Is a Servlet 3.0 implementation required for Primefaces?

If so, what features are used for what?

Another way of putting it is can you use Primefaces 2.2 with Tomcat 6, which doesn't have Servlet 3.0.

hi Allan

in my application I use with servlet 2.5 (jboss 5.1)

There was a time I've tested it with tomcat 6 and had no problems
simply add the JSF libraries (in my case I prefer mojarra 2.0.3) and the PrimeFaces.jar

Thanks, chaseven.

I read in another thread that Tomcat 6 needed additional configuration in the web.xml to allow Primefaces to work. Did you run into that and were there any other issues?

This is the thread to which I refer.

PrimeFaces and JSF 2.0 requires Servlet 2.5 at least.

PrimeFaces does not require any configuration as of 2.2.

Here are my web.xml:

Code: Select all

	<servlet>
		<servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
		<servlet-class>javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet</servlet-class>
		<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
	</servlet>
	<servlet-mapping>
		<servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
		<url-pattern>*.xhtml</url-pattern>
	</servlet-mapping>

	<servlet>
		<servlet-name>Resource Servlet</servlet-name>
		<servlet-class>org.primefaces.resource.ResourceServlet</servlet-class>
	</servlet>
	<servlet-mapping>
		<servlet-name>Resource Servlet</servlet-name>
		<url-pattern>/primefaces_resource/*</url-pattern>
	</servlet-mapping>
