JSF 2.0 so far, in depth
We all know that Ryan Lubke is a top notch engineer, but did you also
know he's a solid technical writer? Ryan has been posting plenty of
really useful content on his
blog about JSF 2.0, including the series on new features in JSF 2.0.
This entry summarizes the series thus far and gives links to each
Part 1: ProjectStage
If you're a fan of Ruby on Rails, and let's face it, who isn't?, this
blog entry coves a simple tip-o-the-hat to RoR found in JSF 2.0.
Part 2: Resources in JSF
If you've ever used Shale remoting or weblets with JSF and wished
such a feature was in the core spec, your wish has come true. We've
also gone a few steps further, thanks to the EG, and added full
localization, versioning and libries.
Part 3: The Resources Java API
Once we have you hooked on the idea of resources, and perhaps on our
implementation of it in JSF, you might want to go deeper into how it
works. Here's your chance.
Part 4: Resources from EL
I love this one because it talks about a totally powerful use of the
EL: to inline references to resources. You get all the localized,
versioned goodness of the resource system, straight from the EL.
Part 5: System Events
The JSF EDR has extended the JSF event system to include a
publish/subscribe event bus for application events. This blog entry
shows how to use it.
Part 6: Pulling it all together: resource annotations
Now that we've established system events and resources, we have an
example that pulls it all together: resource annotations. If you've
ever developed a JSF component and wished for a way for that component
is the way it works!
I hope you find this content useful, I sure did because it gave me a
high level view of the stuff I've been so closely working on for so
