AJAXify your Applications Using JSF 2.0

Picture Holder1

JavaServer Faces (JSF) is the standard Java framework for building Web applications. It emphasises on a component-centric approach to developing Java web user interfaces thereby simplifying and reducing the development cycle. Enterprise Java developers have long embraced ORM solutions that automatically generate relational database access code from the data model component in the application. JSF can be said to be the "ORM solution for the web layer". It automatically generates HTML, JavaScript and/or CSS code from well formed UI components. "Corporate developers" and Web designers will find that JSF development can be as simple as dragging and dropping user interface (UI) components onto a page, while "systems developers" will find that the rich and robust JSF API offers them unsurpassed power and programming flexibility. JSF also ensures that applications are well designed with greater maintainability by integrating the well established Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern into its architecture. Finally, since JSF is a Java standard developed through Java Community Process (JCP), development tools vendors are fully empowered to provide easy to use, visual, and productive develop environments for JavaServer Faces.

Although JSF 1.0 received complaints that revolved around the framework not being scalable enough, the positive side to this new framework was that it provided a stage for new innovations that could be integrated with JSF. For example, Facelets offered to be a powerful replacement for JavaServer Pages (JSP). Then came Rich Faces -- a slick JSF Ajax library, ICEFaces -- a novel approach to Ajax with JSF, Seam, Spring Faces, Woodstock components, JSF Templating and so on. All of those open source JSF projects were built by developers who needed the functionality they implemented.

The JSF 2.0 Expert Group standardised some of the best features from those open source projects and this clearly makes JSF 2.0 a vast improvement over its progenitor. JSF 2.0 comes preloaded with Facelets -- JSF 2's composite components and built-in support for Ajax.


The best-selling author of six popular books on Java and Web technology, Marty Hall, is coming this summer to India's biggest summit for the software developer ecosystem -- Great Indian Developer Summit -- to conduct a class on Integrated AJAX support in JSF 2.0. He will address the features that let JSF developers Ajaxify their applications with little or no JavaScript programming.

Marty Hall is an expert on JSP, servlets, Jakarta Struts, JSF, Ajax, GWT and Java programming. He has authored Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, More Servlets and JavaServer Pages and Core Web Programming. Core Servlets and JSP is the single most popular book on servlets and JSP internationally, was selected by amazon.com as one of the best five computer programming books of the year, has been the overall weekly #1 bestseller at fatbrain.com nine different times, and spent more than six months as one of the top 10 best-selling computer-related books at amazon.com and at Borders stores. He has given lectures and training courses in seven countries and dozens of US venues, including speaking five times at JavaOne. He also directs the Java and Web technology concentration areas in the Johns Hopkins University part-time graduate program in Computer Science. Marty is the president of coreservlets.com, a US-based consulting and training company focused on Ajax and Java EE.
