Implementing Web-Based UIs with JavaServer Faces Posted: Dec 3, 2002 8:09 AM

JavaWorld has published an article by David Geary that introduces JavaServer Faces and explores its fundamental concepts.

Here's an excerpt:

In a nutshell, JSF eases Web-based application development because it:

* Lets you create user interfaces from a set of standard, reusable server-side components

* Provides a set of JSP tags to access those components

* Transparently saves state information and repopulates forms when they redisplay

* Provides a framework for implementing custom components

* Encapsulates event handling and component rendering so you can use standard JSF components or custom components to support markup languages other than HTML

* Lets tool vendors develop IDEs for a standard Web application framework

Besides being a conceptual combination of Struts and Swing, JSF is a direct competitor to Microsoft's WebForms. The frameworks are very similar, both in concept and implementation. And because JSF represents a standard for Java-based Web application frameworks, tool vendors can concentrate on developing IDEs for JSF instead of developing an IDE for one of approximately 35 existing Java-based Web application frameworks, including Struts.
