Now run the application on Tomcat server and open it in your favourite browser by pointing it to “http: Integration of RichFaces into Maven Project. Go to the folder with unzipped earlier RichFaces binary files and open lib folder.

Using RichFaces with JSF 2

For that reason, all it does is collect and display input data. However, in typical usage the components are not difficult to set up, with most attributes having reasonable defaults.

The City AutoComplete component lets you key in a city name. You can click on the Accordion items on the left for basic component instructions.

Version 4 has introduced changed and additional defaults, and it’s worthwhile to check the documentation. Now go to “jsf-app” folder, it contains a project descriptor pom. In project JavaSource folder create a new managed bean with name user in demo package and paste there the following simple code:.


Richfaces In this tutorial we will. In this case, as you can see from Listing 5, I’m just using text. If you also want to allow the user to key in date values, set the enableManualInput attribute to true. In this tutorial we’ll see how to develop tutoria, rich pages using Eclipse Editor. Notice that all components have a rich: For the demo, I used resource bundle text for the Info tab content, and Collapsible Panels for the Result tab content.

However in a real world application you should rather register the input fields with a Bean and add an action for example on the submit button.

This richfaecs has demonstrated only a few, but you should have gotten a feel for how things work under RichFaces, and seen several components that could be useful in many applications.
