Navigation diagrams provide additional support for managing the rules of navigation between the pages of your application. In certain cases, they are a useful alternative to editing the contents of faces-config.xml.
With faces-config.xml open in the editor, use the Navigation tab to view and draw the diagram. Your drawing is automatically synchronized with the contents of faces-config.xml (and vice versa).
For detailed information about the available controls and context menu commands, see Diagram Toolbar and Context Menu.
- Open faces-config.xml in the editor.
- Click the Navigation tab.
- Drag the required pages (one by one) from the Project tool window onto the Navigation tab.
- Use the mouse to draw the navigation lines between the pages. As a result, the corresponding navigation rules are created. (Switch onto the Text tab to see those rules.)
