Dynamic Faces Component Library Makes it Easy to Ajaxify JavaServer Faces Components
By divas on May 06, 2007
One of the things I have been working on for the last few months is writing about the Visual Web Pack Dynamic Faces component library that has been under development, and a very cool chat program that Matt designed to demonstrate this technology.
The Dynamic Faces technology, which comes from the JSF Extensions project, makes it extremely easy to Ajaxify plain old JavaServer Faces components.
The Visual Web Pack Dynamic Faces component library is now available from the NetBeans Update Center, along with another sample application that Matt wrote. To learn how to obtain and install the library and sample application, see Installing the Currency Trader Sample Application, available from the NetBeans Visual Web Pack documentation page.
If you are attending JavaOne 2007, and you are interested in Dynamic faces, here are some sessions, labs, and BOFs to check out:
- BOF-6825: Testing Web 2.0 Features, Using Real-World Applications by Prakash Narayan and Ed Burns
- TS-9511: Using Ajax With POJC (Plain Old JavaServer Faces Components) by Craig McClanahan and Matthew Bohm
- S288058: Building Ajax-Enabled JavaServer Faces Components and Web Applications With jMaki, Dynamic Faces, and the NetBeans IDE by Greg Murray, Craig McClanhan, Ludovic Champenois, and Roberto Chinichi. This presentation is at CommunityOne which is a free event.
- Lab-4460: Building Ajax-Enabled JavaServer Faces Components and Web Applications with jMaki, Dynamic Faces, and the NetBeans IDE, by me, Craig McClanahan, Matthew Bohm, Winston Prakash, and the Andersons.
Also, come by the NetBeans Visual Web Pack booth at the JavaOne pavillion to see demos of how easy it is to use the Dynamic Faces technology. Tell them Chris sent you .
