JSF 2.3: JSF 2.2 Compatible mode

JSF 2.2 Compatible mode

For those not ready for new CDI activation, JSF 2.3 provides a compatible mode to make your codes working seamlessly with a JSF 2.2 faces-config.xml.
In contrast with the former JSF 2.3 configration, we should perform some modificaiton here.
  1. Use a 2.2 versioned faces-config.xml instead. ​
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
    <faces-config xmlns="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee"
       xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
       xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee/web-facesconfig_2_2.xsd"
       version="2.2">
    </faces-config>
  2. Declare a beans.xml, CDI is enabled by default in Java EE 7, so it is optional.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <beans xmlns="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee"
        xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
        xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee/beans_2_0.xsd"
        bean-discovery-mode="all" 
        version="2.0">
    </beans>
  3. Add 3.1 versioned web.xml. It is optional, but the compatible mode only works with 3.1, does not work with a 4.0 versioned web.xml.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <web-app xmlns="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee"
       xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
       xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee http://xmlns.jcp.org/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_3_1.xsd"
       version="3.1">
    </web-app>
  4. Remove the @FacesConfig annotated class, it is only for JSF 2.3.
Done.
Now create a simple sample to try it.
Firstly create a simple backing bean.
@Named
@RequestScoped
public class HelloBean {

    private String message;

    public String getMessage() {
        return message;
    }

    public void setMessage(String message) {
        this.message = message;
    }

    public void sayHi() {
        this.message = "Greeting at " + LocalDateTime.now();
    }

    @Override
    public int hashCode() {
        int hash = 7;
        hash = 13 * hash + Objects.hashCode(this.message);
        return hash;
    }

    @Override
    public boolean equals(Object obj) {
        if (this == obj) {
            return true;
        }
        if (obj == null) {
            return false;
        }
        if (getClass() != obj.getClass()) {
            return false;
        }
        final HelloBean other = (HelloBean) obj;
        if (!Objects.equals(this.message, other.message)) {
            return false;
        }
        return true;
    }

}
And a simple Facelets template.

         <form jsf:id="form">
            <p>
                <strong>Say Hi to JSF 2.3: </strong> 
                <div>#{helloBean.message}</div>
            </p>
            <p>
                <input type="submit" value="Login" jsf:action="#{helloBean.sayHi()}" />
            </p>
        </form>   
    </body>
 
</html>
In NetBeans IDE, run it on Glassfish directly, finally it will open the home page.
Get the source codes from my github account.

Build a Reactive application with Angular 5 and Spring Boot 2.0

I have created a post to describe Reactive programming supports in Spring 5 and its subprojects, all codes of this article are updated the latest Spring 5 RELEASE, check spring-reactive-sample under my Github account.
In this post, I will create a simple blog system, including:
A user can sign in and sign out.An authenticated user can create a post.An authenticated user can update a post.Only the user who has ADMIN role can delete a post.All users(including anonymous users) can view post list and post details.An authenticated user can add his comments to a certain post. The backend will be built with the latest Spring 5 reactive stack, including:
Spring Boot 2.0, at the moment the latest version is 2.0.0.M7Spring Data MongoDB supports reactive operations for MongoDBSpring Session adds reactive support for WebSessionSpring Security 5 aligns with Spring 5 reactive stack The frontend is an Angular based SPA and it will be generated by Angular CLI.
The source code is hosted on Github, …

Activating CDI in JSF 2.3

Activating CDI in JSF 2.3 When I upgraed my Java EE 7 sample to the newest Java EE 8, the first thing confused me is the CDI beans are not recoganized in Facelects template in a JSF 2.3 based web applicaiton, which is working in the development version, but in the final release version, they are always resolved as null. I filed an issue on Mojarra and discussed it with the developers from communities and the JSF experts.
According to the content of README, In a JSF 2.3 application, to activate CDI support, declaring a 2.3 versioned faces-config.xml and adding javax.faces.ENABLE_CDI_RESOLVER_CHAIN in web.xml is not enough, you have to declare @FacesConfig annotated class to enable CDI.
Here is the steps I created a workable JSF 2.3 applicatoin in Java EE 8.
Create a Java web application, this can be done easily by NetBeans IDE, or generated by Maven archetype, for exmaple.
$ mvn archetype:generate -DgroupId=com.example -DartifactId=demo -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-w…

JSF 2.3:Websocket support

Websocket support One of the most attractive features is JSF 2.3 added native websocket support, it means you can write real-time applications with JSF and no need extra effort.
To enable websocket support, you have to add javax.faces.ENABLE_WEBSOCKET_ENDPOINT in web.xml.
<context-param> <param-name>javax.faces.ENABLE_WEBSOCKET_ENDPOINT</param-name> <param-value>true</param-value> </context-param> Hello Websocket Let's start with a simple example.
