Course Description:

JSF is a JEE technology that focuses on simplifying the building of Web based user interfaces in Java. It builds on existing technologies, such as Servlets/JSP, but solves many of the issues that arise when using them directly. It does this by providing a standard component based user interface (UI) framework that can be leveraged by tools to provide a rich and easy to use development environment. This course will get you up to speed with JSF 2 in a very short time. It includes all the important concepts, as well as numerous hands on labs that will have you building working JSF applications very quickly. It covers all the important architectural concepts, as well as providing practical instruction on how to use the many capabilities of the JSF framework. It includes coverage of all important capabilities that are new in JSF 2, including the use of Facelets, and using the new JSF 2 annotations. The course includes a broad coverage of the most important JSF capabilities, including the JSF architecture, working with managed beans, the JSF Expression Language, creating JSF pages with facelets and/or JSP, the JSF core and HTML tag libraries, data tables, validation, and conversion. After learning this material, you'll be ready to use JSF to create your own solutions in the most demanding situations.
