Description: Many JSF Developers have not thrived with JSF 1.1 and 1.2, because of deficiencies in the language in those versions. But Java professional worldwide have invigorated the JSF 2.0 redo. JSF 1.2 turned out to be weak in many areas: it needed a good built-in templating structure, was awkward when it came to obtaining static resources, and needed additional event hooks; JSF 1.2 also needed Ajax integration, the ability to do composite components, to save state more efficiently, to use POST-REDIRECT-GET action instead of POST action, and a host of other smaller improvements. JSF 2.0 has infused JSF with life and given JSF back its edge by addressing these and other deficiencies. The Java EE community today now builds its health by adopting JSF 2.0!
