      Description

      There is no easy way to get result from rendering of JSF page without going to
      browser.
      It would be very useful to have possibility directly initiate rendering of the
      page and get corresponding result from it. Ability to use this approach will
      allow developers easily adapt JSF as powerful template engine. In my case we
      are using JSF as template engine to render HL7 messages. Also this functionality
      would be helpful for testing purposes. For example "FacesTester" project
      included some additional code just because there are a needs to get result of
      rendering directly in java code.

          Wow, this would be a killer feature. We need it too for exporting a page to PDF. Currently we use PhantomJS (server-side browser) to call an JSF page to be exported via URL. By means of this new feature we could get an JSF page as a string and pass it direct to PhantomJS without the HTTP overhead.

          As well as Seamy stuff like
          simpleBPM
          simpleSecuirty

          Think:
          s/simeple/seam4/g

          No promises though.

          Set priority to baseline ahead of JSF 2.3 triage. Priorities will be assigned accurately after this exercise.
