My session on What You Need for Building Cool Enterprise Applications with JSF was accepted for JavaOne 2011 conference in San Francisco.
What You Need for Building Cool Enterprise Applications with JSF
Tuesday, 10:30 AM, Hilton San Francisco – Golden Gate 3/4/5
JSF is the standard UI technology in Java EE, but on its own, it lacks tools for effectively building real-world rich enterprise applications. RichFaces 4, an open source extension for JSF, fills this development gap. RichFaces Core provides major enhancements for Ajax request customization, rendering and execution options, the JSF client queue, and more. RichFaces UI provides a large number of rich out-of-the-box components. RichFaces Skins makes it possible to change the look and feel of entire applications on the fly. The RichFacesComponent Development Kit streamlines building custom components.
This session explores these different aspects of RichFaces to see how each part, in turn, makes it easier to build cool enterprise JSF applications.
Hope to see you there!
It’s new year, and what could be better than to start the first post of 2011 with some great RichFaces news.
New RichFaces 4 book
Ilya Shaikovsky (@ilya_shaikovsky ), a RichFaces team members and myself started working on a new RichFaces book. It’s the second edition of Practical RichFaces (Apress) book and will cover RichFaces version 4 and its new features such as client-side validation, cloud deployment and more. The book is scheduled to be released in April. I will be posting more updates as we write. Here is a (very) tentative TOC:
- Ajax in JSF 2
- Starting with RichFaces, Maven setup
- a4j:tags, features and concepts
- Rich functions, component control
- Client validation
- Skins and themes
- Using with CDI/Seam/Spring
- Building custom components with CDK (Component Development Kit)
- Best practices, performance
- Using other component libraries together
(First edition cover)
I will be signing Practical RichFaces book on Wednesday, June 3rd, 3:30-4pm at the JavaOne book store. If you buy the book there (I think throughout the conference) you will get 20% discount.
