Hi I have just started to learn JSF along with JPA.And i was wondering if we can display all the column names (not row or data present in the row) of a database as columns in <rich:dataTable>.My idea is that whenever a new column whenever a new column is added to a database a new column must be dynamically added into the JSF page.Any inputs are welcome.

You can us the rich:columns tag to support a varying number of columns in a rich:dataTable. However, the caption on the column will have to come from your model, since neither RichFaces nor core JSF have any direct connections to data persistency systems.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
