JSCAPE and SoftAspects have announced the release of WebGalileo Faces 3.0. WebGalileo Faces 3.0 is a suite of Ajax-enabled Java Server Faces (JSF) components for streamlined development of Rich Internet Applications. Using WebGalileo Faces components, developers can create web based applications in a fraction of the time required and with fewer errors. This time savings allows developers to deploy applications much faster and focus more of their efforts on the business logic of the application versus the technical details of writing software. WebGalileo Faces 3.0 includes several new components including those for creating graphs, flow charts and maps using Google Maps. WebGalileo Faces supports a wide range of IDEs, with built-in support for Sun Java Studio Creator, IBM Rational Application Developer, Oracle JDeveloper and Eclipse IDE. Other features and enhancements include:

Very nice, demo is very impressive. Seems even more responsive than ICEFaces, which is great too. If Sun had some spare millions lying around they should just buy out a quality suite like this and offer it as part of the JSF RI, as an out-of-the-box answer to .Net's Atlas.
Iam able to log in to the demo but if i press search it takes a long time to paint the screen, till then i see a blank screen only . Is this a performance issue with JSF component?
Nice demo and components. Yet I find these to be very sluggish... Is it just me ? Or the Slashdot effect ?
yes, the slashdot effect of a two user load
tree table did not work in FF - I got some js errors and some servlet stack trace.....
That is the known issue with FF ealier than 2.x. WebGalileo Faces guy. Regards.
That is the known issue with FF ealier than 2.x.Nice, and the topic says "WebGalileo Faces 3.0, JSF component lib, has been released". What am i looking wrong here ?.
WebGalileo Faces guy.
The suite looks very nice but I wonder why I would buy something that is also not open source having ICEfaces or ajax4jsf. Generally I try to avoid the use of not open source libraries.
The suite looks very nice but I wonder why I would buy something that is also not open source having ICEfaces or ajax4jsf.I agreed with ya. I used their product in my previous project prior to other commercial products became open source such as ICEfaces. It is a nice product, BUT if i need to use JSF again I will definite go for the free JSF library. I think there is an option the get the source with WebGalileo but it is $$$$$$.

My thoughts too: slow, slow... with unnecessary callbacks to server (dual list), double click for table sorting?... The premise of every good web UI is speed. Then come usability and features, which are irrelevant if UI is sluggish. See Google. Btw. the only JSF component suite that made impression to me is RCFaces (after ADF faces which were revolutionary but are practically dead now).
My thoughts too: slow, slow... with unnecessary callbacks to server (dual list), double click for table sorting?...Why do you think ADF is dead. Besides that there are more than those options, RCFaces, IceFaces, Tomahawk, ADF, Trinidad, Tobago, WebGalileo just to name a few, I am sure there are a lot more than those.

There are so many... it is hard to keep track. I took a look at RCFaces based on your recommendation and it does look pretty good.... Thanks
