Hi there,

I think you meant to send this to the JSF users group.

regards,

I have been following the JSF 2.2 specification closely, nice work.  I
have a question regarding the final implementation of Faces Flow.  It
seems that the flow definition may be added to the faces-config.xml
file, within the<flow-definition>  elements as follows:

<flow-definition id="exampleFlow">
....
</flow-definition>

This works well under the current builds.  However, as mentioned in
some previous articles and within the spec itself, the flow definition
can also reside within a file that is named
/WEB-INF/<flowName>-flow.xml OR /<flowName>/<flowName>-flow.xml, where
<flowName>  is the name of the flow.  When using this technique, does
the flow definition XML file still follow the following format under
the final release of the specification?
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html
xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";
       xmlns:h="http://xmlns.jcp.org/jsf/html";
       xmlns:f="http://xmlns.jcp.org/jsf/core";
       xmlns:j="http://xmlns.jcp.org/jsf/flow";>    
     <f:metadata>
        <j:faces-flow-definition>
        <j:flow-return id="returnFromB">        
        ....

        </j:faces-flow-definition>
     </f:metadata>

If so, I am unable to get my examples working when specifying a flow
definition within an XML file named after the flow, such as
exampleFlow2-flow.xml.  Also, the latest builds of Netbeans 7.3 for EE
7 do not seem to recognize the http://xmlns.jcp.org/jsf/flow URI.

Thanks in advance for your help.  I am trying to document the proper
usage of the faces flow feature and I want to ensure that I am not
incorrect.

Best
