PrimeFaces is a lightweight open source component suite for Java Server Faces (JSF), a Java-based web application framework. Java developers use PrimeFaces for front end UI development, and it can also be applied to both mobile and web applications. It allows users to customize, create, and further develop application features.
Learning PrimeFaces Extension Development will cover all the skills you require to start developing extended or advanced PrimeFaces applications in an easy manner. It will help you to setup, configure, learn and create Extension components with their various features. From looking at form and editor components, you then move on to deal with time tracking, extended data reporting, image components, and more to discover what the extensions library can offer. Using the JobHub application as its main example, this book will guide you through what you need to know to extend PrimeFaces the way you want to.
