Product Release Announcement - ICEsoft Technologies, Inc., announces the release of ICEfaces™ v0.2.0 Alpha.

ICEfaces is the industry's first standards-compliant solution for rapidly creating rich web applications that are easily maintained, extended and scaled, at a lower cost. ICEfaces is an extension to JavaServer™ Faces that hides most of the complexity of rich web development from the developer, allowing developers to rapidly create all Java, thin client, rich web applications.

This release contains a number of significant product improvements as well as additional support for MyFaces custom components. Here is a summary of the new features included in this release of ICEfaces:

Direct-to-DOM Rendering:

  • Rendering APIs (both Java and JavaScript) have been published in support of Direct-to-DOM render kit development for custom components. This allows developers to make existing JSF components Direct-to-DOM enabled.
  • Tutorials and example source code are provided that illustrate how Direct-to-DOM renderers are developed.

ICEfaces Framework:

  • Concurrent DOM Views provide support for viewing an ICEfaces application in multiple browser windows from a single browser session.

MyFaces Standard Extended and Custom Component Support:

  • Direct-to-DOM renderkit for MyFaces standard extended components is provided.
  • Direct-to-DOM renderkit, including source code, for MyFaces custom components is provided. The following custom components are included: tree, tabbed pane, data scroller, layout, navigation, panel stack, sort header, and swap image.
