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 JCP.org. In the meantime, you can get it at <https://javaserverfaces-spec-public.dev.java.net/files/documents/1936/134499/jsf-spec-2.0-all.zip> 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 <https://javaserverfaces.dev.java.net/download.html>.
