News: NetAdvantage for JSF 2007 Volume 1 released-JSF/AJAX components

  1. Infragistics has announced the immediate availability of the NetAdvantage for JSF 2007 Volume 1, a comprehensive set of AJAX-enabled JavaServer Faces (JSF) components for building commercial class user interfaces for J2EE applications. The new full-feature charting component in NetAdvantage for JSF renders the most commonly used basic 2D or 3D charts, a feature developers usually have to purchase separately. In addition, the toolset includes all major UI controls required to build rich user experiences on Web 2.0 platform, including a hierarchical grid, calendar, menu, tree, tab, list bar and input controls. NetAdvantage for JSF 2007 Volume 1 provides the ability for teams to build high performance, scalable J2EE web applications. In addition to the new charting capabilities, this new version of NetAdvantage for JSF exclusively provides hierarchical grid views with Excel export; custom cell editor with the ability to specify custom editors for any cell in the grid; and grid export which easily shares data with other applications by exporting data from the grid to a standard CSV file. Key benefits include: Superior user experience - Deliver high performance, scalable, responsive J2EE Web applications with AJAX-enabled components that can load and handle large data transfers without post backs. Reduced development time - Reusable JSF components provide development teams with pre-built, quality-tested UI components, allowing companies to focus on the business logic and significantly improve application time-to-market. Application-wide Styling - Deploy rich, high fidelity line-of-business applications with the familiar look of the most popular UIs, using the professionally designed built-in themes provided. The look and feel of the components can be easily controlled using standard CSS style sheets.

  2. Congratulation for the new release But i think that ur bussiness model will not gonna work (i hope i am wrong) but how can u convince me to pay $$$$ while i have adfFaces(apache trinidad),ice faces,richFaces(redhat),RCFaces(rcfaces.sf.net) for free by the way most of them were commercial products and of superb quality so open source it or quit the jsf market (it is just an opinion as i cannot dictate what to do with ur assets)
  3. but how can u convince me to pay $$$$ while i have adfFaces(apache trinidad),ice faces,richFaces(redhat),RCFaces(rcfaces.sf.net) for free
    Maybe ... because:
    - trinidad is immature
    - icefaces is buggy (I never use icefaces yet, I read that in RichFaces forum)
    - richFaces is lack of some components like calendar, menu bar, a sortable, column-resizable, paginatable data table (data scroller isn't paginatable because a whole list of rows is required for the data table) (but I like richFaces and waiting for the version 3.1 with more components)
    - RCFaces doesn't have a developer guide document (or is it hidden somewhere that I don't know?) as RichFaces does
    However, I can't afford this NetAdvantage and have to use richfaces, ajax4jsf and rcfaces if I can apply the a4j skin to rcfaces components.

    ADF Faces really sucks, IMHO is the worst implementation of JSF, the UI Interface is very ugly and isn't compatible with ajax4jsf/richfaces I've looked demos of NetAdvantage and I liked so much, nice ajaxied ui components, really cool but, for me, the best combo for faces is: - MyFaces - Ajax4JSF - RichFaces - Facelets spend money on $$$$ jsf components? no thanks :)
  5. Windows-based installer?![ Go to top ]

    I'm very disappointed they used a windows-only installer to package the product. I really wanted to evaluate it as the announcement sounded quite promising but that keeps me back for now (not even cabextract could pack it out). I'm also amazed why should a java product get packaged in a platform-dependent way..
  6. Re: Windows-based installer?![ Go to top ]

    I found similar problems with the demo version: Non-sollicited popups, no easy to use. The netAdvantage hierarchical grid doesn't accept more than 2 levels. Seriously !!! Come on guys ! I think they've missed an opportunity to sell their products. Finally we went for a javascript hierarchical grid : 200 $US named : dhtmlxGrid Far from the thousands dollars claimed to use the NetAdvantage components. Rachid.
  7. I for one welcome an addition of a commercial suite of JSF components. For projects that can spend the $$$, a set of fully tested and supported components is a good option to have.

    I agree with that. Software doesn't always have to be free. Most people here are professional develops who get paid for what they build. Why wouldn't Infragistics be allowed to receive some money for their hard work?
  9. Eating your own dog food?[ Go to top ]

    That's quite interesting how people are trying to sell a product which is obviously not working. The demo on their own site is down. I can't really understand how clients can do anything with your product when even you, creators of the toolkit can't make it work?
