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...

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...

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...

Hurray Java 8 is out! See for more information at...

In every JSF application view state is kept either on the client or on the server. How do you make sure this state is smaller?

Today we are covering what the "com.sun.faces.sendPoweredByHeader" context-param does.

The "com.sun.faces.validateXml" context-param makes it possible for you to have the Mojarra JSF runtime verify your configuration files against the faces-config.xml schema. If an error is found...

By convention in Faces Flows the page that is the start node has the same name as the flow, but is it possible to change that? It sure is, read on!

Why would you add a placeholder component to the tree using ui:component? Well, sometimes you need to add content dynamically, but you also need to be able sure where it ends up.

I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!

And that is it.

Enjoy!

Occasionally, users have the need to override the version of JSF included in the application server by bundling a different version of JSF with their application. If you are trying to use CDI in...

To make it possible to debug the view tree the JSF runtime has a debug component (ui:debug) that you can use. What is the best way to do this?

How do you convert a date in JSF?

If you have ever wondered which version of Mojarra is running on the container you can determine what version is running using a simple piece of code. How?

Hurray, 50 JSF tips!

Ever wondered how you would use a composite component within a composite component? Or is it not possible? It most certainly is possible, so lets see how!

In the previous blog entry we touched upon packaging a custom converter. Now we'll describe what you need to do to use it.

Just like a composite component you might want to distribute a converter, but how would you package it? Easy, read the rest down below!

Sometimes you need to write a custom converter to converter the client side representation to an object instance and vice versa. What is need to use a custom converter? See below.

When you developed a composite component the namespace you would be seeing would look like "http://java.sun.com/jsf/composite/xxxxxx". But what if you are not allowed to use it that way or you...
