I was writing this expression in a rendered attribute: #{facesContext.application.projectStage == 'Development'}. Then I remembered Faces#isDevelopment() and wondered if OmniFaces also offered a way to easily access this in EL. Could not find anything. In my project I'll be creating a bean to expose Faces#isDevelopment().

One way is <o:importFunctions>.

<o:importFunctions type="org.omnifaces.util.Faces" />
<h:someComponent rendered="#{Faces:isDevelopment()}" />

I however do agree that something like a #{faces.development} would be useful. This is definitely possible with a custom ELResolver which delegates further to Faces utility class, so I'll keep the issue open.

Thanks! +1 for o:importFuctions I'll be using that.

#{faces} is now available with among others #{faces.development}.

It's available in today's latest 2.6-SNAPSHOT
