Org Charts and Influence

Posted by edburns on April 21, 2009 at 9:52 AM PDT

Nearly every work related thought I have now ends with, “but

Public Access to JSF 2.0 JSR-314-EG Discussions Now Available

Mojarra use on the JSF EG

Posted by edburns on December 11, 2008 at 8:49 AM PST

As I mention in every introductory JSF talk I give, Sun’s href="">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.
