TouchFaces is a new subproject of PrimeFaces targeting the mobile devices mainly iphone. Applications created with TouchFaces have the native look and feel of an IPhone applications and still benefit from the Java/JSF infrastructure. In addition TouchFaces depends on the PrimeFaces UI so ajax is built-in. There's a 10 minute getting started screencast available online.

If this indeed works as advertised it can be a really cool thing! I'm going to check this out soon :)
Wow thanks for the great article. I am highly interested in application development on iPhones. TouchFaces gives us the great opportunity to try something new in application development based on Java/JSF. Oh and thanks for this amazing screencast, it will definitely help me. I will be keeping an eye on your blog and waiting for other great articles to appear in the nearest future. Sincerely, Kevin Tickson from iphone development
Here is a tutorial for iPhone development that uses the Trinidad JSF components: http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub/articles/huang-iphone.html
Small issue. This is a webapplication not a Iphone application. And i see no reason to get all fired up about a new webapplication framework, when there are so many alternatives already out there in the field which can do the same.
Initial demos are deployed online so you can check them out with your iphone. A sample language translator app is added. http://126.96.36.199:8080/prime-showcase/touch/index.jsf
