Apple Using JSF for online rebate system

Posted by edburns on September 16, 2008 at 2:22 PM PDT

I received a tip from href="http://matthiaswessendorf.wordpress.com/">Matthias Weflendorf
that Apple is using JSF for its online rebate site, which you can see at
< href="https://rebate.apple.com/art-web/pages/newAccountCreationPage.faces">https://rebate.apple.com/art-web/pages/newAccountCreationPage.faces>.
A quick View Source shows the presence of our javax.faces.ViewState
hidden field. Inspection of the value of that field leads me to believe
they are using href="https://javaserverfaces.dev.java.net/">Mojarra, but I am not
certain. If someone can confirm this, I’d be glad. I've added them to
the href="http://wiki.java.net/bin/view/Projects/RealWorldJSFLinks">RealWorldJSFLinks
Wiki. Please feel free to add any other sites that you know are usin
JSF.

This shows you how popular JSF is ... now ...

And they are using JBoss
