Dynamic columns has been a PrimeFaces feature for some time via p:columns component. One popular enhancement request with 70+ community votes is adding sort-filter support so we've been planning to implement it in a future version like 3.3 or 3.4. However when we needed the same thing in an application we develop for a client, it was time to speed things up. This is yet another advantage of a web framework being used by its creators. For...

PrimeFaces ProgressBar has been rewritten as a native PrimeFaces widget instead of using jQuery UI ProgressBar as we've faced with a couple of limitations for the extra features we'd like to bring in. New progressbar is backward compatible and has been enhanced with dynamic progress label display along with animations on value change. ProgressBar Demo is available at PrimeFaces 3.2 Labs....

PrimeFaces gets a new component; MegaMenu. We have been getting feature requests from the community regarding this and decided to implement this after finding out what a megamenu is by looking at this link. One nice feature of MegaMenu is the custom content support, in addition to regular submenus and menuitems, you can also place any content inside the MegaMenu. So after working on this for a day, tadaaa; Check out PrimeFaces 3.2 Labs to see MegaMenu...

We have given an interview to InfoQ about the IceFaces forking PrimeFaces code lately and we would like to make one final announcement regarding this; The link of the interview is; http://www.infoq.com/news/2012/02/primefaces-icefaces-copy As stated in the interview, our point never has been legal, PrimeFaces has Apache license which permits this, we have just wanted to spread the word that a competitor has based their code on PrimeFaces without giving enough attribution to the original work. After the first announcement...

PrimeFaces password component gets a makover for 3.2, old version was using a 3rd party jquery plugin with some mismatches with JSF and we've reimplemented the client side ourselves using native PrimeFaces scripting with theme integration and optimizations for JSF. Also fixed a couple of issues regarding positioning. One change regarding backward compatibility is the feedback option that gives password strength indicator, default value of this attribute is now false so if you have it empty, you...

InfoQ has posted an article about PrimeFaces, featuring an interview with us. We've really liked the following analysis in the article; Among the components one can also find implementations for image comparison, tag cloud generation and even an OS X styled stack. One reason for such diversity, according to Prime Teknoloji (the company behind PrimeFaces), is that the firm is not a software vendor. It is a consulting company actually using PrimeFaces for its clients. This is a...

After release of IceFaces 3, we have been getting reports from PrimeFaces Community that IceFaces Ace Components look similar to PrimeFaces. After looking at Ice Ace Components, frankly, we are shocked and disappointed! IceSoft copied PrimeFaces code LINE BY LINE to come up with it's new set of components named Ace. We are aware that we can't take any action legally as code is open however we just want to let you know about this. Here...

PrimeFaces 3.2 development has started along with 3.1.1 maintenance in parallel. The first feature of 3.2 we have added is BlockUI component that can block a particular content. Usage is quite simple thanks to the special ajax integration, also client side api is provided if you need to write extensions or customize it. The component is inspired by the blockui jquery plugin, we have our own implementation instead of using that plugin but the idea is pretty...
