Rationalize configuration properties #22

I had a quick look at the code and I can see a lot of different prefixes for the configuration. A few thoughts:

  • Maybe it would be nicer if all options were gathered under a common prefix (something like jsf if that makes sense?)
  • If splitting the configuration by components is a good thing, maybe we should use the name of the component rather than a package name. This is a bit unusual compared to other libraries.

What do you think?

Current implementation uses the components (jsf api, mojarra, primefaces and omnifaces) context-param attributes, because it could help migration between traditional web.xml configuration to spring boot.

However, I agree that all of these properties should follow the same jsf namespace, creating subdomains for each component when necessary. The configuration of components should use the name of each component also.

So, jsf namespace should be:

  • jsf to standard jsf properties instead of javax.faces. For example javax.faces.PROJECT_STATE should be jsf.PROJECT_STATE
  • jsf.mojarra to mojarra properties instead of com.sun.faces.
  • jsf.omnifaces to omnifaces properties instead of omnifaces.
  • jsf.primefaces to primefaces properties instead of primefaces. For example, primefaces.THEME should be jsf.primefaces.THEME

More helpful suggestions @snicoll ?
