Apache MyFaces Core

Build Status License

Apache's implementation of the JavaServer Faces (JSF) and Jakarta Faces specification

Branches

Master

Master / 2.3-next equals the JSF 2.3 API but delegates @ManagedBeans to CDI. ManagedBeans configured via XML are completely ignored. The implementation of the old FacesEL (javax.faces.el.*) also has been completely removed. It will be the base of the upcoming JSF 4.0.

3.0.x

The upcoming Jakarta Faces 3.0. It's equals to JSF 2.3 but with “jakarta.faces” packages and constants instead of “javax.faces”.

2.3.x

JavaServer Faces 2.3 implementation

Minimum Requirements (trunk / 2.3-next)

  • Java 1.8
  • Servlet 3.0
  • EL 2.2
  • CDI 1.2
  • JSTL 1.2 (optional)
  • BV 1.1 (optional)

Servlet 4.0 will enable JSF to serve resources via HTTP/2 push.

Installation

mvn clean install

Quarkus extension

Since 2.3-next a Quarkus extension is available. A sample project can be found here: https://github.com/apache/myfaces/blob/master/extensions/quarkus/showcase/

Differences to a normal servlet container

  • You need to put your views under src/main/resources/META-INF/resources as Quarkus doesn't create a WAR and src/main/webapp is ignored!
  • Session replication / passivation / clustering is not supported yet by Quarkus
