JSF 2.0: Advanced Topics
This session covers two of the most important features of JSF 2.0: composite components and built-in Ajax.
JSF is a component-base framework. Components are a powerful reuse mechanism, but they were rendered nearly inconsequential in JSF 1.X, because components were so difficult to implement.
JSF 2.0 makes implementing cusomt components easy with a new feature that builds on Facelets and the new resource capabilities in JSF 2.0: composite components. This session shows you how to implement your own components with JSF 2.
Additionally, this session covers the built-in Ajax that comes with JSF 2.0. Come to this session to see how you can easily implement custom components with integrated Ajax capabilities.
Prerequisite: Familiarity with JSF, or other component-based frameworks. Familiarity with Ajax. This session builds on the JSF 2.0 Introduction talk, so it is helpful, although not required, if you attend the intro talk before coming to this session.

A prominent author, speaker, and consultant, David holds a unique qualification as a Java expert: He wrote the best-selling books on both Java component frameworks: Swing and JavaServer Faces. David's Graphic Java Swing was the best-selling Swing book, and is one of the best-selling Java books of all-time, and Core JSF, which David wrote with Cay Horstman, is the best-selling book on JavaServer Faces.
David was one of a handful of experts on the JSF 1.0 Expert Group (EG) that actively defined the standard Java-based web application framework, and David is currently on the JSF 2 Expert Group, helping to vastly improve JSF in version 2.
Besides serving on the JSF and JSTL Expert Groups, David has contributed to open-source projects and he has written questions for two of Sun's Certification Exams: Web Developer Certification and JavaServer Faces Certification. He invented the Struts Template library which was the precursor to Tiles, a popular framework for composing web pages from JSP fragments, was the 2nd Struts committer and contributed to the Apache Shale project.
David has spoken at more than 100 NFJS symposiums since 2003, and he also speaks at other conferences such as TheServerSide Java Symposium, JavaOne, JavaPolis, and JAOO. David has taught at Java University for the past three years, and is a three-time JavaOne rock star.More About David »
