never used tomahawk datatable...but on h:dataTable and rich:dataTable, you can create an action using a command button, command link, or whatever you like just like you do when you are outside a data table.
Tomahawk's datatable is an extension to the basic (core) JSF datatable - one extra feature it offers is the support for multi-page tables.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
