We get a first glimpse at what Prime Teknoloji’s PrimeFaces 3.3 with RC1 showing off over 100 improvements.

The latest version of JavaServer Faces libary PrimeFaces 3.3 has
reached the first release candidate stage, promising over 100
improvements to the rich JSF component suite, since March’s last
full release.

Creator Cagatay Civici (self-dubbed Optimus Prime for the
project) detailed all that is new within a blogpost, noting that
the bulk of the work had been done in terms of ‘major internal
refactoring and fixes on Ajax Framework’. But new features also
appear such as PartialSubmit, making
lightweight requests possible and PrimeFaces Selector
API
 (PFS) for integrating jQuery in with a JSF component
referencing model.

Aside from that, there’s menu component
enhancements
 (and features for Message Components), new
Ajax events for Data Table and a native widget that reimplements a
Star Rating. To this we give five stars.

To check out all that’s new here, see the
ChangeLog
 and it’s fairly clear that there’s a lot of
groundwork already covered for the final release, which is
encouraging. With new tidbits here and there and a general polish
to an already-established JSF suite, PrimeFaces 3.3 RC1 looks set
to once again be great.

Finally, in typical Michael Bay-fashion, they’ve produced a
preview trailer too! Pomp and circumstance for the self-proclaimed
‘JSF King.’ Either way, 3.3 is primed for success. Sorry about the
pun.
