Lately, PrimeFaces inplace component has been enhanced with ajax editing capabilities, this is quite useful for pages where you'd like handle view/edit use-cases together. So how it works; [crayon-59eda3ebd4828786967526/] View Mode Edit Mode Anything can be used as editor, not just inputs or dropdowns, you can use whatever you've placed inside inplace component (e.g. textarea, checkbox, radiobuttons and more). Just editor attribute needs to be set true, onEditUpdate attribute is optional specifying what component to update when saving the edited...

We have a new Theme for PrimeFaces Users called "Aristo" created by Tait Brown, I've seen this awesome theme at wijmo project(I think wijmo team modified Aristo a bit as Tait's version and wijmo's version differs) and done the hard work to integrate wijmo version well with PrimeFaces. Here are some screenshots of Aristo skinned PrimeFaces components; If you'd like to see Aristo in action, check out PrimeFaces Showcase. Aristo is available at PrimeFaces Theme Gallery as the 28th Theme. !PrimeFaces...

Prior to JSF 2.0 as everyone including PrimeFaces cooked their own solution for Ajax, Resource Loading and other things causing pain for JSF developers who want to use some components from XFaces and YFaces. One of the promises of JSF 2.0 is component library interoperability, still component library authors should work together to identify issues that can or cannot be covered in JSF 2.0 Standards. Last week, OpenFaces 3.0 is released featuring JSF 2.0 support and Dmitry Pikhulya from...

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...
