Old PrimeFaces ColorPicker wasn't lightweight as I wanted it to be, it was requiring many resources to be loaded on the page and it was YUI based which we try to replace with jQuery as I've explained before. 3.0.M2 has a new colorPicker built on top of jQuery ColorPicker plugin with various PrimeFaces extensions to make it play nice with JSF programming model. Notable improvements of new colorPicker over old one are; Lightweight New display modes,...

Conference break is over and I've started working on PrimeFaces 3.0.M2. First improved thing in 3.0.M2 is the layout component, previous layout component was based on YUI layout and as you already now, we are trying to replace the remaining YUI stuff in PrimeFaces with third party jQuery counterparts when available or write our own widgets. Old layout was doing the job but had various limitations. New Layout is based on jQuery Layout project with a...

I was in Vienna, Austria last week to join Confess 2011 conference formerly known as JSFDays/EJugDays. This was my third time in Vienna and really enjoyed meeting JSF Crew (Ed Burns, Kito Mann, Matthias Wessendorf, Max Katz, Mart Struberg, Neil Griffin and all friends from Irian) again.

Have you ever tried to add a different background color like red to highlight invalid input fields when validation fails? With JSF 2.0, this is a trivial process, here is one way; [crayon-58dc8e3a369c2717031615/] component refers to the current component being rendered and if input is not valid style class applied is defined based on this condition. There is still room for improvement, downside of the example above is as page author you need to add this condition EL to...

In one of our PrimeFaces powered applications, we use a single growl component placed in a template of the application. All application wide messages are displayed using this growl so each page using the template does not need to define it every time. Problem is on every page we need to update this growl component for most of the ajax requests like commandButton update="growl", commandLink update="growl", instead I've thought of a way to auto update it...
