Book Summary : Core JavaServer Faces 3rd Edition

JavaServer Faces (JSF) is the standard Java EE technology for building web user interfaces. It provides a powerful framework for developing server-side applications, allowing you to cleanly separate visual presentation and application logic. JSF 2.0 is a major upgrade, which not only adds many useful features but also greatly simplifies the programming model by using annotations and “convention over configuration” for common tasks.

To help you quickly tap into the power of JSF 2.0, the third edition of Core JavaServer™ Faces has been completely updated to make optimum use of all the new features. The book includes

Three totally new chapters on using Facelets tags for templating, building composite components, and developing Ajax applications
Guidance on building robust applications with minimal hand coding and maximum productivity–without requiring any knowledge of servlets or other low-level “plumbing”

  • A complete explanation of the basic building blocks–from using standard JSF tags, to working with data tables, and converting and validating input
  • Coverage of advanced tasks, such as event handling, extending the JSF framework, and connecting to external services
  • Solutions to a variety of common challenges, including notes on debugging and troubleshooting, in addition to implementation details and working code for features that are missing from JSF
  • Proven solutions, hints, tips, and “how-tos” show you how to use JSF effectively in your development projects

Core JavaServer Faces, Third Edition, provides everything you need to master the powerful and time-saving features of JSF 2.0 and is the perfect guide for programmers developing Java EE 6 web apps on Glassfish or another Java EE 6-compliant application servers, as well as servlet runners such as Tomcat 6.

JavaServer Faces promises to bring rapid user-interface development to server-side Java. It allows developers to painlessly write server-side applications without worrying about the complexities of dealing with browsers and Web servers. It also automates low-level, boring details like control flow and moving code between web forms and business logic.

JavaServer Faces was designed to support drag and drop development of server-side applications," but you can also think of it as a conceptual layer on top of servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP). Experienced JSP developers will find that JavaServer Faces provides much of the plumbing that they currently have to implement by hand. If you already use a server-side framework such as Struts, you will find that JavaServers Faces uses a similar architecture, but is more flexible and extensible. JavaServer Faces also comes with server-side components and an event model, which are fundamentally similar to the same concepts in Swing.

JavaServer Faces is quickly becoming the standard Web-application framework. Core JavaServer Faces is the one book you need to master this powerful and time-saving technology.

Without assuming knowledge of JSP and servlets, Core JavaServer Faces:

  • shows how to build more robust applications and avoid tedious handcoding
  • answers questions most developers don't even know to ask
  • demonstrates how to use JSF with Tiles to build consistent user interfaces automatically
  • provides hints, tips, and explicit "how-to" information that allows you to quickly become more productive
  • explains how to integrate JSF with databases, use directory services, wireless apps, and Web services
  • teaches best practices and good habits like using style sheets and message bundles
  • covers all of the JSF tags and how to create new tag libraries
