Dynamically creating richfaces tabs

I am trying to create tabs dynamically using the exadel richfaces tab component.

Has anyone been able to do dynamic tabs with richfaces?

If so some sample code would be great.

OK, unfortunately, I do not have any sample code to show.

But, I do have some suggestions. Yes you can dynamically create richfaces components in code, and it would look exactly like how you code dynamic core JSF components, but with different classes.

Since Richfaces is open source you can actually download the code and see what the classes are named and packaged. Also the Richfaces website has examples,

Here are their Javadocs

And here is the doc for the Richfaces Tab, it even has code sample for dynamically building a tab.

I can't say the docs are 100% clear and have every attribute documented, but it gets you started.

I've successfully done it. I used JSTL tag <c:forEach> for the iteration.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
