JSF 2.3 @Inject FacesContext

Posted by mriem on October 10, 2014 at 6:40 AM PDT

Starting from the new 2.3 SNAPSHOT builds you can now do

 @Inject FacesContext facesContext;

Note you will need to make sure you use the latest 2.3 SNAPSHOT build available from and that you include a faces-config.xml that states version 2.3.

JavaOne 2014 Day Two Notes

Posted by edburns on October 9, 2014 at 1:16 PM PDT

The flow of my JavaOne 2014 experience had each day getting progressively less demanding. Day zero was an eight hour class. Day one was booth duty, a session , EG meeting, and a BOF.

JSF 2.3 changes so far

Posted by mriem on October 9, 2014 at 6:17 AM PDT

A number of spec issues have been handled for the 2.3 cycle and I would like to call them out. Note today's list is going to be a bit longer than going forward. I intend to write up a small blog entry every week enumerating what happened that week, so we all can keep track of where we are at.

The issues handled are:

#1307 - validator attributes TLD doc misleading

The first batch of MVC expert group members have been determined. For the ones that were added to the EG, welcome aboard! For the ones that were declined, please be aware there are multiple ways to stay involved with the MVC specification, so please don't despair!

Finding the right Java "sizeof" was one of my first tasks at Nexmo

Posted by jacksjpt on October 7, 2014 at 6:25 AM PDT

There are occasions when you need to know how much space a particular data structure is taking. You may have seen my recent newsletter about Java "sizeof" implementations which allow you to do that.

MVC 1.0 next steps

Posted by mriem on October 6, 2014 at 2:44 AM PDT

In case you didn't know starting a specification takes a bit of time. All kinds of infrastructure needs to be setup. So please bear with us.

JavaOne 2014 is a wrap!

Posted by mriem on October 3, 2014 at 12:12 PM PDT

I had a great time at JavaOne this year. I met up with a lot of old friends, made a number of new friends, but above all learned a lot. And I am excited to start hacking on both the JSF and the MVC specifications!
