In an effort to provide developers with a productive environment, Oracle has been working on a very rich UI component framework for several years. This framework - ADF Faces - has now been donated to the open source community. More precisely, it has been donated to the Apache Software Foundation and is currently hosted in the Apache Incubator - http://incubator.apache.org/projects/adffaces.html. Craig McClanahan is mentoring the project during the Apache incubation. The Apache MyFaces community is also involved in the project to assist with graduation from the incubator, into the Apache MyFaces "ADF Faces" subproject. What is ADF Faces?

Jonas and John will address the key aspects of Faces component development, and will introduce innovative techniques to adopt AJ... (more)

Super-Charge JSF AJAX Data Fetch

In our last article - "JSF and AJAX" (JDJ, Vol. 11, issue 1) - we discussed how JavaServer Faces component writers can take advantage of the new Weblets Open Source project (http://weblets.dev.java.net) to serve resources such as JavaScript libraries, icons, and CSS files directly from a Java Archive (JAR) without impacting the application developer. In this article we'll address the need to fetch data using AJAX with JavaServer Faces (JSF) components. The most common use cases for fetching data with AJAX are to populate dropdown lists and add type-ahead functionality in text fi... (more)

JavaServer Faces and AJAX for Google Fans

This is our last article in a series of four that have been introducing the concepts of creating AJAX-enabled JavaServer Faces (JSF) components. In this article we are going to summarize and encapsulate the concepts that were introduced in the three previous articles starting with the "Rich Internet Components with JavaServer Faces", and design a Google-like InputSuggest component. We will show you how to use Mabon to create a simple and powerful input component with built-in suggest functionality similar to what Google Suggest provides. To make it easy for application developer... (more)
