JavaServer Facesby Hans Bergsten
Synopses & Reviews
JavaServer Faces, or JSF, brings a component-based model to web application development that's similar to the model that's been used in standalone GUI applications for years. The technology builds on the experience gained from Java Servlets, JavaServer Pages, and numerous commercial and open source web application frameworks that simplify the development process.
In JavaServer Faces, developers learn how to use this new framework to build real-world web applications. The book contains everything you'll need: how to construct the HTML on the front end; how to create the user interface components that connect the front end to your business objects; how to write a back-end that's JSF-friendly; and how to create the deployment descriptors that tie everything together.
JavaServer Faces pays particular attention to simple tasks that are easily ignored, but crucial to any real application: working with tablular data, for example, or enabling and disabling buttons. And this book doesn't hide from the trickier issues, like creating custom components or creating renderers for different presentation layers. Whether you're experienced with JSF or a just starting out, you'll find everything you need to know about this technology in this book.

Book News Annotation:
Written for developers familiar with HTML and Java programming, this book introduces the new JavaServer Faces (JSF) framework for simplifying the development and maintenance of complex web-based user interfaces. Bergsten, who is a member of the JSF specification team, uses a sample web-based expense report system to illustrate how JSF components are created and rendered, user input is validated, events are handled, and data is displayed. The examples were tested on a Tomcat 5 server.
