Hi Thiago, 

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, I know that the correct subject would be “adding components dynamically to 
a page” and not the “create” term. I develop the solution bellow that works 
fine for me:

<div class="row">
        <t:loop source="widgets" value="widget">
                <t:delegate to="dynamicWidget"/>
        <t:block t:id="widgetsDefinition">
                        <t:widgets.widgetTest1 t:id="widget1" />
                        <t:widgets.widgetTest2 t:id="widget2" />

And my .java:

public Object getDynamicWidget(){
                WidgetFacade widgetFacade = (WidgetFacade) 
componentSource.getComponent("Index:" + widget.getWidget().getComponentId());
                Map<String, String> configuration = new HashMap<String, 
                for(WidgetConfiguration conf : widget.getConfigurations()){
                return widgetFacade;

I wanted to skip the block “widgetsDefinition” but it’s not possible. 

Thank you

Best regards
