Recently I had the privilege of writing an article for Java Tech Journal about using HTML5 Server Sent Events in a JSF 2 User Interface.
Recently, we've enabled a "view" to simplify the monitoring of JSF automated tests through the Hudson framework.
JSR 330 style injection can now be used with JSF managed beans.
Version 1.0.0.PREVIEW3 of Web Beans (the implementation for JSR 299 Contexts and Dependency Injection For Java EE) now uses the annotations from JSR 330 (Dependency Injection For Java) and it is available in GlassFish V3.
This past week I had the pleasure of attending (and presenting at) the Ajax Experience in San Francisco. The collection of talks were good and the "Reverse Ajax" (Comet) talks were particularly interesting. I spoke a bit about JSF and Ajax, and I'd like to share the technical details of a little "mashup" I put together for my talk.
Two weeks ago, Ericsson announced that MobileFaces, a core library based on the JSF architecture for extending web applications to mobile browsing devices, went open source. The Mobile JSF Kit includes MobileFaces plus some sample applications to help you get started developing web applications for mobile devices. GlassFish is a free, open source application server which implements the newest features in the Java EE 5 platform. So, what do MobileFaces, Mobile JSF Kit and GlassFish all have in common? They all work together...
Last month, another FCS release of Seam (1.1.0.GA) was released.
This release incorporates a number of great capabilities such as a RoR-like application generator called Seam-Gen. I am happy to announce that this release of Seam runs on GlassFish with minimal setup.
My previous blog entries outlined some steps to get Seam running on GlassFish with Hibernate Persistence and Java Persistence. The changes involved some modifications to the Seam core classes. I am happy to report that JBoss has made the modifications in time for their Seam FCS release - so setup is even easier.
Often when you are "heads down" developing a technology, you forget about who might be using that technology. And in the course of giving a presentation about the technology, you may hear a question or two like "yeah... great.... but who is using this out there in the real world?".. Well.. we've compiled an initial list of companies/sites out there that use JSF....
Was AJAX the big splash at JavaOne this year?
I've had questions about how to inject Web Beans into servlets and whether that is supported. In this entry I'll outline a method of accomplishing just that.
