JSF 2.0 EDR implementation available from Mojarra
By alexismp on Jun 28, 2008
JSF 2.0 is one of the key Java EE 6 components. As an API, JSF 2.0 (aka JSR 314) is in the Early Access Draft (EDR) phase. Jim Driscoll announces the availability of Mojarra EDR 1 which is the Mojarra (a GlassFish sub-project) implementation of that specification. This EDR release should soon be available on the GlassFish v2 update center and later on on the GlassFish v3 update center.
As a reminder, JSF 2.0 has the following objectives: make writing JSF components easier, integrated support for Ajax, reduced configuration, portlet 2.0 alignment, integration of facelets, support for Rest principles, and more. Ed has a nice summary of yet more features. As an implementation, Mojarra also has a number of interesting features beyond what the specification requires such as Groovy integration for a save/reload development paradigm.
