I'm pleased announce the third installment in the series on Facelets: Inside Facelets - Part 3: Templating and Re-Use. Facelets is an alternative to JSP for defining views in JSF, and allows for Tapestry-style views as well as templating.
Here's an excerpt:
"For any view technology to succeed, it must have some aspect of templating and re-use that's both easy to use and understand. Facelets technology solves this issue in a way that is ideal for JavaServer Faces while keeping that sense of familiarity to traditional, tag-based user interfaces. This article covers the possible ways to increase re-use and simplify maintenance on your JavaServer Faces project.
When people first start creating web pages, they often find themselves repeating content across multiple files. As a developer, this can be frustrating when your object-oriented tendencies kick in. Wouldn't it be nice to simply maintain that content in one spot?"
