As with any PrimeFaces development iteration, we try to add new features, fix reported bugs and enhance/maintain current features. Design principle of a PrimeFaces component is "It must be cool and look cool". One component that was against this was PickList, here is an old screenshot of old picklist; Pretty lame right? So when a PrimeFaces component is not cool, we usually reimplement it to match PrimeFaces standards preserving the backward compatibility as much as we can,...

Some time ago, I've blogged about my proof-of-concept work about deploying PrimeFaces Showcase to Google AppEngine and how it worked. Due to high demand from PrimeFaces Community, with some late night coding I've created a sample called appengine under PrimeFaces subversion examples repository. For a quick start here is the live example; http://primefaces-gae-kickstart.appspot.com And the complete project with jars included; http://code.google.com/p/primefaces/source/browse/examples/trunk/appengine/ And old showcase is also still running at; http://primefaces-rocks.appspot.com Upcoming PrimeFaces Book will also have a dedicated section for GAE, for now...

I'll be travelling again for the second PrimeFaces tour of the year, first tour was around February-March where I've spoken at JSFDays/EJugDays in Vienna, JDC in Cairo and then at a JUG event in London.

I'd like to announce a change in PrimeFaces documentation. PrimeFaces User's Guide will be renamed to PrimeFaces Book and be commercial to create financial resources for the project. The document is already 413 pages and we'll enhance it with how-to guides and more to add even more value. Sale price of the book will be only 9.90 Euros. For minor releases/updates you can get the updated book without buying it again but for major releases (2.2...

After yesterday's announcement about NetBeans 6.10 support in PrimeFaces, I've started thinking about what we can do for PrimeFaces users who have Eclipse Helios to develop their applications. So I've downloaded helios and created a sample JSF 2.0 project, after playing with xhtml editor I could only get completion support for tags not the attributes for a tag. Then I've figured out that Helios is scanning facelet taglib and so added the attribute metadata to facelet...

NetBeans 6.10 has a surprise for PrimeFaces Community, beginning with 6.10 NetBeans provides PrimeFaces integration. NetBeans team contacted me some time ago before they've started working on this and we've agreed on NetBeans bundling PrimeFaces. Now NetBeans 6.10.M1 is released so we can try the early access version of this support. Most important thing is as I've mentioned, PrimeFaces is now bundled with NetBeans so you don't need to download PrimeFaces manually. When creating a new JSF...

We were running showcase examples on port 8080 before, this was making showcase unavailable to access behind company proxy servers that block 8080. Now we've updated the showcase urls and start running them on port 80 to avoid these issues. New URLs are; Showcase: http://www.primefaces.org/showcase Labs: http://www.primefaces.org/labs ...
