JSFTemplating and Woodstock: Component Authoring Made Easy

Wednesday, January 02, 2008 |

In my last post, I alluded to some refactoring done inside the Sandbox / Scales library to simplify the components' code. If you are interested in learning more about what was done, and how you can apply the same techniques to your own JSF components, please see this article, written by Ken Paulsen and myself, with editing help from Rick Palkovic, which shows how one can use JSFTemplating and some (currently "private") annotations from the Woodstock project to greatly simplify JSF component authoring. I think it’s a very interesting and helpful technique, which, by the way, resembles what JSF 2 will likely offer when we finally ship it later this year.

Oh, yeah. Happy New Year’s! :)
