  === What is the difference between javax.faces.STATE_SAVING_METHOD client and server? ===
- See:
+ In short, server-side-state stores information held by the UI components (ie the "widgets")
in the HTTP Session, while client-side state stores it in 
+ hidden fields in the page sent back to the user.
+ Client-side-state scales much better for very large numbers of users, as no memory is required
on the server for user state. However the
+ disadvantage is that more data gets transferred across the network for each request.
+ Any session-scoped managed beans still remain in the http session, even with client-side-state
selected; this flag only affects where the
+ JSF implementation stores data that the UI components hold internally.
+ For the technical details, see:
