Announcing the JSF 2.0 EDR2 Release

Posted by driscoll on October 21, 2008 at 12:31 PM PDT

The Mojarra Project is proud to announce the release of the JSF 2.0 EDR2 implementation.

"EDR" stands for Early Draft Review, so this is an early snapshot of what we're doing with the new version of JSF. It should be of interest to anyone who'd like to see where JSF is headed in the months ahead.

You can download the new API, along with the implementation, from the Mojarra project download area. For the folks using the Glassfish Application Server (v3 only), the new API is available via the Glassfish Update Center. Instructions for installing are available in the Release notes for the EDR2 release of Mojarra.

The actual JSF 2.0 EDR2 specification is available from the JCP site.

For those who'd prefer a more example-laden description of some of the new JSF 2.0 features, please check out Ryan Lubke's blog - he's been blogging about the new 2.0 features since February - skip back a bit in his blog to Part 1, and start reading from there.

As always, we'd love to hear your feedback! The whole purpose of this release is to get feedback both on the API, as well as on the implementation of it, so feel free to leave comments either here, on our forum, or on the mailing lists - or you could even just file a bug, either on the implementation or the spec.
