This article is based on, and contains excerpts from, the book Pro JSF:
Building Rich Internet Components by Jonas Jacobi and John Fallows, published
by Apress. Book is available on fine bookstores and Amazon.
In our previous article - "Rich Internet Components with JavaServer Faces"
(JDJ, Vol. 10, issue 11) - we discussed how JavaServer Faces can fulfill new
presentation requirements without sacrificing application developer
productivity building Rich Internet Applications (RIA). We discussed how JSF
component writers can utilize technologies, such as AJAX and Mozilla XUL, to
At DevCon5 in Santa Clara Peter Lubbers, founder of the San Francisco HTML5
User Group, gave a keynote, titled The HTML5 Connectivity Revolution. For his
presentation Peter used a WebSocket enabled presentation tool built by
Kaazing, called Presso.
Presso serves as a prime example for the types of apps you can build using
real-time Web technologies. Peter’s presentation could be followed along by
the audience on their tablets and laptops. As Peter was advancing the slides,
attendees saw the same animation on their screens. Presso also features a

In our previous JDJ article - Rich Internet Components with JavaServer Faces
- we discussed how JavaServer Faces can fulfill new presentation requirements
without sacrificing application developer productivity building Rich Internet
Applications (RIA). We discussed how JSF component writers can utilize
technologies, such as AJAX and Mozilla XUL, to provide application developers
with rich, interactive and reusable components.
In order to use AJAX and Mozilla XUL with JSF, component writers have to make
sure to provide any resource files need by these technologies, such as
This is our last article in a series of four that have been introducing the
concepts of creating AJAX-enabled JavaServer Faces (JSF) components. In this
article we are going to summarize and encapsulate the concepts that were
introduced in the three previous JDJ articles starting with the "Rich
Internet Components with JavaServer Faces" (Vol. 10, issue 11), and design a
Google-like JDJ InputSuggest component.
We will show you how to use Mabon to create a simple and powerful input
component with built-in suggest functionality similar to what Google Suggest
provides. To make it ea... (more)
