The annual ritual of JavaOne paper submissions and reviews has come
to an end. Some are chosen, many more are not. Even though I’ve been
on the review team for the “Next Generation Web” track for
the past three years, only one of the five talks I submitted was
accepted, and I bet you can guess which one.
Thanks to Jacob Hookom and Kin-Man Chung, I'm happy to report that EL
method invocation will be present for EE 6. To read more, please see
Kin Man's blog entry.

Back in August, I had a contest to write an
stylesheet to format the java.net issues. I did announce the
winner, but I didn't share the software. Here it is.
Format your java.net issues as XML, save it to a file.
JSF 2.0 Public Review Ballot Starts Tomorrow
As I mention in every introductory JSF talk I give, Sun’s
href="https://javaserverfaces.dev.java.net/">Mojarra is the most
popular implementation of JSF. Mojarra provides the JSF implementation
for every major app server vendor except for Apache Geronimo, which uses
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.
During JSF 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2, we relied on the old
application to do end-to-end testing of the implementation. I was never
satisfied with how this simple app exercised the code, and have been
wanting to get a more real-world application.
Emmanuel Bernard has been doing a fine job running JSR-303 Bean
Validation. I've met with him on a number of occasions and it's always
been a pleasant, productive and professional encounter. It was with
great interest that I read the JSF2.0 proposal appendix in the
soon-to-be-released JSR-303 draft.
One aspect of Glassfish being the premiere Java EE 5 Application server is its ability to run all of the current popular software for the Enterprise. One such package is the MyFaces JSF implementation. Although Mojarra is built into Glassfish, people have successfully run MyFaces on Glassfish. If anyone has done so, could you write a blog about it and share it with the world?
We're still plugging along on getting Facelets fully specified so a
clean-room implementation can be done of it. Today I've been expanding
the charter of a new class,
is vended from the
PageDeclarationLanguage (PDL) is the starting point for all
things specific to the way the view is described.
