Gracelets: Beta 1.2.8

A groovy plugin for the Facelets/JSF framework. Tightly integrated with JBoss Seam, allowing one to produce a complete view including data models, factories and the like inside of a single groovy script.

No more NodeTranslators (if you have been following this from the beginning)
Converters and Validators have been added to the component libraries and can also be defined right inside the view script.
A new experimental Wicket extension.
Also a JPA extension.

From this point on, the focus will be testing and stability so as to hopefully release a stable version within the next month or two.

Alot of fixes and a little overhaul of the core design. Will allow for using groovy source files beyond just scripts, which is where the wicket extension was able to plug in. But this framework can be extended easily to make certain classes (input streams, output streams, regular classes as web services, and so forth) to be treated by special handlers giving them special functionality and support.
