Static Jsf Pages

It is possible to use Jsf (xhtml) pages outside of a normal User Dialogs. If you want a such static Jsf page you can create them directly in the webContent folder. The concept is mostly the same as in Html Dialogs described. The special part about this approach is, that those pages run on an application and process model but without a process or task.

Because this pages are outside of a normal User Dialogs structure, it is not possible to access any ivy data or logic classes. If you want logic and data you need to implement ManagedBeans (same way as known from Managed Beans) which will provide this stuff for you.


It is not possible to use Html Dialog Component inside of static Jsf pages. Even if you use a static Jsf page as workflow end page, it is not possible to access the case and task context.

Access static pages


To access this pages with a browser you need to call http://<servername>:<port>/ivy/faces/view/<application name>/<process model>/<xhtml file in webContent>. Assumed you have a xhtml page with the name test.xhtml in your webContent folder, an <application name> App and a <processmodel> PM, you can call the URL http://localhost:8081/ivy/faces/view/App/PM/test.xhtml to get your static JSF page.


If you want to call this static Jsf pages from a ivy process, you can implement a End Page, Task Switch Gateway or Task Switch Event element and choose the xhtml file as end page. For this approach exists an example in the HtmlDialogDemos.
