Class FacesContextFactory

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public abstract class FacesContextFactory
    extends Object
    implements FacesWrapper<FacesContextFactory>

    FacesContextFactory is a factory object that creates (if needed) and returns new FacesContext instances, initialized for the processing of the specified request and response objects. Implementations may take advantage of the calls to the release() method of the allocated FacesContext instances to pool and recycle them, rather than creating a new instance every time.

    There must be one FacesContextFactory instance per web application that is utilizing Jakarta Server Faces. This instance can be acquired, in a portable manner, by calling:

     FacesContextFactory factory = (FacesContextFactory) FactoryFinder.getFactory(FactoryFinder.FACES_CONTEXT_FACTORY);

    Usage: extend this class and push the implementation being wrapped to the constructor and use getWrapped() to access the instance being wrapped.
