JSF 2.0 portlet development

Hi fellows of the ranch,

I'm new in the world of J2EE and I'm trying to develop JSF 2.0 portlets to run on JBoss Portal 2.7.

Unfortunately no JSF 2.0 portlet bridge standard exists (only for JSF 1.2), JBoss Portlet bridge still only supports JSF 1.2 and I didn't find any tutorial to make even a "Hello World" JSF 2.0 portlet.

The only thing I found is the project portletfaces, a JSF 2.0 portlet bridge, but it can only make it work on Liferay (for wich it is optimized), not on JBoss Portal (or even GateIn). Unfortunately for my project I absolutely need to use JBoss Portal...

Can anyone help me? Is it mandatory to use a portlet bridge for JSF 2.0 portlet development? Am I screwed?

Thanks a lot!

Nicolas!

Hi Nicolas,

Yes, its required to use a Portlet Bridge to develop portlets that make use of JSF 2.0 or any other web framework. The difference between portlet environment (consisting of render and action phases) and the web application environment is bridged by the portlet bridge component, therefore, its required.
