posted 6 years ago
In the second article of this series on using storyboard design for Web applications, Steven Murray explains how to map the Storyboard design to a JSF implementation, giving special attention to Storyboard Controllers.
Here is an excerpt:
In part 1 of this series we discussed how to create storyboard designs for Web applications. In part 2 we are going to focus on how to map the design to a JSF implementation, giving special attention to Storyboard Controllers.
Controllers are the heart of the presentation tier, where they manage the behavior of the UI and direct the flow of information between the presentation and business models. Almost every article I read on JSF, and even the specification itself, references Model View Controller (MVC) without providing any concrete examples on how to actually use it in a JSF project. I hope to change that with the introduction of the Presentation Model.
