New RichFaces 4 book

Happy 2011!

It’s new year, and what could be better than to start the first post of 2011 with some great RichFaces news.

New RichFaces 4 book
Ilya Shaikovsky (@ilya_shaikovsky ), a RichFaces team members and myself started working on a new RichFaces book. It’s the second edition of Practical RichFaces (Apress) book and will cover RichFaces version 4 and its new features such as client-side validation, cloud deployment and more. The book is scheduled to be released in April. I will be posting more updates as we write. Here is a (very) tentative TOC:

  1. Introduction
  2. Ajax in JSF 2
  3. Starting with RichFaces, Maven setup
  4. a4j:tags, features and concepts
  5. rich:tags
