According to the PrimeFaces website, “PrimeFaces is an open source component suite for Java Server Faces featuring 70+ Ajax powered rich set of JSF components. Additional TouchFaces module features a UI kit for developing mobile web applications.“. Since it is an OpenSource JSF implementation that is very close to releasing JSF 2.0 compliant components, I figured it was time to try it out on GlassFish v3. (more…)
In the past few month several Java EE 6 related JSRs (Java Specification Requests) have been finalized. The final ballot for them ended on November 30 and all were approved. Today, December 10, 2009, Java EE 6 and GlassFish v3, THE reference implementation of Java EE6, are released.
On Wednesday, November 11, the Netherlands Java Users Group (NL-JUG) organized the JFall 2009 Java conference. At the conference I had the pleasure of doing a presentation with a live demo about what steps can be taken to migrate an existing JEE5 web application to JEE6. The application ran on GlassFish v2 and I migrated it to GlassFish v3 using NetBeans 6.8 Beta. This article describes my experiences with GlassFish v3 and NetBeans 6.8 Beta and it explains what steps I took to migrate from JEE5 to JEE6.
The upcoming release of JEE 6 means that the next release of GlassFish, version 3, still is under development. However, it is stable enough to try out many features of JEE 6 already. apart from support for JEE 6, the integration with mod_jk has significantly improved recently. Earlier this week I followed the steps in this blog of Amy Roh to make GlassFish v3 available on port 80 using Apache2 and mod_jk. The steps described here are for Debian Lenny, but may equally well be followed for other Linux distributions or Windows.
Like my colleague Lucas I attended JavaOne 2009. This post will describe my impressions of JavaOne 2009. The event turned out to be a mix of great things. I attended loads of great sessions, I met many great people and I had an awesome time in San Francisco.
By the way, did you already hear of our upcoming session "Our JavaOne report" that we will hold on Tuesday, June 16 at Amis? For more info and how to register see this link.
Pardon me for that shameless plug. Please read on for the rest of the article
About a year ago, during JavaOne 2008, Geertjan Wielenga and I created NetBeans modules for JBoss RichFaces support. Last week we updated the modules so now version 3.3.0.GA of RichFaces is supported. I updated the components palette with the newest a4j and rich tags. Geertjan introduced some new images for the palette entries, which now look like this
