Hello all,

I'm trying to develop a new application that will have two interfaces, one the traditional web client for access on desktop computers and another for mobile devices (cell phones, pdas, ...) I have already searched the web and found some forums about the use of MyFaces WML RenderKit implementation, and saw some info on the ADF Faces WML Render Kit too, but it seams that noone have implemented. My question is: Has anybody developed a JSF application for mobile devices ? Can you share your experience on this topic ? Any advices ?

Thanks,
Bruno.

Have you looked at Facelets? https://facelets.dev.java.net/

They claim to be sensitive to such things.

Hi Tim!

Thanks for the fast reply. Yes, I already looked at facelets, and it's seams to facilitate things by generating well formed XHTML, but there's another step to be taken, the conversion to the Mobile Profile, I'm looking if I can format the output to meet that profile.

Thanks again,
Bruno

There is also WURFL framework that support hundreds of different mobile profiles. And can be used very easily. I have developed application using it in JSP/Servlets.

Earlier Erricson developed Mobile JavaServer Faces kit for the same purpose. It was so good and appreciated by developer that it is now moved to java.net community named Mobile JSF. You can also check this at https://mobilejsf.dev.java.net.

It has also some mechanism to support multiple mobile profiles, i think, as i have not used it yet.

You can check my post at http://rightsection.blogspot.com/2008/12/mobile-web-development-its-easy-now.html. I have explained the XHTML-MP, WAP 1.x and WAP 2.0 etc.

Hi Asif,

At that time I have used wurlf to generate the UI. It was a good option to implement a mobile web application at that time. Today, I'm not working with mobile app anymore. Do you know if the wurlf list is still current? And it's good to know that Ericson have developed a JSF kit to mobile development and have disponibilized it throught java.net.

Thanks for the news,
Bruno.
