Hello,

I had never heard of JSF until two weeks ago when I was told I had to develop a web application under that technology. I fired up NetBeans 6.1, did some tutorials and today I decided to start implementing. I tried doing the basics that I used when programming on JSP but I got stuck at the very start .

How can I make page templates/layouts? Do I need to download anything else? I've read several posts and/or websited where some tools where named, Tiles, Facelets...

Thanks for your help

I can highly recommend you Facelets. It is going to be part of the upcoming JSF 2.0 as the default view technology.

Their homepage https://facelets.dev.java.net contains good documentation https://facelets.dev.java.net/nonav/docs/dev/docbook.html how to get started with Facelets.

Great,

I'll try that and if I have any other questions I'll come back here.

Thanks!

Hello,

I've successfully set up NetBeans with Facelets, I've created the popular number guess app but I wanted to know if you had a source of examples or tutorials or anything that can get me started with Facelets.

I've done the xhtml template but when adding components in the client pages I get lost.

Any help?

Thanks

After a 2 hour search I found this web-log:

http://blogs.sun.com/poting/entry/use_facelets_support_modules_on

That's exactly what I was looking for!

Thanks to everyone for your help!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
