Check out PrimeFaces Labs to see this in action!...

Aria roles and attributes will be available for commonly used components in 3.1 and further versions will get...

FileDownload in PrimeFaces is implemented as a JSF action listener that streams the file to the client, changes the response content type and finishes the JSF request lifecycle at invoke application phase so although the request is a faces request, response is not. One downside of this approach is the monitoring of the filedownload, if the file is big it may take some time so it is better to show some UI to the user while...
