Create a Common Facelets Tag Library: Share it across projects

Tutorial – Step By Step

If you’ve learned to use JSF Facelets to create on-the-fly, simple components using XHTML, then you probably have a whole slew of custom components that need to be copied between various projects, and can be somewhat painful to keep up to date. You may have tried to move them into a jar file, but Facelets can’t find them there (without some help from us.)
