Finally I got some time to complete part 2 of the Creating an AJAX
enabled custom JSF component.
Part1, mainly covers how to write a simple Ajax enabled JSF
component (ImageSlider). In this part, I have given the walk through on how to create
the Image Slider Component. The Image Slider component would take one or more images
and displays each image with a previous and a next link. Clicking on the next or
previous link displays the next or previous image. Since the component has Ajax
capability, the Image Slider component displays the next or previous image by fetching
them with out submitting the form using Ajax transaction.
In Part2, the walk through explains how to add design time to
the ImageSlider component and create a complib archive. Also the walk through explains
how the complib is imported in to the Netbeans Visual Web Pack application to add
the component to a visual web page by drag and drop.
