In order to bring the testing matrix for Mojarra more in line with Oracle’s current engineering investment, we are planning to have all future Mojarra builds that are targeting the upcoming JSF 2.1 specification only support JavaSE 6 and beyond. Any 2.0.X and 1.2 builds will still continue to be built with Java SE 5. If you have any comments about this decision, please let me know here....

I'm organizing my thoughts for my JavaOne talk HyperproductiveJSF 2.0 and I want to build the talk around the most common waysthat time is wasted when using JSF in a project. I've talked to lots ofusers, in many different kinds of organizations over the years but it'shard to organize the stories. So, I'm coming, cap in hand, to theblogosphere asking people to share the things that have caused...

JSF 2.1 Build 01 integrateg into GlassFish nightly This quick entry announces that we've started work on JSF 2.1 in earnest. Soon after Oracle acquired Sun, Blake Sullivan and Andy Schwartz, Oracle UI Technologies Architectects from the ADF Faces team, donated a significant patch of performance enhancement work to the Mojarra project. This work initially went into JSF 1.2 and will be in the...

At the very beginning of my full time programmer career, when I worked at Silicon Graphics, Larry Wall and Randal Schwartz gave a brown bag session about their now legendary camel book. Naturally, I had them sign my copy, the front page of which I proudly display at left. Notice the “There’s More Than One Way To Do It!” stamp at the top. For better or worse, Perl is famous...

There’s this guy, Peter Thomas , and he has this blog entry called “jsf sucks”. I don’t want to increase his page rank so I’m not linking to it here. However, it’s certainly a popular page since it’s the top link for “jsf sucks” on google, bing, and Yahoo!. I have read the entire blog entry, all of the entries linked from it, most of the...

Back in November, Sebastian Hennebrueder published a detailed, thoughtful, and mostly objective analysis of JSF2. I'd like to use this entry to respond to his entry, which may be found at http://www.laliluna.de/jsf-2-evaluation-test.html. I have excerpted the parts of his article that pertain to my comments here. JSF 2 - evaluation and test    Introduction JSF is a standard to...

The following topics and more will be covered in detail in my upcoming book with Neil Griffin, JavaServer Faces 2.0: The Complete Reference. Please enjoy this early access content! One challenging aspect of designing JSF 2.0 was how to standardize Facelets. We wanted to standardize only the minimum amount that would still allow developers get the job done. Initially, we did not include binary...

My previous entry dove under the covers for JSF 2.0 and examined composite component metadata. This one is far less esoteric and shows how to handle the ViewExpiredException using a new JSF feature, the ExceptionHandler, contributed by Pete Muir a JSF Expert Group representative from JBoss. JSF throws a ViewExpiredException when a postback is made to a view and, for whatever reason, that view...

My last blog entry about JSR-314-OPEN@JCP.ORG was over a year ago. This list is the official Expert Group (EG) mailing list on which the development of the JSR-314 specification (JSF 2.0) is discussed. The information on how to subscribe/unsubscribe to this list changed in June 2010, but I haven't updated any existing information or blogged any new information about it. This is the overdue...

They chose JSF 1.2 and Seam as a part of their stack. One idea Thiaogo shared with me...
