      Components available as part of the RichFaces Tools feature are now available individually. Common, JST, JSF and VPE are all now available as individual components or as a RichFaces Tools bundle. For a user, if you only wish to use JSF Tools, you no longer need to also have Common, JST and VPE tooling components installed.

    Description

      Right now, if you need JSF tools you have to install RichFaces feature that bundles a set of components: JST, JSF, VPE, ...
      It can confuse users.
      Here is the story that illustrates the possible problem:
      Jose Freitas (Seam 3 team) complained that code completion is not working for seam faces tags. It turned out that he installed CDI, Maven, AS, Hibernate tools but didn't install RichFaces feature. He just didn't realize that the RichFaces feature is much more than just RichFaces support. He didn't install it and as a result he didn't get JSF Tools. So JSF code completion didn't work for his project.

      It would be good to have a separate JSF Tools feature that requires only reasonable dependencies (such as Common, JST) and doesn't require VPE.
