Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-9469) POC: Using JSF
Date Sat, 08 Jul 2017 19:34:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-9469?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16079287#comment-16079287

James Yong commented on OFBIZ-9469:

Hi [~mbrohl],

I wanted to do complex forms like the picture below. 

Since JSF is also using declarative UI and has functions similar to OFBiz Widget's decorator-screen
& action tags, I think it may get better acceptance from the developer community than
using a purely javascript framework. Another good thing is that there is no request/view mapping
required for JSF. 

I am also open to other alternatives to allow OFBiz to build forms that are on par with other
ERP system.
At the end of the day, I hope to focus more on contributing business-related functionality
rather than the UI framework.

Best Regards,

> JavaServerFaces (JSF) can be used to build Rich Internet Applications which is suitable
for business-facing part of an ERP system.
> Some Advantages
> ==============
> JSF is similar to OFBiz widget; both can use declarative XML UI. 
> JSF can map directly to a backing bean and doesn't requires any request mapping.
> JSF also allows the direct coding of HTML within the XML, while OFBiz widgets need to
link to external FTL file.
> I have done some initial work to add JSF capabilities for developers to evaluate its
suitability further. It is also possible to render OFBiz Widgets (for reuse) and programmatically
placed within JSF, but I haven't go into it yet.
