How to enable CKEditor in PrimeFaces Extension

The CKEditor is not enabled by default when adding PrimeFaces Extension into PrimeFaces application.

There is only a textarea if the CKEditor is not enabled.

Thus, to enable the CKEditor, an additional jar needs to be included -- resources-ckeditor.jar
After added the resources-ckeditor.jar, the CKEditor displayed like below.

resources-ckeditor.jar could be downloaded here.
Besides, remember to check the correct version of PrimeFaces Extension using in the system to avoid any unexpected issues.

Update for PrimeFaces5.1
- List of library required to use CKEditor with PF5.1


Done!!
