Using multiple ELResolvers with CompositeELResolver in JSF

Imagine the case where you have a JSF application that’s already using some custom ELResolver, but you want to get all the benefits of spring and want to have the SpringBeanFacesELResolver. Well, it’s rather simple:

public class MyCompositeELResolver extends javax.el.CompositeELResolver 

    public class MyCompositeELREsolver() {
         add(new YourCustomELResolver());
         add(new SpringBeanFacesELResolver());

Note that the resolvers are ‘consulted’ in the order they are added.

Now just define your newly created composite resolver as in faces-config.xml.
