Adding JSF components programmatically

I've had to search a lot through internet in order to discover how to create JSF components programmaticaly. At the end, I didn't have to use it in the application I was creating, but I thought it worth to keep the research in some way.

	// rendered panel
	private HtmlPanelGrid grid = null; 
	//private List<UIComponent> sections;
	private int sectionsCounter; 
 
	public borrado_20110603_SectionsCollection()
	{
		sectionsCounter = 0; 
		//sections = new ArrayList<UIComponent>();
	}
 
	public void setComponent( HtmlPanelGrid newGrid )
	{
		grid = newGrid;
	}
 
	public HtmlPanelGrid getComponent()
	{
		Application app =  FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getApplication();
 
		grid = (HtmlPanelGrid) app.createComponent(HtmlPanelGrid.COMPONENT_TYPE);
		grid.setColumns(1);
		grid.setId("sections");
 
		return grid;
	}
 
	public void addSection(AuditSkel skel)
	{
 
		Section s1;
 
		skel.addSection();
 
		s1 = new Section(skel, sectionsCounter);
 
		grid.getChildren().add( s1.getGrid() );
 
		sectionsCounter++; 
 
	} // addSection
