1. Feature Overview:
Feature Id: 
a. Name of Feature: Include Apache MyFaces (1.1.4 preferable) in RHEL
b. Feature Description
Include Apache MyFaces package in RHEL5.x release. V1.1.4 is preferable, but we can also work with
V1.1.5, if Red Hat prefer.

Delivery Mechanism: Direct from community
Category: Systems management
Request Type: Package - Feature from Upstream

Sponsor Priority 2
f. Severity: Medium

3. Business Case
This file is needed to compile and use the WBEM-SMT client originally submitted under DevTrack
200842 for RHEL5.1. If this file is not included in RHEL5.1, customers will have the locate the
necessary files and install them in the relevant locations. This will lead to customer
dis-satisfaction and the increased chance for support calls if customers use the wrong files in the
wrong locations. This request is one of four related release features - IBM DevTrack 201115 - 201118.

Add additional comments from eSDT mtg
JavaServer(tm) Faces is the well-established standard for web-development frameworks in Java. The standard is based on the MVC paradigm, but is additionally to most web-frameworks also component-based and event-oriented.
Provides an implementation of the JavaServer Faces 1.1 (JSF 1.1) specification.
Two libraries: myfaces-api.jar and myfaces-impl.jar, are deployed together with your code to form a JSF web application.
We currently include RichFaces and including MyFaces will require us to support two implementations of similar functionality. We are therefore not able to entertain this request at this time.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
