f:facet

This Facelet makes possible to add a named UIComponent nested to another. This way, developers can freely implement a more complex Facelet component than a simple attribute does.

General Usage

f:facet is used in UIData (used by some components like h:dataTable) and by h:column. For custom developments, there are some methods available in UIComponentBase for obtaining those.
