JavaServer Faces
JavaServer Faces
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
JavaServer Faces
) is a Java specification forbuilding component-based user interfaces for webapplications.
 It was formalized as a standardthrough the Java Community Process and is part of the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition.JSF 2 uses Facelets as its default templating system.Other view technologies such as XUL can also beemployed. In contrast, JSF 1.x uses JavaServer Pages(JSP) as its default templating system.

JSF versions
JSF 2.2 (2013-05-21) — Introduced new concepts like stateless views, page flow and the ability tocreate portable resource contracts.
JSF 2.1 (2010-11-22) — Maintenance release 2 of JSF 2.0. Only very minor amount of spec changes.
JSF 2.0 (2009-07-01) — Major release for ease of use, enhanced functionality, and performance.Coincides with Java EE 6.JSF 1.2 (2006-05-11) — Many improvements to core systems and APIs. Coincides with Java EE 5.Initial adoption into Java EE.JSF 1.1 (2004-05-27) — Bug fix release. No specification changes.JSF 1.0 (2004-03-11) — Initial specification released.
How it works
Based on a component-driven UI design-model, JavaServer Faces uses XML files called
view templates
JavaServer Faces - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaServer_Faces1 sur 415/07/2014 14:01
Facelets views. The FacesServlet processes requests, loads the appropriate view template, builds acomponent tree, processes events, and renders the response (typically in the HTML language) to the client.The state of UI components and other objects of scope interest is saved at the end of each request in aprocess called
), and restored upon next creation of that view. Either theclient or the server side can save objects and states.
JSF and Ajax
JSF is often used together with Ajax, a Rich Internet application technology. Ajax is a combination of technologies that make it possible to create rich user interfaces. The user interface components in Mojarra(the JSF reference implementation
) and Apache MyFaces were originally developed for HTML only, andAjax had to be added via JavaScript. This has changed, however:Because JSF supports multiple output formats, Ajax-enabled components can easily be added to enrichJSF-based user interfaces. The JSF 2.0 specification provides built in support for Ajax by standardizing theAjax request lifecycle, and providing simple development interfaces to Ajax events, allowing any eventtriggered by the client to go through proper validation, conversion, and finally method invocation, beforereturning the result to the browser via an XML DOM update.JSF 2 includes support for graceful degradation when JavaScript is disabled in the browser.
Ajax-enabled components and frameworks
The following companies and projects offer Ajax-based JSF frameworks or component libraries:PrimeFaces Ajax framework with JSF componentsJBoss
 (derived from and replaces
), Ajax-enabled JSF components for layout, fileupload, forms, inputs and many other features.Oracle
 ADF Faces Rich Client 
, Oracle Application Development Framework Backbase
 Enterprise Ajax — JSF Edition
, Ajax framework IBM Notes - XPagesApache MyFaces, The Apache Foundation JSF implementation with Ajax componentsSun
 Java BluePrints AJAX Components
ZK Ajax framework with JSF componentsICEfaces, open-source, Java JSF extension framework and rich components, Ajax without JavaScript
Latest developments
Facelets (which was designed specifically for JavaServer Faces) was adopted as the official view technologyfor JSF 2.0. This eliminates the life-cycle conflicts that existed with JSP, forcing workarounds by Javadevelopers.
 Facelets allows easy component/tag creation using XML markup instead of Java code, thechief complaint against JSF 1.x.The new JSF developments also provide wide accessibility to Java 5 annotations such as @ManagedBean,@ManagedProperty and @FacesComponent which removes the need for faces-config.xml in all casesexcept framework extension. Navigation has been simplified, removing the need for faces-config.xmlnavigation cases. Page transitions can be invoked simply by passing the name of the desired View/Facelet.

Addition of Partial State Saving and DOM updates are part of the built in standardized Ajax support.The latest JSF release has built-in support for handling resources like images, CSS and Javascript, allowingartifacts to be included with component libraries, separated into JAR files, or simply co-located into aconsistent place within the web-application. Includes logical naming and versioning of resources.JSF 2.0 also includes a number of other changes like adding support for events, separate development,staging, and production modes, similar to RAILS_ENV in Ruby on Rails, and significantly expanding thestandard set of components.
In their January 2014 "Technology Radar" publication, ThoughtWorks wrote:
We continue to see teams run into trouble using JSF -- JavaServer Faces -- and arerecommending you avoid this technology. Teams seem to choose JSF because it is a J2EE (sic)standard without really evaluating whether the programming model suits them. We think JSF isflawed because it tries to abstract away HTML, CSS and HTTP, exactly the reverse of whatmodern web frameworks do. JSF, like ASP.NET webforms, attempts to create statefulness ontop of the stateless protocol HTTP and ends up causing a whole host of problems involvingshared server-side state. We are aware of the improvements in JSF 2.0, but think the model isfundamentally broken. We recommend teams use simple frameworks and embrace andunderstand web technologies including HTTP, HTML and CSS.
