David Heffelfinger,

I would like to know about NetBeans used with JSF. Can you share some of your thoughts about JSF with NetBeans that may or may not be in the book?

Thanks in advance!

NetBeans has excellent JSF capabilities. The most notable of them is the Visual Web JSF tool, which is covered in the book.

Additionally, with NetBeans, JSF navigation rules can be declared graphically, without having to manually configure the faces-config.xml file.

Also NetBeans has the ability to generate JSF CRUD applications from existing JPA entities, which in turn can be generated from existing database schemas.

Other NetBeans JSF features include automatically adding JSF managed beans to faces-config.xml and code completion capabilities inside JSPs.

David
