When Oracle Corp. bought Sun Microsystems Inc. and took Java under its wing, some thought that JavaServer Faces (JSF) would go the way of Latin and Sanskrit. Contrary to those predictions, however, Oracle’s focus on enterprise didn’t shove JSF into the background in favor of other technologies. Instead, Oracle continues to promote JSF as a way to handle front-end development.
“In April 2011, we started work on the next major revision of the JSF specification, version 2.2,” says Ed Burns, consulting member of the Technical Staff at Oracle and the specification lead for JSF. “Just this week, we released a milestone 1 snapshot implementation of that specification, which is still very much in active development.”
