Gateway Software Symposium

Exploring the JavaServer Faces Ecosystem
This session examines the ecosystem of products built on JavaServer Faces.
We start with a discussion of why JSF is significant and explain how it lays the foundation for a range of new products. We then look at the IDE offerings from major industry players, such as Sun, IBM, and Oracle. Next, we examine the products from smaller vendors and open source organizations, such as component suites and additional toolkits and frameworks, examining the specific features and benefits that these products provide. Finally, we look at other potential product opportunities and examine ways to get involved.
Prerequisite: Basic familiarity with web application development in Java.
