I will be presnting a live, gratis, and open webinar about
what’s new in JSF 2.0 next Thursday 14 May 2009 at this time:

Nearly every work related thought I have now ends with, “but
this could change because of the Oracle thing.” The subject of
this blog is one of them. While riding the ICE train to Mainz after

Apache MyFaces. I recently took a poll of the JSF 2.0 expert group
members regarding their use of Mojarra.
##jsf pal Rogério Pereira has a successful and well peopled
Portugese language JSF user group based in Brazil. At the moment the
group is not specific to any physical location in Brazil, but perhaps
in-person meetings can evolve in the future. It’s a great place to
share skills and stories.
