Industry Leading Support for JavaServer Faces Components

Drag and drop JavaServer Faces components to set properties and write code in server-side event handlers -- or parse tags manually if you prefer. Standard JavaServer Faces reference implementation components, including a comprehensive library of JavaServer Faces components such as Table, Calendar, Tree, Tab Set, File Upload, and many more.

Ajax-Enabled JavaServer Faces Components

Create web applications with Ajax-enabled JavaServer Faces components. Encapsulate the JavaScript and complex server-side asynchronous communication within each JavaServer Faces component. Using an Ajax-enabled component is like working with any other component: Drag and drop the component, set properties, and customize server-side event handlers.

Support for Standards

Develop applications with the Visual Web Pack and package them into a Web Archive (WAR). Deploy the Web Archive to any standard Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) containers, such as Java System Application Server, JBoss, BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, Tomcat, and others.
