The web is everywhere. And today's software often uses a web interface to use it from any place - via intranet within a company or via internet worldwide. Java is a well established programming language, not only for business critical applications, but for web applications too. This way, it is a good choice to use Java for the web.
JavaServer Faces is a web framework built upon the Java Servlet technology which makes it easy to construct a UI from a set of reusable UI components. It provides a simple model for wiring client-generated events to server-side application code. Depending on the developers preference, the client side can be constructed using tags which hides most of that HTML stuff, or it can build up almost with HTML, flavored with some small special markers.
This book introduces you to web development using Java and JSF, which you can use to build complete, small to comprehensive size applications. The goal of this book is to create a good foundation in web development and take the reader to a more sophisticated level. To pursue this goal, related Java EE technologies like persistence (JPA), CDI, container based security, WebSockets, test tools and more are discussed.
This is a living book. From time to time I'm going to add or update content. Once purchased, you are able to download all future updates without extra charge.
Enjoy reading and stay tuned!
