Super-Charge JSF AJAX Data Fetch

In our last article - "JSF and AJAX" (JDJ, Vol. 11, issue 1) - we discussed how JavaServer Faces component writers can take advantage of the new Weblets Open Source project (http://weblets.dev.java.net) to serve resources such as JavaScript libraries, icons, and CSS files directly from a Java Archive (JAR) without impacting the application developer.

Craig McClanahan is mentoring the project during the Apache incubation. The Apache MyFaces community is also involved in the project to assist with graduation from the incubator, into t... (more)
