JSF and MyFaces

I am going to develop a new site with JSF. I want to keep the code very clean and like a lot of the features. I am also checking out Apache's MyFaces. Has anyone used it in production? If so, I'd love to hear the pros and cons. I am also interested in the learning curve for both JSF and MyFaces. I will be blogging more about the quality of these technologies.

Practices of an Agile Developer

I recently attended a XPWDC meeting in which Practices of an Agile Developer: Working in the Real World (Pragmatic Programmers) was discussed. It looks like an interesting follow-up to the Pragmatic Programmer series. If you have read it please leave a comment. I believe The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master and Software Craftsmanship: The New Imperative are both wonderful books and will be reading the Practices of an Agile Developer ASAP.

Testing DataGrid inline editing

Has anyone figured out how to test inline editing of a DataGrid with NUnitAsp? It appears that there is now aspid to reference the edit button on each row.

Just wanted to mention Thycotic.TddStarterKit from Thycotic Software Ltd. From the site:

Thycotic.TddStarterKit is a collection of useful tools and extensions for NUnit and NUnitAsp that solve some of our commonly encountered problems on TDD projects. It includes:

One of the many useful methods I found was that instead of writing:

Assert(Browser.CurrentPageText.IndexOf(expression) != -1);

I can now write:

AssertContains(Browser.CurrentPageText, expression);

NUnitAsp Browser Headers?

For many online applications it is necessary to set headers in the client. Has anyone figured out how to do this with the NUnitAsp Browser?

Looks like the HttpClient class has only private methods for getting at the Request (which is where the headers are). Unfortunately many corporations need standard test harnesses so it isn't an option for me to just rewrite NUnitASP.
