The source code for the session can be found in the JSFlive Github repository jsf-get-examples (still work in progress).
I am very proud to announce, that at the third edition of our german JSF book JavaServer Faces 2.2 – Grundlagen und erweiterte Konzepte is available.
The new edition adds JSF 2.2 topics like HTML5 integration, the file upload component, Faces Flows or resource library contracts. Besides that, the new book additionally shows how to use PrimeFaces and how to integrate JSF and CDI.
The examples can be found in the JSFlive Github repository jsf22-examples.
HTML5 is probably one of the most used buzzwords in the web development world these days. But behind the hype there are some really useful features and enhancements making the life of web developers easier (and probably more exciting). There have been several community approaches to combine JSF and HTML5 but the official support starts with JSF 2.2. In this post of the series on JSF 2.2 I will show how to create HTML5 friendly markup with passthrough attributes and elements.
JSF and CDI are a very fine and powerful combination. But until recently there was something missing in this relationship: the view scope. In this post of the series on JSF 2.2 I will quickly show the new JSF 2.2 view scope implementation for CDI.
In this post of the series on JSF 2.2 I will show a use case for the new
resetValues attribute on
f:ajax. With this attribute (and the the related code) JSF 2.2 provides a solution for a problem that has been around for quite some time. In some cases JSF cannot update the values of input components during ajax requests unless their value is explicitly reset.
In this post of the series on JSF 2.2 I will show the new XML namespaces used by JSF 2.2 for
faces-config.xml, custom tag lib config files and JSF taglibs. Basically, all namespaces start with
http://xmlns.jcp.org now instead of
http://java.sun.com. So one more remnant of the Sun era that was removed.
