I'm pleased to officially announce that I've joined JavaServer Faces Expert Group. Special thanks to star  spec lead Ed Burns for inviting me to the EG. Now that JSF 2.0 is released and being adopted rapidly, EG has already started to work on JSF 2next to keep the progress coming. Hopefully my new position in JSF community will make it even easier for me to contribute more....

I'm glad to announce that www.PrimeFaces.org is now live. We've moved the website and other resources from http://primefaces.prime.com.tr to new homepage of PrimeFaces. Support forum is still in old domain and we've decided to keep it there at the moment....

Good news to PrimeFaces community! I've spent quite some time on my ubuntu vps and finally managed to setup hudson to build PrimeFaces artifacts on a daily basis. In addition to UI Components, sample applications including component showcase, phonebook (seam-jpa) and moviecollector (spring-jpa) are also deployed to Prime Technology repository every day with sources included. Download page is updated on PrimeFaces homepage to reflect changes as well. Also PrimeFaces community has read only access to hudson to...

PrimeFaces team is pleased to announce that PrimeFaces 2.0.0.RC is released, this initial release is the port of 1.0.0.RC targeting JSF 2.0. You can download the release from downloads section and reference documentation is updated to cover this release. So which JSF 2.0 features does PrimeFaces use? Currently state management is migrated to new state management infrastructure of JSF 2.0 which performs much better compared to JSF 1.x. We still keep our Resource Servlet and decided not...

I've created various sample mobile apps before such as Translator, Weather, News, Notes, Twitter Client and Mobile Chat (powered by PrimeFaces/Atmosphere Push infastructre) etc. Since these are webapps tuned for mobile app look and feel, I was wondering the limits of a mobile webapp compared to a native app. Geolocation and GPS support might sound like one of these limitations but well, it is not :) As a proof of concept for a PrimeFaces/TouchFaces app I've created the PathFinder, A...

I'll be speaking at JSFSummit 09 in Orlando between December 1-4 with my "Rapid RIA with PrimeFaces" session. I really enjoyed last year in Washington D.C. when the conference was called JSFOne back then. I'm really looking forward to get together again with folks like Ed Burns, my man Matthias Wessendorf, Martin Marinschek, Max Katz, Kito Mann and Andy Schwartz. It'll be a great conference! ...

I've added another sample to TouchFaces showcase applications, this one is called TwitFaces allowing to view someone's tweets in your iphone. The app integrates with twitter rest api and created with TouchFaces mobile JSF kit of PrimeFaces. Let's begin with TwitterService [crayon-594c5cef9b7ae421536102/] And TwitterRSSService, the RSS based implementation using Rome. [crayon-594c5cef9b7b2840023865/] And the JSF backing bean called TwitterController powered by PrimeFaces Optimus. [crayon-594c5cef9b7b4168457948/] Finally create your app as a JSF page, twitfaces.xhtml; [crayon-594c5cef9b7b6352427570/] That's it running twitfaces.jsf displays; TwitFaces is a very simple app, a full blown...

Two PrimeFaces modules, Optimus and FacesTrace are moved to the PrimeFaces Extensions as spin-off projects and PrimeFaces UI module is renamed as PrimeFaces.  Main goal of PrimeFaces has always been to be the ultimate JSF component suite, by this change PrimeFaces became all about UI again....

Legacy way to display binary images is to create a servlet and send the byte content as a stream. This requires a dedicated servlet and probably different servlets dealing with handling cases. PrimeFaces features a simple but powerful StreamedContent API and p:graphicImage component to display any binary image easily. This binary image could be images stored in a database or images created programmatically on-the-fly. Following are a couple examples for demonstrating how easy it is to display...
