Cloud Tutorial – JavaServer Faces in a Day

Marcus Schiesser and Martin Schmollinger

Learn how to develop a web UI using Java and JSF in barely a day.

This Cloud Tutorial is the first of an upcoming series building a web application step by step with Java EE technology. It will see us implement the user interface of the sample application using JavaServer Faces (JSF).


Book Description

JavaServer Faces Version 2.2 (JSR-344) is the standard for implementing the web layer of an application in Java EE 7. This Cloud Tutorial will see us implement the user interface of a sample application. Besides the standard JSF UI component library an additional library, PrimeFaces, will be used in the end to improve user experience. Our aim is to introduce the reader to the necessary technologies step-by-step as we move through the implementation process.
