In the previous blog entry a single resource library contract was applied. However did you know that you can stack them? We are going to add the following 3 layout contracts, desktop, tablet and phone. The desktop contract <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?><!DOCTYPE html><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"   ...

In JSF 2.2 you have the ability to define a resource library contract so you can deliver a different experience on the basis of which user visits your website. This blog entry shows you how you can switch between a resource library contract on the basis of an EL expression. To show this off we define 2 CSS styles, blue and red. The blue style body {    background-color: blue;} The...

Well it is fairly easy, see the 2 steps below! 1. Create your renderer 2. Register it Creating your renderer package org.glassfish.jsf.overrideRenderer;import java.io.IOException;import javax.faces.component.UIComponent;...

In a previous blog entry I blogged about stateless JSF before, this time I will include the entire page so you can see how silly simple it actually is. And you can also go directly to Subversion to get the sample there. The entirely stateless page <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?><!DOCTYPE html><html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml...

Say you have a problem with how a particular component renders and you want to do it a bit different. Well in JSF that is not a problem there is a hook-in that you can use to override how a renderer does it rendering. The sample below shows you how to do it. You will have to do 2 things. 1. Register your own renderer for a given renderer type 2. Implement your own renderer. First lets make sure...

If you read the blog entry about migrating to @Named annotation you might wonder how you would migrate your @ManagedProperty annotations. Since CDI is a specification on its own, it does not deal with JSF specific artifacts. However with very little work you can have a very similar setup. First we define our own custom annotation @ManagedProperty package test.managedproperty;import java.lang....

Since Mojarra is available as a standalone JAR you can opt to update your Glassfish installation with a newer version. How would you do that? Well it is simple. Make sure your Glassfish container is not running Grab the latest JAR from http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/glassfish/javax.faces/ Replace the javax.faces.jar in the modules directory of your Glassfish directory with the downloaded JAR...

Sometimes when you are working with JSF you might need to understand what is happening beneath the covers. It could be because you think a component is misbehaving and you want to make sure that is the case before you file a bug. To facilitate this you can turn the logging up and in Mojarra there are several loggers that you can use. The following is a non-exhaustive list: application...

If you are having a problem with your JPA queries and you are trying to understand what SQL queries it actually sends below the covers you can configure the JPA runtime to show the actual SQL statements it sends over. How? Well for EclipseLink you would add the following to your persistence.xml file.   <property name="eclipselink.logging.level" value="FINEST"/>...

Developing RESTful Services with JAX-RS 2.0, WebSockets, and JSON is the new book which Masoud Kalali and I have worked on and recently published. As the technology landscape moves focus towards smaller devices, the need for building scalable, flexible, lightweight, and real-time communications-based applications grows. HTML 5 and Java EE 7 provide a new synthesis of technologies that...

I’ve been talking about JSF 2.2 new features out on the conference trail for quite a while now. I usually talk about the big three: Flows, Resource Library Contracts, and HTML5 Friendly Markup. This blog entry talks about another, mostly behind-the-scenes, feature: ClientWindow. I introduce the concept of ClientWindow and give a simple example illustrating one solution to a common web...
