The new open-source rich-client components include autocomplete, Google and Yahoo Maps mashups, a live progress bar, a PayPal buy-it-now component, a progress bar-enabled file upload, and dynamic text and validators. These components can be used with any JSF 1.2-compatible Web container.
Sun's JSF team recently released two rich-client AJAX component libraries. One library is based on JSF 1.1, and the other on JSF 1.2. The libraries can be used with any Web container implementing the respective JSF version.
According to JSF spec lead Ed Burns,
The components in this release are:
Autocomplete text field
Google and Yahoo Map mashup
PayPal "Buy it now" component
Netflix style "rating" component
Live progressbar-enabled file upload
Dynamic text label
Short videos demonstrating each component are also available.
