This book is about using JavaServer Faces to create and deploy interactive applications delivered to end users via a browser interface. JavaServer Faces is the component-based technology enabling easy development of such applications, especially applications of the type commonly needed in enterprise environments. JavaServerFaces: Introduction by Example is a to-the-point, 250-page introduction to an important technology that every Java Enterprise Edition programmer should know and be able to use.
JavaServer Faces: Introduction by Example takes you through building and deploying servlet-based web pages built around JavaServer Faces, Facelets, managed Java Beans, and prebuilt user-interface components. You'll learn to build user interfaces that run in the browser, to display data drawn from corporate databases, accept user input, deal with errors and exceptions, and more.
