Updated: app servers added to query
Rather than spend lots of time researching this, I thought I'd try my hand at asking a question of the blogosphere.
I'd like to know what developer tools and application servers are using which JSF implementation.
Here is an ultra-quick blog entry sharing something in JSF 1.2 about
which I'm not sure many people are aware. Thanks to the unified EL, it
is possible to refer to JSF managed beans and other JSF concepts using
plain old JSP expressions in the page. For example, let's say you have
a JSF app that is a bookstore.
The content and ideas in this blog entry are taken from my upcoming
McGraw Hill Osborne book href="http://purl.oclc.org/NET/jsfbook/">JavaServer Faces: The Complete
Reference, which I am co-authoring with href="http://www.jroller.com/page/cschalk">Chris Schalk. In the
book, we have a chapter on Securing JavaServer Faces applications.
With the demise of the Sun Engineer's Sandbox, my content posted there has disappeared. Thankfully I saved a copy. Thanks to srcerer on the ##jsf chat room on freenode for reminding me to repost this.
The saga of Oracle ADF Faces on the Java EE SDK continues. In our
last installment, href="http://sfjsf.blogspot.com/2006/02/adf-faces-and-jsf-12.html">Adam
Winer explained why ADF Faces won't run on Glassfish. I'm happy to
report that after some minor tweaks to Sun's JSF implementation in the
Java EE SDK, I think I have it running.
I'm pleased to announce another revision of the Java EE Web Tier.
With the help of
most excellent href="https://maven-javanet-plugin.dev.java.net/nonav/maven/install.html">maven
java.net plugin, and several iterations of trial and error, we now
have the JSF 1.2 api and impl jars available under the same license as
Glassfish on href="https://maven-repository.dev.java.net/nonav/re
As mentioned in an
blog, Glassfish has successfully run Oracle's ADF Faces components.
If you look in the comments, though, there were some bugs that prevent
it from running in the latest Glassfish, but happily these have now been
It was pointed out to me on the ##jsf channel on irc.freenode.net
that we didn't have a link to the source snapshot for the JSF 1.1_01
This blog just collects some bugs I've filed on NetBeans and the
fixes and workarounds they have. Also, I want to take this opportunity
to say that the netbeans team is incredibly responsive to bug reports,
especially finding and marking duplicates. Us users really appreciate
it. Personally, as a member of Sun's JSF team, you are an inspiration
for me to be more responsive to my bugs!
