Getting Started

PrimeFaces is a lightweight library with one jar, zero-configuration and no required dependencies. You just need to download PrimeFaces, add the primefaces-{version}.jar to your classpath and import the namespace to get started.

Download

Primefaces can be downloaded manually or via maven.

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.primefaces</groupId>
    <artifactId>primefaces</artifactId>
    <version>6.2</version>
</dependency>

Namespaces

PrimeFaces namespace is necessary to add PrimeFaces components to your pages.

xmlns:p="http://primefaces.org/ui"

Test Run

That’s it, now you can add a test component to see if everything is ok..

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
    xmlns:h="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html"
    xmlns:f="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core"
    xmlns:p="http://primefaces.org/ui">
    
    <h:head>
    </h:head>

    <h:body>
