Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Interview with Exadel's Max Katz about JSF and AJAX
To:, MyFaces Development
<>, MyFaces Discussion


I'm pleased to announce that JSF Central has just published an interview
with Exadel senior systems engineer Max Katz. In the interview, Max talks
about the key value and benefits of JSF, how it compares to other
frameworks, why it is such a good fit for AJAX, and support for JSF
technology at Exadel.

Here's a quote:

KM: What do you think is the key value of JSF?

MK: It's definitely the component-based approach to building web
applications, and that it's a standard. JSF has introduced a new paradigm to
web application development-building applications out of components. It
allows developers to concentrate on application business logic rather than
on little details of HTML and other plumbing that is common to all web

Being a standard is very important for the community, and it helps vendors
like Exadel create advanced visual tools. The component-based approach also
gave rise to vendors building web components, which also benefits
developers. Instead of spending two weeks on integrating a calendar feature
into your application, you can now get a calendar component and concentrate
on the business problem you're trying to solve.

KM: Let's talk about AJAX for a moment. What do you think makes JSF such a
good fit for AJAX?

MK: It's the component approach that makes AJAX such a good fit for JSF. You
develop your application out of JSF components that provide AJAX
functionality. This approach hides all the complexity of JavaScript and XML.
Developers don't need to work with error-prone JavaScript making sure it
works in all browsers. The AJAX JSF components are tested, ready-to-use
components. From the developer perspective, there is really no difference
between using the commandButton standard component and using the JSF AJAX
drag-and-drop components. The AJAX component is simply a lot more
sophisticated in what it does. You can add AJAX functionality in a matter of
minutes by using such components. It's very powerful.
