Hey. I am just playing with JSF 1.1 and I have the following questions : I want to create an action listener (implementing javax.faces.event. ActionListener). this listener will gets the parameter from the first jsf page (register.jsf), and insert these values into a database (ofcourse using JDBC). but the problem is I dont know how to get these parameters in JSF. any ideas how to perform this ? I am using a JavaBean to store the values entered by the user, but how to get this bean in the second jsf page ? (I am new to frameworks like JSF and struts, so if you any ideas to how to perform my requirments , please tell me. something like : don't use action listeners to insert data into the database, use ...). I appreciate your help because I realy loved JSF. thanks.
You need to bind your JSF UI Components to your backing bean. This is done using the JSF tag library tags. When the form is submitted, JSF will take care of populating the bean for you. You can put the bean in either request or session scope. If in session scope, you can access the bean from multiple pages.
I recommend you link into some of the articls and tutorials on my website. They should give you tons of help.
