> </context-param> true
