RichFaces 4 is a component library for JavaServer Faces, and an advanced framework for easily integrating AJAX capabilities into business applications. It lets you quickly develop next-generation web applications based on JSF 2/Ajax.
In this definitive RichFaces 4 book, instead of using JBoss Tools, the author bases all examples on Maven so that any IDE can be used—whether it's NetBeans, Eclipse, JBoss or even Spring.
Practical RichFaces also describes how to best take advantage of RichFaces—the integration of the Ajax4jsf and RichFaces libraries—to create flexible and powerful programs. Assuming some JSF background, it shows how you can radically reduce programming time and effort to create rich AJAX-based applications.
