PrimeFaces LiveLessons provides an introductory tutorial on this popular third-party component library for JSF 2. This beginner’s level training is aimed at developers who already know JSF 2 but who are new to PrimeFaces. These LiveLessons cover an overview of PrimeFaces' capabilities, setting things up to use PrimeFaces, the basic style of programming, and a survey of the components you are most likely to use. It shows the most common usage of the most popular elements but does not discuss every option or cover nearly all of the myriad PrimeFaces components.
