Adding UI Facets into ADF Page Template Based on Facelets Type

If you will try to add UI Facet into ADF Page Template based on Facelets type (JDeveloper 11g R2) - you may get into trouble of accessing UI Facet from consuming fragment/page.

Here is what I mean - assume there is a template created based on Facelets type:


This template contains UI Facet - we drag and drop it from Component Palette:


Facelets type fragment is created based on Facelets template:


We try to access UI Facet inside fragment - but its not accessible:


Declared UI Facet is not accessible even from Structure window:


This is because of error in ADF Template - related to Facet definition:


JDeveloper creates (when you drag and drop Facet component) invalid Facet definition for ADF Template based on Facelets (it works well for JSP XML template). Facet definition error - remove wrong facet definition manually:


We can workaround this, by going into Facet Definitions section and manually defining facet for the template with the same name - content:


As you can see, facet definition is correct now and is based on afc tag:


Facet is available from consuming fragment:
