ICEfaces 1.6 - Seam Integration

The ICEfaces development team has been working closely with the JBoss Seam team to build a vibrant ecosystem of Ajax-based capabilities for Seam. ICEfaces 1.6.0 now offers complete integration with JBoss Seam. Included in this integration are enhancements to SeamGen that support the rapid generation of functional Seam + ICEfaces applications. The ICEfaces 1.6.0 release also contains a number of source code examples, including the ICEfaces + Seam Component Showcase that illustrates the entire ICEfaces rich component suite functioning within a Seam-based application.

“The integration of Seam and ICEfaces validates the strength of the Seam ecosystem and underscores our commitment to developer choice and productivity by supporting multiple Ajax technologies within Seam," said Gavin King, project lead for JBoss Seam, JBoss, a division of Red Hat. "With ICEfaces 1.6, developers can transparently add Ajax to their Seam applications and benefit from the collaboration capabilities of Ajax Push and the productivity gains of auto-generating ICEfaces + Seam applications with SeamGen.”

Other fixes and enhancements included in ICEfaces 1.6.0:

  • New Collapsible Panel component
  • Support for integrating Apache MyFaces Tomahawk components
  • Support for JSF 1.2 runtime environments, such as Glassfish when using Facelets
  • Multi-window support for Ajax push over a single browser connection
  • Optimized rendering algorithm for improved application responsiveness
  • Enhanced connection monitoring and configuration features ensures asynchronous connection health and application responsiveness
  • Optional support for the Open Ajax Alliance Hub
  • ICEfaces Ajax bridge completely prevents cross-site request forgery exploits

    Enterprise Security with ICEfaces - Whitepaper

    The question is simple: Can enterprise application developers deliver Rich Internet Applications using Ajax techniques, but do so in a secure and cost-effective manner?

    In this paper we will examine some of the fundamental security issues related to client-centric Ajax techniques, and will show how these issues can be overcome using a server-centric approach based on Java EE and ICEfaces.
