ICEFaces 2.0, more familiar faces for the new year


The long-awaited version 2 of ICEfaces was released late in December 2010.
This version extends the JSF 2.0 features to add a new suite of components, an alternative to <f:ajax/> (see Direct-to-DOM render kit) for existing JSF components, a re-architected AjaxPush/Comet support now available as the IcePush library usable from other non-JSF frameworks, and more.

The release announcement shows support for NetBeans 6.9, Eclipse 3.6, explicit versions of Mojarra (latest is JSF 2.1-b09, minimum is JSF 2.0.3), and GlassFish 3.0, 3.1 Milestone 7 (among others). You can hear about ICEfaces in a recently published JSFCentral interview of Ted Goddard, read this other interview or check out the ICESoft YouTube channel. They also have an upcoming webinar.

ICEFaces 2.0 has come a long way since GlassFish v3 and JSF 2.0 were released (it was then in alpha) and remains a quite popular choice among GlassFish users. In related news, Mojarra 2.1.0 RC1 is now available (via Maven or in the latest promoted build of GlassFish 3.1).
