PrimeFaces for .NET Cancelled

PrimeFaces for .NET Cancelled

PrimeFaces for ASP.NET WebForms project has been cancelled after two releases and as PrimeTek we have decided not to do further investments. Instead of .NET, our secondary focus will be PrimeUI who is very close to 1.0 release already and can be used with any web framework.

The reasons for the decision can be summarized as;

  • No feeling of passion that we have for PrimeFaces or PrimeUI
  • WebForms is a legacy technology replaced by MVC successor
  • No Clean and Flexible APIs that JSF provides similarly.
  • Complicated Design of the WebForms for a Component Developer

In summary, PrimeFaces itself is the flagship as always and its brother PrimeUI has now joined the fleet.

“Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.” Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

    What about PrimeFaces Mobile?
    Can we expect a new release soon?

    I think, it is right decision to concentrate on PRIME UI.
    ASP.NET seems to lose interest at a constant rate if stackoverflow tag trends are taken as a reference ( http://hewgill.com/~greg/stackoverflow/stack_overflow/tags/#!asp.net+asp.net-mvc ).

    AFAIK One step back after long time decision taken back from YUI Library to JQuery UI:)

    For mobile devices we have Primefaces mobile, and it uses Jquery mobile , all that is possible to do with jquery mobile is possible to do with PrimeFaces mobile too, but more easy,fast, and using pure java code and simple tag libs…

      I think Primefaces Mobile & Primefaces UI are serving two different purposes. PF Mobile is JSF based server centric component library, while PF UI is simply CSS/JS based. Correct me if I miss anything. 🙂

    Excellent decision to ditch .net

    .net brings no passion, only pain and suffering. Looking forward to the 1.0 release of Prime UI. Blown away by what you have so far keep up the great work and the right decisions !!
