Hi there,
I have been programming with JSF (1.2) for a little while, and wonder if the following is possible:

I want to use a JSF template where I put references to "any" backing bean which will holds an instance of a specific type, let's say ADDRESS for example.

This would be extremely useful because I could have defined one single template for the address type which I would call from the container files und update ADDRESS fields like "${[ANY_BACKINGBEAN_PARAMETER].address.zipCode}". I know I still have the solution of creating an AddressBackingBean and reference it from the template (which I actually do), but then I must be caring for updating the reference throughout the application, which means handling the coordination of bean initialization in the PhaseListener when accessing a specific page.

The whole thing involves considerable tasks in coordinating and assigning the right references at the right time.

Hope the issue is clear. From my understanging I guess that a real template framework should enable this feature. However I still haven't figured out how to do this in JSF. Perhaps available in JSF 2.0?

Many thanks.

Carlos.
