How can JSF still be relevant in a world where Vaadin and Thin Server Architecture is on the rise? This presentation shows how new features in JSF 2.2 keep it relevant for a certain class of application that still dominates in the enterprise.
Now that JSF 2.2 has completed, this session will demonstrate the most important features in the context of a self-contained sample application. The features covered include:
* HTML5 Friendly Markup
* Faces Flows
* Resource Library Contracts
The attendee of this session will learn how JSF is still relevant in today's enterprise software stack. Specifically, they will learn why one would want to upgrade to JSF 2.2 rather than opting for a different architecture entirely.
