I've set up a fun development environment for the new PrimeFaces Mobile, successor of TouchFaces. For Iphone I use the emulator and for android I use my own htc desire connected to local network so I can test PrimeFaces instantly. Having said that PrimeFaces Mobile is based on jQuery Mobile so a wide range of devices(etc iphone, android, windows mobile, blackberry) are supported. Demos are coming soon! ...

I was on the road for on-site consulting last week and travelled quite a lot. Despite these time consuming things, thanks to midnights and any kind of spare time I can find, I've managed to come up with the new PrimeFaces Tree implementation as announced before. New Tree is written from ground up to fix the problems and limitations of our old tree. It is one of our home grown(not wrapping a third party widget) components...

Lately I see more examples about PrimeFaces Influence on other libraries, gathered a couple of examples; RichFaces Sandbox This is a project led by Bernard Labno, there are 8 components currently and 7 of them have been in PrimeFaces more than 6 months ago. Forum posts linked to each component has references to PrimeFaces. For example; Schedule: "Primefaces just call the same URL, as the page on which the component is used, but only that component is being re-rendered" Notify/Growl:...

I've started the visual prototype of new tree component of 3.0. Tree is actually one of the 5 left-overs(tree, charts, carousel, layout, colorpicker) from our old YUI code base and it will be reimplemented from ground up for 3.0 like others. Current one has various limitations, doesn't look cool, not theme aware and in general does not match PrimeFaces standards. Here is a screenshot to compare the old one with the new one(uses rocket theme). I've already...

TimePicker add-on for PrimeFaces calendar is one of the most voted requests in our issue tracker with 58 votes, so I've added this functionality as an integrated feature to the calendar component. Notable features are; Integrated to calendar component Standalone timepicker functionality without date Selectable time ranges Step factors Online Demo Beta demo is available at Labs Showcase. 3.o Development Progress We are on schedule for 3.0 development, next week I'm on a break for on-site consulting and will move...

SelectOneMenu is a member of new PrimeFaces Form Controls. It extends standard selectOneMenu component with theme integration, various animations and custom content display. Let me focus on custom content display which is my favorite feature. Suppose you have a custom domain object like Player and you want to display detailed information about Player on overlay menu. Here we go; [crayon-5a35d6d3ce2be007466744/] [crayon-5a35d6d3ce2c3255455143/] You can customize the overlay content by using p:column components, output of this example based on different themes...

In PrimeFaces documentation page, we've added following paragraph; "Price of User's Guide is minimum 9.90 Euros. For companies, we appreciate if this fee is considered per developer. User's Guide is an important resource for the financial backbone of PrimeFaces, by paying over the minimum price you'll support us greatly while we maintain codebase, add new features, provide community support and keep PrimeFaces open. In the end you'll also be investing your own project built with PrimeFaces." So we...

One of things we have been planning to improve in PrimeFaces 3.0 is the fileUpload, as of 2.2.x, only flash based uploads are supported. Although flash can provide rich functionality, it causes various side effects like session tracking, dependency to flash plugin and issues with ajax updates. So I've reimplemented fileUpload for 3.0 with two modes. Simple mode is what you get with native browser input type="file" upload and other is advanced mode powered by HTML5....

Yesterday I've blogged about my PrimeFaces session being rejected by JAXConf/JSFSummit and my decision to withdraw(I've deleted that entry not to keep such a negative one on my blog). After emailing several times with organizers (Kito and Claudia), they have explained me the situation. Turns out PrimeFaces was selected in initial sessions but not added due to uncertainty about covering my travel expenses since Turkey to US is an expensive flight and most other speakers are...

It has been a week and a half since the PrimeFaces User's Guide is out and sales are close to my expectations. I was expecting 500 per month and it is around 300 at the moment. Thanks to everyone who purchased the guide and supported us. PrimeFaces is not backed by vendors like JBoss or Oracle but it has never been a problem, I think PrimeFaces can go head to head with their products. With your...
