Bootstrapping a JSF 2 Project

I needed a break this afternoon, so I thought I'd see how easy it is to bootstrap a JSF 2 project.  One of the biggest complaints about JSF 1.x is all that XML, so JSF 2 is aiming to fix that.  How have we done so far?  Based on this quick look (which is my first from-scratch JSF 2 app), really, really well.

JSF 2 Gets Declarative Event Handling

If you've been following the evolution of the JSF 2 spec closely, you have probably seen the addition of a finer-grained event system (if you haven't seen it, section 3.4 of the spec is the relevant one).  These events include things like AfterAddToViewEvent, BeforeRenderEvent, ViewMapCreatedEvent, etc.  An application developer could subscribe to these events from a managed bean by using the API exposed by the new system.  While that is a big improvement over the way things work in 1.2, it still leave page authors out in the cold until, that is, this week.  Yesterday I committed the code to support declarative even handling to Mojarra.  In this short entry, we'll take a look at what that entails, and how to use it.[Read More]

In this short article, we’ll show how to do exactly that.[Read More]

Extending the GlassFish v3 Prelude Administration Console

Today, the GlassFish community is launching GlassFish v3 Prelude (Release Notes and Quick Start Guide). If you are not familiar with what Prelude is, here is a short write up giving the high level details. In this article, I'd like to focus on the third bullet there, "CLI and administration console extensibility." Specifically, we'll look at what it takes to create a plugin that will extend GlassFish v3's Administration Console.[Read More]

The Means Stultify the End

From time to time, someone, trying to cut through all the hype and spin, will attempt some sort of statistical analysis to determine which web framework is "winning." The results are almost always disappointing, and not because I don't agree with the outcome, but because the methodology is so flawed. The most recent attempt I've discovered, noble as it is, is no different.[Read More]
