Master the Java EE 8 and JSF (JavaServer Faces) APIs and web framework with this practical, projects-driven guide to web development. This book combines theoretical background with a practical approach by building four real-world applications. By developing these JSF web applications, you'll take a tour through the other Java EE technologies such as JPA, CDI, Security, WebSockets, and more.
In Practical JSF in Java EE 8, you will learn to use the JavaServer Faces web framework in Java EE 8 to easily construct a web-based user interface from a set of reusable components. Next, you add JSF event handling and then link to a database, persist data, and add security and the other bells and whistles that the Java EE 8 platform has to offer.
After reading this book you will have a good foundation in Java-based web development and will have increased your proficiency in sophisticated Java EE 8 web development using the JSF framework.
