Mojarra 2.0.0 is now available!
There are several ways to obtain the release.
- GlassFish V3 promoted build 69 (out later this week)
- Download directly from https://javaserverfaces.dev.java.net
- Download using Maven2 using information provided here
Please review the release notes as there are important details there pertaining to differences between the implementation and the specification as well as a basic migration guide from 1.2 to 2.0 (note that this is a live document, so we'll be making additions - check back regularly).
The JSF 2.0 tutorial from our Sun documentation team should be available in the coming weeks. As soon as it is, we'll send out a notification. Until then, here are some nice resources for JSF 2.0:
- Andy Schwartz' blog entry - What's New in JSF 2
- Ed Burns' blog - http://www.java.net/blogs/edburns/
- Jim Driscoll's blog - http://www.java.net/blogs/driscoll
- JSF 2.0 EG blog - http://blogs.jsfcentral.com/jsf2group/
I'd like to personally thank all of our external contributors who have been committing code to the repository directly or submitting patches to help improve our quality (these are in no particular order - my apologies if I've missed anyone):
- Guy Veraghtert
- Imre Oßwald
- Ted Goddard
- Mark Collette
- Dan Allen
- Alexandr Smirnov
- Martin Marinschek
- Michael Kurz
- Andy Schwartz
I'd also like to thank our top three issue reporters for taking the time to log issues (again, in no particular order)
- Frank Hofmann
- Guy Veraghtert
- Juergen Zimmerman
Also, thanks to Ed Burns, Roger Kitain, Jim Driscoll, and Doug Donahue for putting up with me for the past two years while we worked on this project :)
Finally, if you'd like to discuss JSF 2.0 with other users, I'd recommend the following:
- GlassFish Webtier Forums
- ##jsf IRC channel on freenode.net
The GlassFish Webtier forums are monitored by the Mojarra developers. The IRC channel, also, is frequented by the Mojarra developers, as well as folks from Exadel, MyFaces, and consumers of JSF as a technology. It's a great way to interact with the community.
I'm excited that we've reached this stage and am looking forward to hearing/reading about people's experiences with JSF 2.0!
