I noticed that the term "backing bean" is not in the content of the Java EE 6 Tutorial produced by Oracle. If backing beans are obsolete what has replaced them? Thanks.

I don't know what Oracle's problem is. Backing beans are still backing beans. Which is to say, JavaBeans that provide the backend data for rendering JSF Views.

The term Managed Bean is often used. It's not quite identical in concept to Backing Bean, but most of the time, the difference between Managed Beans and Backing Beans is of no importance.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
