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...

PrimeFaces partial page rendering feature is powered by JSF 2.0's standard Ajax APIs with some of our own extensions. One of these extensions is the client side callbacks for ajax request, standard f:ajax has onerror and onevent whereas PrimeFaces provides onerror, onsuccess, onstart and oncomplete so when do these callbacks are executed? onstart() Before the ajax request is sent, xhr object is passed as a parameter and if you return false you can cancel the request. Also if...

Many PrimeFaces community members have requested for an example about deploying JSF 2.0 and PrimeFaces 2 to Google App Engine. As a lightweight components suite, PrimeFaces does not contain any mumbo jumbo to make things complicated so since GAE supports JSF 2.0, it is quite easy to add PrimeFaces for fancy UIs. I've first installed Google plugin for eclipse and then followed the instructions at this nice tutorial. That was it, PrimeFaces Labs Showcase based on 2.2.RC1-SNAPSHOT and...

We as PrimeFaces Team, have been working with Spring WebFlow team for quite some time for enhanced SpringWebFlow-PrimeFaces-JSF 2.0 integration. And last week outcome of this work is revealed for the first time with Spring WebFlow 2.2.M1 release featuring support for JSF 2.0 ajax, partial state saving and more. Official announcement is at SpringSource Team Blog. After the release, I got together with SWF 2 lead Rossen Stoyanchev once again(we both live in London) to sync things...
