The JSF framework can be used in JSP and other Java view technologies. In the book Java Server Faces In Action, the author Kito D. Mann explains with practical examples how this framework can be combined with other Java based technologies such as the JSP. Working on JSF with other technologies such as facelets, portlets and struts is also explained.
The book starts with an introduction of JSF and related fundamentals and goes on to a beginner’s guide around JSF and some standard components. The first part of the book ends with descriptions on how to use input and data table components and other tools such as validators and converters.
The second part of the book is a guide to building user interfaces which includes an introduction to Project Track. This is followed by guidelines on developing user interfaces with Java Codes for the Login page as well as other pages. The part ends with details on integrating application functionality.
The next part of the Java Servers Faces In Action is based on developing application logic. This begins with a chapter on the JSF environment and moves on to application building techniques covering design issues, security and internationalization. The last chapter in part 3 is about integrating JSF with struts and existing applications.
The final part titled ‘Writing Custom Components, renderers, validators and converters’ is a component developer’s perspective on the JSF environment.
