JSF Summit Early Bird Discount ends Sept 21st

In case you haven't heard, JSFCentral and No Fluff Just Stuff have teamed up once again to launch the second annual JSF Summit this December 1st-4th in Sunny Orlando, FL. There's less than two weeks left before the $400 Early Bird discount ends.

This conference will focus on core skills, development tools, frameworks, third-party components, and the latest industry trends. Sessions will target the needs of application developers, solution architects, and project managers. Some of the key topics covered include: JSF 2.0, Seam, Spring integration, Ajax support, portlet development, testing, and working with component suites.

We've got an all-star lineup including Ed Burns, Martin Marinschek, Dan Allen, Pete Muir, Michael Freedman, Ted Goddard, Keith Donald, myself, and many others. Here are a few of the sessions, some of which you'll find nowhere else:

JSF 2: Keeping Progress Coming

This presentation will provide an in-depth introduction to many of the new JSF 2.0 features and will ask of each: Is the currently specified solution sufficient? We'll also consider whether other concerns (paper cuts) have been overlooked?

EZComp: Composite Components in JSF 2.0

This presentation will explain how to use the composite component
feature of JSF 2.0. This feature enables turning any chunk of page
markup into a true reusable JSF UI component, complete with all the
features one expects of a reusable Object Oriented

Spring and JavaServerFaces: approaches to integration

In this session, Keith will demonstrate how JSF developers traditionally use JSF and Spring together, then explore new opportunities for using these two technologies together that can result in significant productivity gains. Attendees will learn the viable approaches to using JSF and Spring together to create rich web applications.

The Best Kept Secrets of Seam, RichFaces, JSF and Facelets

This session discloses best practices, tips and techniques and disclose inside information to save you in a pinch and maximize your use of Seam, RichFaces, JSF and Facelets.

Seam 3, Web Beans and Beyond

This talk covers recent developments in Seam and Web Beans, explains Seam's new foundation based on JSR-299, lays out the roadmap for Seam 3 and gives a brief glimpse at tooling, migration and new initiatives. The talk also features a brief tour of the new Java EE specifications that reside in the core Seam stack: CDI 1.0, JPA 2.0, EJB 3.1 and JSF 2.0.

Did you know that your JSF application is also a portlet?

The Portlet Bridge (JSR 301 or JSR 329) provides a Faces compatible runtime environment in a Java portlet environment enabling a JSF application to simultaneously be published as a web application and a portlet. This talk introduces you to the Portlet Bridge and shows you how to use it in your applications.

Easy Ajax with ICEfaces on JSF 2.0

Ajax is now part of the JSF 2.0 standard, but the easiest way to add Ajax to your application still requires ICEfaces or another JSF component suite. Learn how to use the Ajax features of JSF 2.0, then see how this is automatically provided by ICEfaces, and take it a step further with collaboration features via Ajax Push.

Upgrading to JSF 2

Now that JavaServer Faces (JSF) 2.0 is out, what do you do with that recently completed JSF 1.x application? Like most Java standards, JSF 2.0 strives for backwards compatibility. However, if you want to use new features like simpler UI components, new events, Groovy support, or the built-in Facelets support, you will have to perform some upgrade steps.

JSF Component Behaviors Deep Dive

The JSF component "behavior" model is a new feature introduced in JSF 2.0 in order to facilitate Ajax support. Component behaviors allow commonly used client-side functionality to be bundled into reusable objects that can be associated with arbitrary components. While the JSF specification currently defines only a single component behavior, the component behavior model is designed for extensibility, allowing anyone to create and share their own component behavior implementations.

This year we're also offering a package deal -- conference and travel at one low price. Register for JSF Summit today!
