In today's world, JSF is one of the pivotal technologies for implementing middle- to large-scale web applications. With Trinidad, JSF developers have a powerful open source component framework at their fingertips.
This book introduces Apache MyFaces Trinidad, a powerful JSF component framework and combines it with Seam, the next-generation Web Application Framework to achieve the most comprehensive and effective technology for the development of powerful rich-client web applications.
In this book, you start out by learning where Trinidad comes from and what its aims are. You will learn how Facelets and Seam are used to get the most out of JSF. In addition, you will also learn the often occurring tag attributes, and, in particular, Trinidad's AJAX technology. You will implement login, authorization, navigation, internationalization, polling, and support for browser issues with the help of these technologies. You will then use Seam-gen for deployment.
Next, you will develop a web application example where a series of selected Trinidad components are applied and their capabilities explored. Finally, you will master the Trinidad dialog framework, a key Trinidad technology that allows the application of dialogs.
A step-by-step, practical guide to creating and developing web applications with Trinidad and Seam
The book is a hands-on practical guide that stresses the discussion of code and builds up a sample application that illustrates all the standard UI types covered by Trinidad.
