Max Andersen commented on JBSEAM-1484:

btw. the reason why it doesn't work in jboss tools is because you suddenly are using absolute paths and we don't know where the root are for plain java projects (that is an limitation we will work on fixing in upcoming versions, but just so you know ;)

Besides hard coded absolute path is evil in my book too, so what is actually the best way to avoid this ? Is it by having something like #{templatelayout.dir}/template.xhtml instead and allow you the greatest flexibility ? (this is somethng we also would need to add support for in the tools to resolve that variable - but all doable)

> Seam-gen currently creates facelets xhtml pages having ui-composition element with template attribute specified relative to page itself. This is OK if all pages are stored in the root folder of web application. However, when you start refactoring and moving pages to separate folders you need to update template attribute in all ui-composition elements in moved pages. 
> So, I think seam-gen should generate pages with ui-composition element which references template relative to web-app, and not the page. In other words instead of:
> <ui:composition ...   template="layout/template.xhtml">
> it should be:
> <ui:composition ...   template="/layout/template.xhtml">
> With this change, you can move xhtml pages to any folder and template would still be referenced correctly.
