Subject [Myfaces Wiki] Update of "Drafts/Site/Trinidad" by BartKummel
Date Sat, 12 Feb 2011 13:15:52 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

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


New page:
Trinidad is a very extensive set of JSF components. It was developed by Oracle under the name
ADF Faces. When Oracle donated this component set to the ADF Faces project, it was renamed
to Trinidad. As with the Core project, there are three versions of Trinidad for each version
of the JSF standard. Trinidad releases numbered 1.0.x are compatible with JSF 1.1, and releases
numbered 1.2.x are
compatible with JSF 1.2. Releases for JSF 2.0 are numbered 2.0.x. At this moment, only beta
releases are available for JSF 2.0.

Some of the most important characteristics of Trinidad are:
 * It has a large number of components. There is a component for nearly everything, in Trinidad.
 * It has many “all-in-one” components. Some of the Trinidad components render multiple
elements. With some other component sets, we need several components to get the same effect.
 * It has advanced skinning possibilities.
 * It has a lot of advanced options for displaying tabular and hierarchical data.
 * It has a chart component, making it fairly easy to display numeric data in a visual way.
 * It has a dialog framework, making it easy to create pop-up dialogs.
 * “Partial page rendering”, client-side validation and conversion, and other AJAX functionality
are embedded in most components and is easy to add where needed. (This is especially important
for JSF 1.2 users.)
