“The one word that I can use to describe both the Primefaces component suite and the team building, supporting, maintaining, and extending it is AMAZING! We have an enterprise-level support agreement, and I can honestly and emphatically say it is the single best software investment we have ever made. After working with the Primefaces team for only a few short months, I have come to the realization that this team is probably one of the hardest working and technically adept teams in the world. They are leading the globe in JSF development, and they will quickly get you excited about what the future holds for JSF and how Primefaces will be leading the way. The technical support we have received is top notch. Every inquiry receives a timely, informative, and exact response. As an enterprise customer, I immediately felt as if the Primefaces team was totally committed to the success of my project. Also, the primefaces component suite is by far the best JSF2 compliant suite available. I could probably find a use for almost every component in my current project. Every person that views the component suite demo is extremely impressed. And you can have confidence knowing how committed the Primefaces team is to ensuring the component suite continues to evolve and improve. Again, I cannot emphasize enough how impressed I have been with every facet of the Primefaces team. I am also truly grateful for all the expert advice I have received from this team, as without their help my project surely would have failed. I strongly urge any individual that is evaluating Primefaces to seriously consider an enterprise support contract. This team will instantly earn your respect and admiration. Strong enterprise support can ensure amazing teams like Primefaces will continue to perform the incredible work that they currently do.” Jim Pollock, Organization: Undisclosed
