About This Video

  • Develop an attractive and functional UI for your application with PrimeFaces and other technologies

  • Secure your implementations with Tomcat and web.xml

  • Use JSF template and CSS to make your UI look the way you want it to

In Detail

PrimeFaces is a leading frontend framework that helps you build a user interface which is flexible without a fuss. It's one of the fastest ways to create great looking and fully functional websites. When coupled with JavaServer Faces (JSF) you will be able to not only create websites very quickly, but also ones that are extensible and maintainable.

The tutorial starts off with configuring the required components: PrimeFaces, NetBeans, MongoDB, MongoVUE, JSF, and Spring. You then go on to develop a very basic JSF and PrimeFaces UI for your website using Spring and Mongo running on a Tomcat server. Next you will upgrade the website using more features like the creation of the data administration pages and securing the administration pages. Finally you will use CSS and JSF templates to finish off a functional database-driven website with a beautiful and neat interface.

This set of videos will show you how to take full advantage of PrimeFaces by coupling it with JSF, Spring, and MongoDB to create a user interface that meets your demands of flexibility and extensibility.

Primefaces with mongoDB Tutorial..

Comments about oreilly Building an App UI with PrimeFaces:

I purchased this video, and I was very pleased with the tutorial. It packed a lot of material into a relatively short period of time. I had to pause the video repeatedly throughout the steps to follow along. I liked the video tutorial because it helped integrate many different technologies to create a web application. Without a course like this, it becomes very confusing how to put all these different technologies together. I think given the complexity of the integration of many technologies more time could be given to explain the concepts with more depth using possibly slides and deeper code explanations. This would add considerable length to the video, but it would be worth it to the viewer as the depth of understanding would increase considerably. Overall, I'm very pleased with the purchase and look forward to more in depth videos on creating full web applications using Primefaces as the front end and various back end databases like mongoDB and other SQL databases.

Comments about oreilly Building an App UI with PrimeFaces:

Hi, my impression about this video course

- Good tutorial for learn to build an app with PrimeFaces + Spring + MongoDB + Netbeans
- Very good presentation of the course (interactive, with source code, etc)
- Good explanations, step by step
- No errors

- For basic and intermediate level, not for advanced users
- Audio is good, but maybe a little more clear would have been better
- Perhaps a bit short
