New release of JSF AJAX Components (Updated)

Posted by edburns on April 20, 2006 at 6:51 AM PDT

Many thanks to my pal Vernon Singleton for handholding me through the process of converting these huge QuickTime files down to much smaller FLV and SWF files. Maybe he'll do a blog on how to do it!

Nearly a year ago, the BluePrints and JSF teams at Sun began to work
on the story of how AJAX and JSF would work together. As we began to
get into it, we found that these two technologies were very
complimentary. We developed and continue to refine techniques for how
to use AJAX with JSF.

The landing page for the Java BluePrints AJAX components is:

<href="https://blueprints.dev.java.net/ajaxcomponents.html">https://blueprints.dev.java.net/ajaxcomponents.html>

I've recorded a screencast blog for each of the components in the
catalog. Please excuse my slow pace of speaking, I'm aware that we have
a large contingent of European JSF developers and my tendency is to
speak fast American English. Therefore, I made a conscious effort to
speak slowly.

These components leverage the Dojo
Toolkit
and make use of the JSF PhaseListener approach
for serving up JavaScript files and handling AJAX requests on the JSF
server. This approach was innovated by the Blueprints and JSF teams and
generalized in the href="http://struts.apache.org/struts-shale/features-remoting.html">Shale
Remoting library, which these components leverage to great
effect.
