A recent user question, which has been repeated enough times to warrant a blog posting.
In my last blog entry, I went over getting a YUI widget working on JSF2. This time, let's go over what's required to move that widget into a JSF component.
If you're not developing JSF with third party component libraries, you're really missing out on the best part of JSF. But there's lots of Ajax widgets out there, which contain all kinds of useful functionality.

Just a quick note that we've now added automatic compression of the jsf.js file served by JSF 2.
Not too long ago, I heard someone complain that the JSF tutorial wasn't ready yet. Now, that's not surprising - the tutorial writing process (for that matter, the book writing process) doesn't actually start until the spec is more or less final, and the implementation is at least Beta (meaning feature complete).
But that raises the question: Suppose you're eager to get started.
