Java EE6 focused on developer productivity and includes numerous enhancements that are true game-changers. In this session Pete and Dan will walk you through the key improvements, including those to EJB, Servlets, easy archive creation, Bean Validation (based on Hibernate Validator), JPA 2.0 criteria queries (thank you Hibernate) and the standardization of dependency injection (JSR 299 CDI). Through the use of a publicly available sample application, Pete and Dan will show you exactly how you can use these new features and hope to have a major impact on your daily life as an enterprise developer.
This webinar will provide in-depth coverage of several new JSF 2.0 features. It will also ask of each : Is the current solution sufficient? Where is it lacking? We'll then review how RichFaces 4 is enhancing JSF to solve these issues by prototyping functionality for the future of JSF.
The JSF 2.0 specification (JSR-314) addresses a substantial number of long standing pain points that JSF users have just come to accept as a hard knock life. JSF 2.0 is a true contender amongst web frameworks. It is not the end of the story though, and thankfully the expert group has once again left the door open for projects like RichFaces to extent, prototype and improve the specification. RichFaces lead the industry with ajax support for JSF1.2, played a significant role in the development of JSF 2.0, and continues to lead and prototype the future of the JSF standard for the RIA ecosystem.
Whether you are a new JSF/RichFaces user who wants to find out more about the latest developments in the specification or an old hat with an issue or two on your mind, this session has something to offer you!
JBoss Central provides an archetype for RichFaces 4, also implementing the "kitchensink" example. RichFaces 4 leverages EE 6's BeanValidation by moving those declarative validation rules from the server down to the client.
