JavaServer Faces is the Java EE standard component-based web application framework. This course will teach you how to use JSF to build a complete web application, including building the user interface and business logic.
At the core of building web applications with Java EE is a thorough knowledge of JavaServer Faces, the standard Java EE web application framework. In this course, Getting Started with JavaServer Faces, you will learn how to build web applications using JavaServer Faces. First, you will learn how to setup, build, and deploy a JSF project. Next, you'll explore how to create well-structured web applications using facelets and components, as well as how to handle user input. Finally, you'll learn how to work with AJAX to make your JSF web applications more dynamic. When you're finished with this course, you will have a foundational knowledge of JavaServer Faces that will help you move forward to become a proficient Java EE web application developer.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Jesper de Jong, and welcome to my course, Java EE: Getting Started with JavaServer Faces. I'm an independent software developer, and I have a lot of experience with designing and building systems using Java EE, which is the standard set of APIs for building enterprise Java software. Web applications are at the heart of online business, so if you're a professional software developer, you have to know how to build web applications. JavaServer faces is an important framework for building web applications because it's part of the Java EE standard. This course is an introduction to JSF for programmers who already know how to program in Java and who want to learn how to create web applications using JSF. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include using the facelets templating system to build web pages implementing business logic in manage beans, handling user input including validation and conversion, understanding and using navigation, and building your own JSF components. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid foundation to work on your own JSF web applications. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the Java programming language and have some basic knowledge on HTML. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn JSF with the Java EE: Getting Started with JavaServer Faces course at Pluralsight.
