6.2.3.  < a4j:loadScript > available since 3.0.0

The <a4j:loadScript> component allows to load scripts from alternative sources like a jar files, etc.

Table 6.31. a4j : loadScript attributes

Attribute Name Description
binding JSF: The attribute takes a value-binding expression for a component property of a backing bean
id JSF: Every component may have a unique id that is automatically created if omitted
rendered JSF: If "false", this component is not rendered
srcname of JavaScript resource to load.

Table 6.32. Component identification parameters


To create the simplest variant on a page use the following syntax:


<a4j:loadScript src="scripts/someScript.js"/>


import org.ajax4jsf.component.html.HtmlLoadScript;

HtmlLoadScript myScript = new HtmlLoadScript();

The main attribute of the <a4j:loadScript> is "src" , wich defines the context relative path to the script. The value of the attribute does not require a prefix of an application. Leading slash in the path means the root of the web context. It is also possible to use resource:/// prefix to access the script file using RichFaces resource framework.


<a4j:loadScript src="resource:///org/mycompany/assets/script/focus.js" />

The "src" attribute passses value to the getResourceURL() method of the ViewHandler of the application, The result is passed through the encodeResourceURL() method of the ExternalContext.
