Appropriate for all courses in Java programming with JavaServer Faces (JSF), and many intermediate-to-advanced level courses on Java frameworks that are being updated to include JSF coverage.
Using JavaServer Faces (JSF), Java developers can build world-class Web user interfaces virtually without writing code. At the same time, JSF can help them simplify a wide range of complex tasks–from separating presentation and business logic to managing configuration. In Core JavaServer Faces, renowned Java developers David Geary and Cay Horstmann teach experienced Java developers all they need to create production-quality software with JSF 1.0. Geary (Graphic Java) and Horstmann (Core Java) systematically introduce JSF’s tags, the basic building blocks of JSF development. Students learn how to set up the JSF programming environment, connect JSF tags to application logic, provide navigation amongst pages, convert and validate input, and more. Then, using realistic, non-trivial code examples, the authors introduce more advanced tasks: creating custom converters and validators, handling events, sharing common content among multiple pages, building custom components, connecting to databases and external services, even supporting wireless clients. The book ends with a “How do I” chapter that answers students’ most common questions about JSF development. Also included: helpful notes on debugging, logging, and more. Like all Core Series books, Core JavaServer Faces is both a no-nonsense tutorial and a comprehensive reference: the fastest, most effective pathway to deep, practical mastery.

JavaServer Faces promises to bring rapid user-interface development to server-side Java. It allows developers to painlessly write server-side applications without worrying about the complexities of dealing with browsers and Web servers. It also automates low-level, boring details like control flow and moving code between web forms and business logic.
JavaServer Faces was designed to support drag and drop development of server-side applications," but you can also think of it as a conceptual layer on top of servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP). Experienced JSP developers will find that JavaServer Faces provides much of the plumbing that they currently have to implement by hand. If you already use a server-side framework such as Struts, you will find that JavaServers Faces uses a similar architecture, but is more flexible and extensible. JavaServer Faces also comes with server-side components and an event model, which are fundamentally similar to the same concepts in Swing.
JavaServer Faces is quickly becoming the standard Web-application framework. Core JavaServer Faces is the one book you need to master this powerful and time-saving technology.
Without assuming knowledge of JSP and servlets, Core JavaServer Faces:

Book Description Pearson Education (US), United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 234 x 173 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. JavaServer Faces is a Web application framework -- similar to Jakarta Struts -- that gives application developers access to custom components that facilitate the creation of rich user interfaces. JSF also provides Integrated Development Environment (IDE) vendors with a standard upon which to base their IDEs. In the Core tradition, this new book aims to be THE tutorial and reference for experienced programmers who need to learn this exciting new technology. Although J2EE is still the most popular platform for developing Web applications, Microsoft s has gained market share over the past two years. J2EE is arguably more powerful, but , is generally regarded as easier to use. J2EE currently lacks: a rich component model that makes it easy to develop custom components and an IDE (like Visual Studio) that facilitates Web application development. That s where JSF enters the equation, and this book aims to be the most authoritative treatment of the topic -- a must-have for any serious J2EE programmer. Bookseller Inventory # PEA9780131463059
