hi Bart,

Is MyFaces suitable for developing web applications for mobile devices like iPhone and Blackberry? Do all the MyFaces component renderers emit JavaScript that is compatible on these devices? Are there any best practices in using MyFaces/JSF for mobile web applications?

Thanks,
Sobhana

Hi Sobhana,

I don't have any experience with mobile applications myself. However, I know the MyFaces Trinidad JSF components do have mobile support. There's a fair deal of documentation about that on the Trinidad website: here and here. If you have any specific questions to get started, I am sure some people over at the MyFaces mailing list are willing to help.

Best regards,
Bart Kummel

Go light on the JavaScript on mobile devices. Some of them are pretty weak on the features they support.

And I won't even go into the perils of using Flash!
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
