Java server faces
JavaServer Faces (JSF) is a Java-based Web application framework designed to help integrate server-side user interfaces (UIs) during development. JSF includes an API for representing UI components and managing their state, handling events, server-side validation, and data conversion. JSF also includes two JavaServer Pages custom tag libraries. The JSF programming model lets helps developers configure components and create, bind, and store UIs. In this section on JavaServer Faces, we offer news, research and tutorials on using JSF to help develop applications. Learn how JSF lets you build rich internet applications that implement separation of behavior and presentation, allowing Web application developers to focus on individual aspects of a project and use JSF technology to link them together.
