I love working with a broad range of technologies. At work it is mostly JavaEE and JavaSE technologies, as a hobby I do some Java on devices.

MVC 1.0 JSR is on its way!

Posted by mriem on September 25, 2014 at 12:07 AM PDT

The ballot for MVC 1.0 has passed and we have approval. So now it is time to move forward with EG formation and from there it is off to work!

Since we are a new JSR we do not have all our infrastructure setup yet.

Please be patient we will get everything setup soon.

Note as I am attending JavaOne it might not happen until after JavaOne ;)

Enjoy!

JSF 2.3 EG is on its way!

And we are on our way for JSF 2.3 now.

The kick off email to the JSF 2.3 EG has been sent! You can see the publicly available announcement on the spec users list, see https://java.net/projects/javaserverfaces-spec-public/lists/users/archiv...

Presenting at JavaOne 2014

Posted by mriem on September 22, 2014 at 7:08 AM PDT

Yes, it is actually happening, a bit late to the game but I am in full swing in preparing for JavaOne. You might wonder why a bit late. Well at the time of the call for papers for JavaOne the MVC JSR was still in a large state of flux. Since then a lot has happened, it is currently waiting for its final approval (yes the ballot closes Sept 22, 2014, which is today).

What is the next step in the process for JSF and MVC?

Posted by mriem on September 4, 2014 at 1:53 PM PDT

Now that both JSRs have been filed what is the next step? Well, we are waiting for the ballots to be done.

Once the ballots are done and the results are in (and assuming they are positive, which I assume they will be), then the next part in the process is to form the EG and get started for real.

For both JSRs the approval ballot needs to be done September 22nd, 2014. So stay tuned!

And towards MVC 1.0 we go!

Posted by mriem on August 19, 2014 at 5:54 AM PDT

As part of the JavaEE 8 survey the question was asked if the community wanted a simple action-based MVC framework. Since the answer was a clear yes, we are now going working towards it. The MVC 1.0 JSR has been filed!

And towards JSF 2.3 we go!

Posted by mriem on July 22, 2014 at 6:05 PM PDT

For all JSF folks out there. Some important news happened. What is it? Well, Ed Burns announced Oracle's intent to file JSF 2.3 JSR with me as co-spec lead. See the email to the EG at https://java.net/projects/javaserverfaces-spec-public/lists/users/archiv...

JSF Tip #62 - Understanding rendered="false"

Posted by mriem on June 3, 2014 at 1:03 AM PDT

In JSF you will see people from time to time use rendered="false". But what does it mean?

Well, because in JSF the actual request is page based it builds up a representation of the page when the page gets loaded. When it is building up this representation it builds up the entire page, even the parts that are not going to be rendered.

Eg.

  ...
  <h:body>
