Ever wonder how much work it takes to utilize AJAX on JSF's component model? Ever dive into examples online and wonder where the collaboration exists?
With JSF, we have this robust component model, an extreme amount of collaboration that has existed since the spec's inception. AJAX has arrived, but many of the examples online simply jump outside of JSF to provide ivory tower solutions with lots of manual coding by the end developer. This can inevitably falter long term and place developers back into the same situation they were in with JSP and JSF where things didn't 'jive'.
In hopes of pioneering a different perspective on AJAX with components acting as pure, mediating collaborators-- Adam Winer, Ed Burns and I will be presenting a possible future in TS-1161 at JavaOne.
