Last I'd like to promote the requiredLabel functionality to PrimeFaces, with required label indicator and styling when validation fails.
Yes, this promotion sounds good. Looking forward to requiredLabel functionality in PrimeFaces !
I also had a scriptCollector once when I was working on Tomahawk Client side validations, frankly I don't have time to do it, but if you guys try this at extensions project if you have time, we can discuss further.
I'm in favour of async. script loading and execution. Tested LabJS, HeadJS and other libs. For instance HeadJS brings good performance http://headjs.com/test/script.html
(only 5 scripts are included) but with LabJS I had much better results. This feature is easy to implement in PrimeFaces / PrimeFaces Extensions and it can make scriptCollector useless because all scripts are always loaded / executed parallel (don't matter where you place them - in head or bottom). There are only 2-3 wait points, after jquery and primefaces core script. Most scripts are independent. This task is planned for 0.6. We should research yet if small scripts are loaded / executed faster than one big. I can imagine that there is a "golden mean" - not all scripts should be merged (what is true in PF Extensions). And sure, this feature should be enableable per configuration.
