Hi Kate,

To create a PhaseListener

1) Implement javax.faces.event.PhaseListener
2) add functionality to the methods beforePhase(PhaseEvent phaseEvent) and afterPhase(PhaseEvent phaseEvent).

Without other details, I am assuming you wouldnt need to add any code to beforePhase(). An empty method should be enough.

In afterPhase(), get the FacesContext object from PhaseEvent. Further get the viewId from the context and do your bit of magic on it.

Hope this gets you started.
I agree. Here's the link:
