From the Back Cover

JavaServer Faces (JSF) is the standard Java EE technology for building web user interfaces. It provides a powerful framework for developing server-side applications, allowing you to cleanly separate visual presentation and application logic. JSF 2.0 is a major upgrade, which not only adds many useful features but also greatly simplifies the programming model by using annotations and "convention over configuration" for common tasks. To help you quickly tap into the power of JSF 2.0, the third edition of "Core JavaServer(TM) Faces" has been completely updated to make optimum use of all the new features. The book includes
  • Three totally new chapters on using Facelets tags for templating, building composite components, and developing Ajax applications
  • Guidance on building robust applications with minimal hand coding and maximum productivity-without requiring any knowledge of servlets or other low-level "plumbing"
  • A complete explanation of the basic building blocks-from using standard JSF tags, to working with data tables, and converting and validating input
  • Coverage of advanced tasks, such as event handling, extending the JSF framework, and connecting to external services
  • Solutions to a variety of common challenges, including notes on debugging and troubleshooting, in addition to implementation details and working code for features that are missing from JSF
  • Proven solutions, hints, tips, and "how-tos" show you how to use JSF effectively in your development projects
"Core JavaServer(TM) Faces, Third Edition, " provides everything you need to master the powerful and time-saving features of JSF 2.0 and is the perfect guide for programmers developing Java EE 6 web apps on Glassfish or another Java EE 6-compliant application servers, as well as servlet runners such as Tomcat 6.

Loved this book.

It is very clear and easy to follow, they give examples for NEtbeans or Eclipse users and also for Tomcat or Glassfish users. This is amazing as other books just marry to 1 IDE or 1 server container and let all the other users f*** off (I'm looking at you terrible Murach's series).

You feel the book adapts to you not that you have to adapt to the book.

They give a great explanation on the MVC pattern and when JSF is useful.

An update to the JSF version 1.1 book I have. I like the way things are explained in the earlier edition, so, it's a no brainer why I decide to go with this book for JSF 2.x. :-)

This book was terrible. The setup explanation was so terrible that I spent HOURS just trying to get the sample code to run. I would rather jump off a bridge then ever buy a book from these authors again. STAY AWAY

Good coverage of the fundamentals necessary for a solid foundation.

The flow could be improved. At times the authors jumped from point x to point y assuming the readers can see the logic. But I found them to be very long jumps. Still a very good book.

For entry level JSF developers the book would be extremely helpful. It takes you through the basics very well, and explains it in a simple concise mannger. However, if you are an intermediate to advanced JSF developer the book does not help much in understanding the deepers dos and don'ts of JSF - this while about 50% of the book are covering the very basics of the JSF basics.

Sections that would be helpful in the book are:
1. Developing for proper handling of the back button.
2. Older JSF issues in rebinding in ViewScope to the already initialized properties and how to circumvent.
3. Handling forms (and form resubmission) and guidelines on when to redirect, link and post (related to back button).
4. The FacesContext and all its glory

In short - a very nice book for those starting with JSF - if you however are looking for the JSF secrets and expert advice - then this book is not for you.
