Subject [Myfaces Wiki] Update of "Drafts/Site/Tomahawk" by BartKummel
Date Sat, 12 Feb 2011 13:08:55 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Myfaces Wiki" for change notification.

The "Drafts/Site/Tomahawk" page has been changed by BartKummel.


New page:
Tomahawk has been part of the Apache MyFaces project from the very beginning. Its main goal
is to implement a larger set of components than the rather minimal set that is defined in
the JSF specification. Tomahawk contains both extended versions of standard JSF components
and components that are not defined at all in the standard. Some examples of components that
are added by Tomahawk are:
 * A CAPTCHA component
 * An extensive data table component that includes pagination functionality for larger data
 * A file upload component
 * Various date selection components
 * A google calendar-like component to display and edit schedules

Tomahawk also features some custom validators that make it easy to validate, for instance,
credit card numbers and email addresses. There are three variants of Tomahawk, as follows:
 * Tomahawk for JSF 1.1 is compatible with both JSF 1.1 and JSF 1.2;
 * Tomahawk for JSF 1.2 takes advantage of some features of JSF 1.2, making it incompatible
with JSF 1.1;
 * Tomahawk for JSF 2.0 is still based on the Tomahawk for JSF 1.1 version, but has some minor
changes to take advantage of JSF 2.0 features.
