When I was updating our Getting Started with JSF page, I had cause to visit, and found that the long awaited new site is available.  Please check it out at <>. Congratulations to the JCP team for pushing through and getting it done!

Also, I've published the data sheet we handed out at the JavaOne booth for Sun’s Java EE SDK.  The datasheet is available at <>.

Please try the JavaEE SDK download, it includes the latest implementation of JSF2.0, and some nice, ready to run samples.  These include

  • scrumtoys: a complete app developed for us by Yara and Vinicius Senger and a team at Globalcode.

  • basic-ezcomp: a starter app for composite components, developed by Jim Driscoll.

  • basic-ajax: a starter app for the very smooth Ajax intergation in JSF2, also developed by Jim Driscoll

Back in March, I was able to deliver on a long-ago-made promise to make the JSF EG discussions observable by everyone.  One must accept the legal terms in order to view the discussions, but the process is simple and to date at least 70 individual have registered to observe the list.  Dan Allen, the JBoss representitive on the JSR-314 group, and a stalwart advocate for open-ness, suggested we promote the existing process for taking in public feedback on the spec: send an email to We'll spice this up with the guarantee that one of the EG members will moderate mails sent to this list and forward them on to the EG.  The responsibility for being list moderator will rotate among EG members and will start with Dan Allen himself.

Now that the spec has passed Final Approval Ballot, it's just a matter of time before the official spec is downloadable from In the meantime, you can get it at <> Sun's Mojarra implementation is very solid, and is integrated into Glassfish V3 Preview, along with NetBeans ready sample projects.  In addition, the Mojarra Implementation runs just fine on Tomcat and Jetty and can be downloaded at <>.

Don't be shy, you can consider as the posting address to the mailing list, which is now formally moderated by the EG.

Since the JavaOne calendar seemed to work out, I'm doing it again with my upcoming Jazoon attendence.

I'm giving two sessions.

Times are local to Zürich.
