public abstract class NavigationHandler extends Object
A NavigationHandler is passed the outcome string returned by an application action invoked for this application, and will use this (along with related state information) to choose the view to be displayed next.
A default implementation of
NavigationHandler must be
provided by the JSF implementation, which will be utilized unless
setNavigationHandler() is called to establish a different one.
This default instance will compare the view identifier of the current
view, the specified action binding, and the specified outcome against
any navigation rules provided in
If a navigation case matches, the current view will be changed by a call
FacesContext.setViewRoot(). Note that a
outcome value will never match any navigation rule, so it can be used as an
indicator that the current view should be redisplayed.
