Having started programming as a 14 year old in the early 80th I've done lots of things with computers. Starting from manually coding bits'n bytes going through a long period of C/C++ that accompanied my student-life at the University of Wuerzburg where I got my degree in Physics in 1993. This period extended through the first few years of work which included some years of work with the millions lines of code of Lotus Domino.
In the late 90'th I finally I became addicted to Java and J2EE programming, wrote my own JSP-container and became member of JSTL-expert group (JSR52).
Currenty I'm focused on bringing the best of JSF and AJAX together.
For contributing quite some lines of code to project jMaki SUN awarded me a glassfish-champion-award at Java One 2007.
Other projects that I'm interested in to contribute to are dynafaces and facelets.

The main idea behind jsf is to have a layer of abstraction in the description and the handling of user-interface-components. The components in the component-tree itself are (conceptually)...
