Although I'm not involved in the talk selection process this year, I'm still paying attention to JavaOne.
The Call For Papers appears to be open now, through March 14th.
Be sure to read the Submission Criteria before submitting a proposal for a paper.
Progressive Enhancement is a philosophy of web design - start with simple pages, and build them up based on the capabilities of the browser viewing the page.
In a recent blog, commenters took me to task for a perceived IE 6 memory leak. It wasn't actually there (they were wrong), but in attempting to prove myself right, I found a couple of memory leaks under IE in JSF's Ajax support.
Just a short post to note that we've now shipped Mojarra 2.0.1. This version fixes a very serious bug when running on Tomcat.
I've had a few requests for request aggregation, ala RichFaces queues, in JSF 2. This was deliberately not included in JSF 2.0, but it will be considered for JSF 2.1. The reason why is simple - there was simply not very much time, once all the base Ajax work was completed, to add any additional features. However, adding this functionality yourself isn't actually very hard.
After years of effort, I'm delighted to echo Ryan Lubke's announcement that Mojarra 2.0 is final!
I've posted the slides for the talk that Andy Schwartz and I did at Oracle Open World up on Slideshare.
Unlike most of my blog posts, where I try to describe the easiest possible way to do things, in this posting, I'll instead go over a Java-based custom JSF component that responds to the Ajax tag. The reason being that there simply aren't any examples out there of how to do this, and at least two people have expressed interest in finding exactly out how this is done.
