This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
JavaServer Faces JSF is a framework for building web-based user interfaces in Java. Like Swing, it provides a set of standard widgets (buttons, hyperlinks, checkboxes, and so on), a model for creating custom widgets, a way to process client-generated events (like changing the value of a text box or clicking on a button), and excellent tool support. Since web-based applications, unlike their Swing cousins, must often appease multiple clients (desktop browsers, phones, PDAs, and so on), JSF has a powerful architecture for displaying components in different ways. It also has extensible facilities for validating input (like the length of a field) and converting objects to and from strings for display. Faces can also automatically keep your user interface components in sync with your business model objects.

Not actually. In fact JSF is isn't done yet. Currently all they have is a Second Public Review Draft. It might take sometime for them to come up with a final draft. So, if you want to use it for some live projects, you have to wait for some more time. The project which I'm working now is called as "JSF". Just one day out of curiosity I typed JSF in google and made a search. That was when I came to know about the Java Server Faces!
