By jacki decoster on Feb 16, 2007
Project Woodstock is a new open source project that provides an extensive set of JavaServer Faces (JSF) components for web application developers to build enterprise level applications. These components are fully featured, user accessible and fully localized for 10 languages.
The Project Woodstock components also contain design time code to enable their use in NetBeans Visual Web Pack 5.5 for easy web application development via dragging and dropping components onto a layout page, allowing the developer to visually organize their application as they build it.
Project Woodstock components range from navigation (Tree, Tab, Breadcrumb) to selectors (ListBox, AddRemove) to date management (Calendar, Scheduler) to a Masthead (with Alarm and Job Status notification) to a Wizard and also a very extensible Table (with sorting, filtering and easy data connection setup).
An Example application shows developers how to use these components with simple web page examples. The source for the Example application is also available.
