Look Ma! No faces-config.xml!


Last summer Ryan wrote a very nice JSF 2.0 Preview Series but then he got pretty busy; today he came by my office and said he will start posting again.

As a first installment, check his note on Implicit Navigation in JSF 2.0; this means that faces-config.xml is not needed in many cases. I think bookmarkable pages is next in Ryan's agenda - that has been a very recent addition to the spec.

JavaOne 2009 is around the corner, so we should expect more Java EE 6 activity; the spec is shaping up very nicely...

BTW, on a somewhat related note, check out Ed's writeup regarding improving transparency on the JSF 2.0 expert group. Baby steps, in the right direction.
