News: JSFToolbox 3.0 for Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 Now Available

  1. JSFToolbox 3.0, a suite of JavaServer Faces design and coding extensions for Dreamweaver, is now available. This release includes support for Adobe Dreamweaver CS4, Mac OS X, the ICEfaces open source Ajax framework, the Apache MyFaces Trinidad component library, and better performance and stability. JSFToolbox also supports Facelets, JBoss Seam, Apache MyFaces Tomahawk, and standard JSF, so users can now choose from over 300 different UI components while developing with JavaServer Faces in Dreamweaver. JSFToolbox extends the Dreamweaver design-time experience to JSF, including features such as managed bean code hints, message bundle support, live view, syntax auto-complete, drag-and-drop toolbars, visual tags, property inspectors, context-sensitive help, validation reports, and more. To learn more about the JSFToolbox suite and how Dreamweaver can be used effectively for JSF design and development, please check out our podcast from the JSFOne conference.
  2. Ok, can someone from Adobe provide the benefits of using this, instead of something like NetBeans 6.5?

    Someone from Adobe will rather promote flex than jsf, never mind. With Netbeans you can design only quick and dirty admin page, but not enough for well designed public services site, were Dreamweaver was always positioned to address such requirement. Good progress with JSFToolbox!

    Seam is supported but not RichFaces nor Ajax4jsf? I think more people, who are using Seam, use RichFaces than ICEfaces.

    Hello and thanks for your feedback. Our next milestone (version 3.5) planned for June 2009 will include support for JBoss RichFaces/Ajax4jsf. Best regards, Ian Hlavats JSFToolbox for Dreamweaver
  6. These kind of professional tools are very critical for serious enterprise class applications, they just speed up the whole process. Your graphics team can really work with dev team and this is just too good from productivity standpoint. Excellent work for JSF stack.
  7. RichFaces and Ajax4JSF are one of the most best frameworks or projects happening in Open Source. Support for RF is very critical. Netbeans 6.5 also has excellent support for JSF development but when it comes to WYSIWYG editors Dreamweaver is the best. Also what is the support level for JSF2.0, that is something which is getting very popular.

  10. Facelets templates[ Go to top ]

    Hi Ian. Do you at least support Facelets templates?
  11. Re: Facelets templates[ Go to top ]

    Hi Ian.

    Do you at least support Facelets templates?
    Hi Seppo, Yes, we support Facelets templates. With our Facelets plugin Dreamweaver can render Facelets ui:include, ui:insert, ui:define, and ui:composition tags as they will be displayed in the browser. In addition, you can combine Facelets templates with Dreamweaver templates to take advantage of a powerful set of design-time features for rapid web development. For example, we provide a Facelets Dreamweaver template document type that you can use to create an advanced CSS-based XHTML document template containing reusable JSF view elements such as headers, footers, and menus. Our own site (http://www.jsftoolbox.com) was developed using this approach, which allows optimal use of JSF design-time artifacts in a Dreamweaver environment. One of the great things about Dreamweaver CS4 is that Adobe introduced the WebKit browser into the new "Live View", which allows you to preview and edit your live pages running on the server directly from Dreamweaver's design environment. This is great for seeing how your Facelets templates will look at runtime without leaving your IDE. With the new Live Code view you can also see what the generated HTML for your JSF page will look like, giving you excellent insight into the behavior of your JSF pages and giving you more control over their final appearance. Hope it helps, Ian
