A new version of PrettyFaces for JSF1.1 (historical support) is now available for download. This version is feature-complete, but we are looking for feedback on compatibility and functionality that may be broken with various implementations, so please post comments!
New versions of PrettyFaces for JSF1.2 and JSF2.0 are now available for download:
Minor Release: 20090415
- Added optional <action onPostback=”false”> boolean flag to prevent action methods from being called on form postback. Defaults to true;
- Added optional <query-param decode=”false”> to prevent java.net.URLDecode.decode() from being called on a specific managed query-parameter. Defaults to true;
- Added unit tests for several critical classes.
- Minor to moderate refactoring of PrettyFilter/PrettyContext
Minor Release: 20090331
- Servlet forwards are working
Minor Release: 20090319
- Managed query-params now accept multiple parameters of the same name: E.g.: String names — would accept a list of parameters (with the same name) from the request
- Enhanced configuration loading — PrettyFaces now looks for /META-INF/pretty-config.xml by default, in addition to accepting a comma-separated list of user config-files in the web.xml init param: com.ocpsoft.pretty.CONFIG_FILES — submitted by Aleksei Valikov
- JSP support for standard attributes on the pretty:link tag has been fixed. The pretty link will now accept style=’mystyle’ and other attributes — from Derek Hollis at OcpSoft
Setting up PrettyFaces is simple.
“The community was speaking, but until recently, nobody was listening.”
A lot has changed since May 15, 2001, when the first ballot review of the JSF 1.0 framework was just beginning. To this day, Sun’s flagship web-application framwork has been an uncompromising box of tricks and gotchas, with little community adoption. This has been mostly due to its relatively developer-unfriendly nature; however, the second phase is coming, and with JSF2.0 peeking out from the edge of its nest, a new life is beginning to show.
It didn’t make it…
Well folks, for those of you who were hoping JSF 2.0 would contain the URL rewriting tools that many had asked for, unfortunately it looks like it’s not going to make it into the official spec. Bookmarking a page, or pages in JSF has been a heavily requested feature, but according to this discussion
, is currently out of scope.
But that’s ok…
JSF Bookmark extension has been updated for JSF 2.0, and is ready for public preview (download below).
